instagram wall art

Gregg (le boyfriend) just moved into a new place, and I can probably assume that his walls will soon be covered with pieces of my handmade art: my very own gallery if you will. The first piece will be an instagram canvas wall art I found on A Beautiful Mess. This is the perfect project for an instagram addict like me (follow me at @dianango), and it's almost as simple as picking out which instagram filter to use. instagram canvas

1. Collect materials: Nine 4x4 instagram photos (I ordered my prints through PostalPix, straight from my iphone),12 x 12 canvas, matte Mod Podge, and a paint brush.

2. Arrange photos.  After you are satisfied, place the photos on your table in the same arrangement so you don't forget it.

3. Paint layer of Mod Podge on canvas.

4. Adhere photos to canvas.  A good tip is to start with the corners, this should help with spacing. After you're done, let it dry for 20-30 minutes.

When it completely dries, paint a top coat over your entire canvas.

The finish product is left with a few streaks but I think that gives it that handmade feel.  I'm sure another layer of Mod Podge would do the trick.
