Modge Podge and Canvas= art

I have been wanting to somehow transpose a picture of the Jordan River Temple to a canvas. I wasn't sure how to do it until I came across this post here. She used stamps, but I am sure you could use whatever you want.

All you need for this project is:

photo of choice
Paint brush
A large printer or your local Kinkos
1 canvas
Wax paper and brayer (optional)

1. Take the photo to Kinko's and blow it up to the size that will fit the canvas.

2. Use Modge Podge to adhere the entire sheet to your canvas. You can place wax paper on top while it is still wet and use a brayer to try to smooth out any bubbles. You can wrap your paper around the sides as well to give the art a more finished look.

3. Let dry and attach hanging bracket or wire to the back for hanging.
