Materials List

  • Mod Podge ® Ultra Gloss, 8 oz.
  • Small glass pieces, green and blue
  • Turquoise scrapbooking paper
  • Rectangular wooden canvas

Instructions

  1. Cut the scrapbooking paper to fit the size of the wooden canvas.

  2. Spray the Mod Podge Ultra Matte onto a paper towel to prime the pump.

  3. Spray a generous amount of Mod Podge Ultra Gloss on the wood. Also, spray an even coat of Mod Podge Ultra Gloss onto the back of the scrapbooking paper.

  4. Apply the scrapbooking paper to the wood and adjust the positioning if necessary. Let dry according to the instructions on the bottle.

  5. Starting on the left side of the wood, spray a generous amount of Mod Podge Ultra Gloss and apply blue glass pieces, arranging them so that they fit snuggly into place. Continue this on the left side so that about 1/3 of the wood is covered in glass pieces.

  6. Starting on the right side, apply a generous amount of Mod Podge Ultra Gloss and apply green glass pieces, arranging them so that they fit snuggly into place. Again, continue this until the right 1/3 of the wood is covered in green pieces.

  7. In the center of the wood, repeat the same process, but use both blue and green pieces. This will create an ombre effect. Let dry.

  8. Apply an even coat of Mod Podge Ultra Gloss to the enter wooden canvas to seal. Let dry.
