You will learn how this unique photo-art with the initials of your choice! SO simple that anyone can do it. Such a simple and unique DIY decor.
Hello Mod-hodgepodge-fans! I'm so excited to share this project with you all today–I just love how it turned out and to make it’s so easy. To gifts, the possibilities are endless . . . .this photo first type would be perfect for a baby gift, for a family holiday gift, or even a wedding gift (just the couple’s last initial). So, without further ADO, let’s get started!
Mod hodgepodge gloss
cardstock or photo paper
step 1: in the first step, you go in your word-processing program (or Photoshop if you have it), locate the font you want to use, and print the initial of your choice on 8 x 10 vellum.
Here’s a screenshot of my image in front of the print. As you might be able to see, I used Gil Sans Ultra Bold for my font, 750 pt. Other fonts that work well for this project, Berlin Sans and impact, which both came with my Microsoft Word program.
basically, you just want a heavy, chunky font. Print your letter on parchment (use a light gray color for the printing, instead of black), and cut out the letter.
step 2: Print your photo on cardstock or photo paper. Take your parchment letter and position it over your photo, moving them around until you are satisfied with the placement (the part of the image, the vellum is what is displayed on the screen.
step 3: Cut your first. You may be able to do this with a pair of scissors, or you may need an x-acto knife and Mat to use, a clean cut.
step 4: Take your first and apply a layer of Mod smorgasbord on the back. Position on the canvas and press firmly. Let dry completely.
Apply step 5: three thin coats of Mod-pick-and-mix to seal. This is a project in which several thin coats are preferable to fewer thick layers. Let dry completely between coats.
And there you have it! There are so many great ways to customize and be creative with this photo-art project, all with a black-and-white photo of the painting the canvases a bright, bold color before applying the first.
