Art and Peace

Make a statement while you’re making art! Turn a simple canvas into an oh-so-cool collage with papers, fabrics, trims and Aleene’s® adhesives.

 Print

Instructions:

  1. Pour Collage Pauge onto disposable plate and use foam brush to brush onto canvas in small sections at a time. While glue is still wet, immediately add strips and sections of torn scrapbook paper then brush another coat of Collage Pauge over the top. Continue process, covering entire canvas.
  2. Cut out peace symbols from animal print fabric scraps. If desired, first create symbols on fabric with chalk pencil. Using same collage technique, adhere symbols to canvas.
  3. Cut out the words “Peace” from five or more scrapbook papers and adhere to canvas.
  4. Glue sequin trim to canvas with Tacky Glue.
  5. Glue photo corners, beads and scrapbook paper cutouts to empty spaces in the collage.
  6. To remove any air bubbles from underneath the paper, dip fingers in water and smooth out the surface, starting in the center and working in a circular motion outward. Make sure every layer is covered with the adhesive. Let dry.
  7. Rub edges of canvas with ink pad to create a distressed look.

  • Seed beads (black, blue)
  • Photo corners
  • 16” x 20” canvas
