Cut up magazine collage

My sister is in the process of changing rooms and had a bunch of pictures cut from magazines and calendars that she wanted to hang on to. Instead of taping them back up on her new walls, we decided to make them into a one of a kind collage to hang.
First she cut around the pictures that we were going to use so that they would take up the least amount of space possible.

The only supplies you need are Mod Podge, a paint brush, a canvas and pictures you want to collage.

Once you have all your pictures cut out lay them out and figure out how you want to arrange them on your canvas. You then need to brush the Mod Podge down on the canvas where you will be placing you pictures.

Keep adding Mod Podge to the canvas to keep your pictures down on the canvas and keep them as smooth as possible.

Once all your pictures are down brush a nice smooth layer of the Mod Podge over the top of it all.
Allow it to completely dry and you will have a beautiful, shiny work of art. You can leave it as is or you can add embellishments to enhance it and add dimension such as buttons, flowers, ribbon, beads or anything your heart desires.
