Sealife Canvas Art using Mod Podge

Gah!  I’m in total love with these little fellows above.  I can’t believe they turned out so well!  I guess that’s ok to say about a project I did.  ;)   It was my second time to use Mod Podge & goodness gracious the possibilities are endless!
I’ve had a serious crush on this octopus, for like ever!  So I grab some others so he wouldn’t be lonely from The Graphic Fairy blog, another place – where the possibilities are endless.  And started editing/coloring the pictures.

I edited them all through the Ribbet site. 
*You know the one that is exactly like the old picnik?*
I just cropped, played around with the hues & undertone & was able to give them all a brighter more modern look.  I did print them out through picasa.  I feel you have better understanding of how your edits will look with picasa’s printing & the preview options is perfect for projects like this.  I couldn’t find the exact lobster I used.  I did these a while ago & I swear the Summer is such a blur to me right now.  Anyways – follow the instructions using Mod Podge & glue them on a canvas.  Super easy!

They aren’t perfect but I’m loving the Sealife added into our decor for the Summer.   I also scored some major Mommy points with my oldest on this decorating project!
High fives all around.  Woot!

  1. [...] Here’s another fun idea: find some images of sea life and edit them as you want. Play around with colors and hues until you’re happy with the way they look. Then print them out and glue them on a canvas. It’s very easy and it’s also a project that takes little time unless you’re undecided when editing the images.{found on nestofposies}. [...]
