-A tip to help you spread that final layer of Mod Podge on top of the photo – have a bowl of water and paper towel nearby. When the Mod Podge starts to cure and gets more difficult to spread, dampen your brush a tiny bit – it will give you a few more minutes of work time. However, keep in mind that texture is a good thing – it will give your photo depth and make the light bounce off of it in interesting ways when you look at it up close.
The colors in the water reminded me of my Aquamarine Chiang Mai dragon pillow that was in my living room. I don’t know if I’ll keep it up here but it’s a fun pop of color for the winter.
After saving and planning for years, I’m crazy grateful that we were able to go on that adventure to Hawaii and make one of our dreams a reality. Looking at this photo every day reminds me – even when my house is a mess, the bills need to be paid, the kids are being challenging, and I’m grumpy – how incredibly blessed I am!
Art that is easy, inexpensive and special – what could be better?

While Staples is running their 50% off sale I’m off to make another masterpiece. And if you make wood mounted photo art send me a photo – I’d love to see it!
Pin for later!
