Mixed Media Collages

Collage canvases are a great way to express yourself and add a pop of color and design to your surroundings. Check out Google images for calacas to use as your focal point. Keep in mind, most images are copyrighted, but you can use them as long as you don’t sell them!

1. Write a poem, phrase, or random words on the canvas.
2. Coat with a layer of decoupage medium and add a layer of tissue paper, add a coat over the that. Let dry.
3. Add images, stenciled designers, stamped words.
4. Add glitter accents if desired.

TIP: Add painted designs to highlight certain areas.

Peace, love, and glitter!
