instructions

  1. Either basecoat your canvases/ the inside of your trays/shadow boxes or trace your scrapbook paper and Mod Podge it down to fit your surface.
  2. To achieve a paper patterned pet silhouette, cut out your pet’s image and trace it on a piece of patterned paper. Mod Podge that onto your surface and let dry.
  3. To achieve a solid painted pet silhouette, cut out your pet’s image while leaving the rim of your pet image intact- this will act as a stencil. Tape the rim of your pet picture to your surface and stencil inside of it. Let dry.
  4. Draw bows and bowties on your patterned paper and Mod Podge them to your pets for added details.
