Feature Friday: Joy from Momma's Kinda Crafty

HI!  I am Joy from Momma's Kinda Crafty!
You can visit me here:

I am a mom to 4 crazy wonderful kids.  Been married for over 15 years.  We have recently finished school (whew!finally!) and moved to Montana. It is so nice to be a little closer to family.  In my stolen moments, (nap time, late at night, ect.) I love to craft and sew!  
 Yellowstone Park, August 2010

Today I want to share with you a fun craft I just finished for St. Patrick's Day!
To make my Glittery Shamrock Canvas, you will need:

 An artist canvas, mine is 10x10
      Green craft paint
            Mod podge, I used both matte and glossy finish
    Green Glitter     
Silver sequins
     Cut out of shamrock  (just draw an outline and cut the shape out)
A little patience....

Start by painting your canvas.  It doesn't have to be perfect as most of it will be covered.  Make sure to paint the edges well though.

Let dry.

 Cut out your shape.  And lay your pattern on your canvas.  If you need to tape the edges down, go ahead.  Now cover your shamrock opening with Mod podge.  Lay it on thick!

Then cover with glitter until well coated.   Shake off and reapply mod podge  and glitter if you have any bare spots.

Remove pattern and let dry a bit. 
I did the next step a little at a time.  Coat an area of your canvas with mod podge.  Cover with sequins. 
Do the same to the rest of the canvas a little at a time.  You will need to shake your canvas a few times to make sure to get off any sequins that are not sticking.  Once it is covered, let dry.

Apply a coat of glossy mod podge over the whole canvas.  Do not brush the mod podge on, just use your brush and dab it on all over to cover.  Let dry again.
I just love the way it looks in different lighting!

Thanks for letting me share with you today, and please come on over for a visit anytime!
