How to make Glazed Wall Art

Lately I have been working on decorating my family bathroom.

I needed something so fun for the walls and I wanted a lot of color
to make the room pop a little.


First: Gather your supplies!
You will need:

  • 12x12 scrapbook Paper
  • 12x12 Plywood
  • "Pour-On" Glaze
  • Spray Adhesive
  • Glue Gun
  • Ribbon
  • Plastic Cups


Second: Spray the back of your paper with the adhesive
and glue them to the plywood.

(hint:) I had my hubby cut up a sheet of plywood in advance.
We found it in the lumber section at Home Depot and
one small sheet made 8 12x12 pieces.

I am making some without the glaze for my spare bedroom.

Third: Cover your table and set the wood up on plastic cups.
Make sure your cups are all they way underneath the wood,
so if you do happen to drip a little, it doesn't stick to the cups.

Fourth: Mix and Mix and Mix your Pour-On.
This is the same stuff you use for the Glazed Washer Necklaces.

Fifth: Pour it onto your paper and spread it evenly around.
I used the back of a plastic spoon, but you can use a Popsicle stick too.

(Hint:) The glaze will turn your paper a little bit see-through -
it's not big deal unless the back has really funky designs on it.
Most scrapbook paper has a plain color or white back which work better
than those with dots or other things.
Three of my papers had little designs on the back - Two looked really awesome!
One - went in the garbage.

Sixth: Let them dry for a day or two.

Seventh: Flip your art work over and measure 6 inches to find the middle.

Eighth: Hot glue your ribbon on the back.

Ninth: Hang them up and enjoy!!

First of all I came over to thank you for linking up to my first ever linky party at Becolorful.
Then I cruised around here for a bit and found this post. Love it. I am a fan of quotes and I think this would be fun to do with quotes I have printed off the computer. Crazy how one idea can spur another.
Thanks for the submission and now the inspiration. :)
