I had these three pieces of art (I say the word “art” very loosely) that I hung in one of my bathrooms when I had a nature-y theme. They are just pressed fiberboard with some picture on it. I have been saving them to re-do them. This process is similar to Eightcrazy’s Wall Art. Nowadays getting plain canvases this size are not cheap though. I am betting you can find something similar to these at the Dollar Store.
The sides were an ugly gold gild. So I spray painted the sides with the apple green spray paint. I wasn’t concerned about covering the whole thing because I was going to cover it with paper.
Then I cut some paper to size.
With a foam brush I painted on a light coat of Modge Podge (I like the matte finish) and then put the paper on the glue.
The key for me with decoupage is a brayer. You can see what one looks like here. You press really hard and I NEVER get any bubbles, it goes on perfect everytime.
