Supplies: Shimelle True Stories (370704) - Grey Floral Paper, (370719) - Berry Infusion Paper; Gems (IR002267) - I-Rock Adhesive Gems; Paint - CraftSmart; Sealer - Mod Podge; Gel Medium - Liquitex; Spray Mount - Scotch; Die Cut Machine - Silhouette Cameo
Trim the True Stories (red diagonal) Berry Infusion paper into three 4x4 squares. Cut or punch several star shapes out of the (navy blue) Grey Floral paper. Cut the letters “USA” from white cardstock.
Spray the back side of each of the USA letters with temporary adhesive spray. Allow a few minutes to pass so that they become tacky and then apply each letter to a canvas, roughly centering the letter within the space.
Brush a thin coat of white paint over the entire surface of each canvas. (I mixed some heavy gel medium into my paint first as I was concerned that the inexpensive craft paint would be too thin.) Keep the coverage relatively light so that some of the patterned paper still shows through.
Brush a coat of Mod Podge on the backs of the navy blue stars and apply the stars to the canvases. Give the adhesive a couple of minutes to set and then apply a thin coat of the Mod Podge over the entire surface of the canvases. Allow to dry.
