So, my roomies and I are hanging four canvases over our couch. The only guidlines for each one: use bright colors, paint your first initial. Here we go. I put down a layer of elmers glue mixed with water. Then I put down a layer of book pages over the whole canvas. Then a layer of confetti. Then two layers of tissues paper, and and a coat of peach paint, with glue between each layer. Then I made an "E" template and placed it on the canvas. I sponge painted over the whole thing with purple and then removed the "E" template. Tada!
