Newspaper Art

Newspaper Art


Pinterest has made its mark on our society, changing arts and craft time indefinitely.  This is fantastic for me, someone who loves a project but lacks creativity on their own.  And this latest newspaper art memorializing my favorite hometown (Chicago!!) is one of the easiest and cutest pins I've found.  It took me just a few hours.

Thanks mom for sending me the papers!

One quick search on Pinterest of "Newspaper Art" and you'll find hundreds of amazing and creative ideas. Here's one example (credit to tzaddihome on etsy):


Items you'll need:
- Canvas, any size you'd like
- Mod Podge (dries clear in matte or gloss)
- Sponge Brush
- Newspaper, dictionary pages, old books, etc.
- black paint
- Thin brush



Rip, snip, tear, place, and mod podge away.  I will caution that newspaper tends to ripple and create air bubbles.  Be patient, go slow and really press the brush into the paper to push all those out.  

It will get messy and sticky but it all washes right off with water!

Allow the paper to dry on the canvas for at least a few hours, I did mine over night, before painting. 

Add birds, hearts, quotes, whatever you desire!

Hang, level and enjoy!
