Crafting for my new apartment continues...I blame Pinterest. I saw a pin for how to create coasters using old Lilly Pulitzer agenda pages (totally plan on doing), and I figured why not use them for something bigger? I had a vision for a large, modge-podged, Lilly-themed piece of artwork to adorn my walls, and today this finally came to life.
I recently ordered the new Lilly Pulitzer 2013 Jumbo Agenda (LOVE it),
I had an old Lilly shopping bag still laying around, so I decided to use that as the center of the piece.
Cardboard backing from the frame served as the base, and using (homemade) 'modge podge' I applied the pages.
If you're interested in how to create and use homemade modge podge, see my previous post here.
I have discovered the keys to using modge podge are: use sparingly (light coats, please),
keep a rolling pin nearby to smooth things out, and let dry completely before applying another coat.
Follow those simple steps and...
Voilà! Beautiful, Lilly-esque, artwork.
