perspective photo art

Upcycle your favorite photo and create a unique piece of art with this creative mixed media project.
Step 1
Stain the outside of the wood plaque. Use a paintbrush to paint on the stain, one section at a time. Use a paper towel to wipe away excess stain. Cover the entire surface. Let dry.  
Step 2
Dip the side of a flat paintbrush in green paint and dry brush paint up and down over the stain. Lightly brush the paint on, leaving parts of the wood still showing through. Let dry.  
Step 3
Print a photo onto computer paper that is the same width as the plaque, and cut out negative space. 
Step 4
Attach the photo to the plaque by applying Mod Podge® to the back of the photo using a paintbrush and laying in place on the plaque. Use your finger to smooth out photo and remove bubbles. Wipe away excess Mod Podge®.  
Step 5
Use a pencil to draw floral embellishments or doodles around the photo and paint over lines with white paint and a detail brush. Let dry.  
Step 6
Share your project photos with #MadeWithMichaels
