Expecto Patronum

"Grandma, why are you painting on newspaper?"
"Because I can."

I'm not doing any kind of tutorial - the inter-web-nets is dang slow here in the South.  Dang slow.  It took about 10 minutes to upload the photo- and that was on the third or fourth try.

Here's how to do it:
  •  Make up fake modge podge (Elmer's glue diluted with water)
  • Apply ripped up pieces of newspaper (phone book pages would work too) to canvas. There should be a layer of modge podge under and on top of all of the paper.  Wrap the paper around the edges. Let dry.
  • trace silhouette of deer, then fill in with black paint.
  • stencil lettering on using Tangelo Orange paint. Stencil is 4" tall "Nuevo" letters (from Michael's).

This was my Pinterest inspiration.
