diy newspaper canvas art

This is an extremely easy way to display a favorite quote on the wall.

All you need is a canvas, newspaper, Elmers glue, paint brushes, and some paint.

Take the newspaper and tear into small pieces (as small or as big as you would like). Then take your glue and a paintbrush and brush the glue on the pieces of newspaper and attach to canvas. This will be messy. Allow the newspaper to dry and then lightly brush a coat of glue over the whole newspaper covered canvas (this will create a glaze over the canvas and assure that none of the newspaper will come up). After the canvas fully dries, paint your favorite quote or any other idea you have!
