Select your canvas size & edited image. Print image slightly larger than canvas size on card stock wrapped in tissue paper, see video. Peel off tissue paper & lay over canvas, run fingers over edge when you have it centered as a guide.
Spray canvas with tacky spray & carefully lay tissue paper image over. Smooth down middle & work outward pressing firmly, one hand on top and the other under back, as to not stretch or pull canvas. Cut away excess along the top edge making a straight line, smaller scissors are sometimes better.
Let dry for an hour in dry & cool place. Take Mod-Podge Sealer & spray outside.
Let dry. Roll on 2 coats of Mod-Podge Gloss to top, let dry.

Enjoy your beautiful collected images from summer.
