Handmade Monday # 12 - Mod Podge Bowl

A Summer (and rather Patriotic) Mod Podge Bowl

Joining in with Wendy's Handmade Monday, here is my Bowl!

Thanks as always to Wendy at 1st Unique Gifts  for organising us - have a look at what else is happening in the crafting world by clicking on her link!

I picked up the bowl last weekend, at a Boot Sale (50p) It is a plain cream ceramic bowl with a glazed finish.

The collage cuttings were taken from Sunday newspaper magazines (the centre peice is Sam Branson's middle in a Union Jack waistcoat! - sideways on in this photo...you can see the buttons)

The girls are all in Summer wear, with a touch of Africa - a few elephants and dry bush!

The edges of the paper cuttings were uneven around the edge, so I stuck on (again with Mod Podge) an edging of cream cotton lace, which gave the bowl a good finish.

Using Mod Podge ( a glue/sealer/varnish all in one) it is easy to make a sealed collage with anything - my next project is a set of cork-backed table mats (also 50p at the Boot Sale!)

So in keeping with the theme of My Blog - why not try this with your group. Another idea is finding a picture frame, with a broad flat surface and covering that with a Mod Podge collage.

This craft would work well in pairs, so get Mod Podging - it's easy to do and with great results! Look at Modge Pod Rocks for more info. on this medium...
