Since school let out for the summer and my summer job hasn't started yet, I've been bored out of my mind. So, naturally, I've been crafting up a storm. Here are my first attempts at Mod Podge.

A small plastic drawer set (about 7"x7"x7") for my desk at school collaged with musicans and other tidbits from Rolling Stone

close ups of sides



Spot any familiar faces?!

And a lockable DVD case (purchased for under $5) as a graduation present for a film enthusiest friend of mine. Collaged with the covers/posters of some of his favorite movies.

closed


opened (holds 60 disks)


close up of top (the top was originally clear red plastic. what I didnt collage I colored with black paint pen)

Feedback welcome!! Any tips for future projects always welcome!!!

Do you find that Mod Podge can stay a bit tacky long after it has dried?  I made some Christmas ornaments awhile back.  You have to be careful what you wrap them in, because they can stick to regular or tissue paper.  :p

Haha, I noticed that. I collaged a blank book with a bunch of miscellaneous pictures last week and the Mod Podge is still a little tacky. The book keeps sticking to the table.  Tongue

Actually, that was one of the most surprising things about my projects, I got no 'after-tack' at all. If it helps at all, I used the Matte finish ModPodge and used a coat to stick the paper down and then 1-2 coats on top to finish. Hope that helps!

I use that kind too, and the "after-tack" seems to go away after a week. Lol. I like the spray sealer made by Minwax-that stuff is odorless and it dries fast. I tried to find a picture of it but can't find one. That sealer works fine if you use it to seal something you Mod Podged.  Smiley
