so, this *could* go in paper crafts, but i'm treating it as more art, less craft..ANd it's on canvas. my new favourite medium is modge podge on canvas. i'm still having problems with bubbling (too much glue?) but like the rusticness of it! the images are from encyclopedias and art-punk-skate magazines. they evoke the economic history of canada! yaya!

I tend to have the problem with bubbling too. I think what helps is to slowly add the paper to the canvas/etc and then rub out the bubbles. This is really rad tho! I love collage work!!
