Mod Podge and Chick Peas

We spent the day with our friend Alicia...

We had fun experimenting with Mod Podge, cast off canvasses and neat Scripture verses and quotes that Cilicia had printed at our local print shop. While we waited for our amazing humble pieces of art to dry, we were adventurous and made chocolate cake using chick peas, coffee, chocolate and a little vanilla. A.m.a.z.i.n.g.!

Alicia, may God bless you and Wes as you seek Him...



  1. Looks beautiful!! Will this be a new etsy item?

  2. Becky,
    This was something we decided to try on a whim...just for fun:) At this point I don't see them going on our shop, but you just never know with us;) They really did turn out beautiful!

  3. Could you please tell me where you got the gorgeous printables to do this craft? Can I find them for free?Especially the "blessed, chosen, adopted" one. Thank you so much. Great job! My daughter and I have really been blessed by your family's blog. We read some each day in the archives. : )

    1. Hello "fivetolove",
      So glad you are enjoying our family blog...
      I looked for the file, hoping I had saved the pictures we used for the projects, but unfortunately I didn't find the file. So sorry about that! I saved the pictures from Pinterest, turned them black&white, then had them printed. We used Publisher to arrange multiple pictures on a 24x36 page (that way we were able to have custom sizes for the canvases we had), and had it printed on the blueprint machine at our Staples (Office Depot can do it too) for only $3.80. Excellent print and quality for such a price.
      First apply the Mod Podge one direction, than apply the next layer if glue in an entirely different helps give the finished project the "canvas look". :)
      I really hope this helps, there are so many projects that we have done with this same technique of pictures and Mod Podge!
