Favorite Picture? Mod podge it.

I was checking out some blogs, as I usually do, last week and ran across a great idea, I thought. Here's the problem, I can't remember the blog I saw it on. It was a gal who had done a baseball room for her son and had mod podged a photo she took of Wrigley Field onto a board. Sound familiar? If so, let me know so I can give her proper credit.

This is my version of her project. My daughter is always taking pictures. I love that. I wanted to display some of them in a unique way, soooo...
I printed out the picture onto white cardstock. Cut a piece of pine board to be just a little bigger than the photo. Pounded the edges of the board with the hammer, then stained it with walnut stain. Mod podged the picture on the board like so...


Let dry and WaLa!



Can't you just imagine the possibilities? I will be doing this again.
