  • How to make a collages. Harry Potter Film Quote Canvas - Step 1

    Rip up some pages of the book and lay them roughly over the canvas to gage how many you need.

    Apply glue over the top of the paper and lettering.
    Let this dry over night preferably.
    I applied a sprinkling of glitter around the lettering and applied a few more layers of PVA.
    Around the edges of the canvas I also glued and smoothed down to create a neat view from all angles.
