All hail the Glow Cloud
Recently I did a WTNV craft swap, and this is one of the things I made for my partner. I used a small canvas, scrapbooking paper, modpodge, wooden cut outs, E6000, a plastic cactus, an empty pocket watch (found in the jewellery section of my local craft store), washi tape, string, a small piece of leather, number stickers, letter "thickers" (yes, that's actually what they're called!), a felt tip pen, and glow in the dark paint - to make the Glow Cloud really glow!
The cost of this project is really up to you - it cost me nothing to make since I have a very large stash, but if you were buying everything new it could end up costing quite a bit more. Hunt around your house and see what you have; it doesn't necessarily have to be a craft supply to end up in a mixed media project ~____^

  • How to decorate a canvas. Welcome To Night Vale Art Canvas - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut scrapbooking paper to size and use mod podge to attach to all sides of the canvas. For the house pattern paper, I used a ruler to rip it and create a more interesting edge than a straight cut would have been.

    Add some glasses pattern washi tape down the side of the canvas, overlapping to the bottom. This tape reminds me of a certain scientist. Use a felt tip pen to write a quote on some paper and glue it to the glass of the empty pocket watch. Thread string through the handle of the pocket watch and use E6000 glue and a small scrap of leather to attach it to the canvas.
