SUPPLIES: 12x12 wrapped cotton canvas, black felt tip marker to draw mug design (mistakes don't matter).
Jar of matt or matte medium to adhere torn pieces, one craft brush, and a table to lay canvas flat. Decide if you want a warm or cool colored mug; I like hot colors so this'll be mostly oranges, yellows, pinks, and reds with a few cool accents for balance
Left mug edge was a natural line found in an ad; these are good if you can find lines or curves with a good color on other side
Final step! I added three red strawberries to right side of saucer and one on its left. Finished! Now to coat with several, maybe 5 brushed on gloss medium varnish layers for shine and to protect/seal the collage. Sign with black permanent marker, add wire and hooks to the back and it is ready to hang in someone's kitchen!
