Crazy Crafting: Vintage WWII Decoupage Canvas

It seems everyone these days are obsessed with the Keep Calm and Carry On WWII British wartime signs, but I personally love the color and creativity of the victory garden and food economy marketing posters, both from the U.K. and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In times of economy, as now, the message behind them is perpetually relevant: don't waste, grow your own food, and be sustainable. Their charm, brightness and quirky, charming artwork were irresistible for this basic decoupage project. 

Technique: Images were resized and printed on a color laser printer. Using Modge Podge decoupage adhesive, soaked in water and affixed to a medium sized artist's canvas.  Polyurethane protective coating finish.
