I started with a 24" x 24" piece of Masonite I had hanging around my started-but-not-finished-artwork stash. After priming the board I collaged some ripped computer paper onto it with Mod Podge. (I actually printed out the Wiki article on Arnold Schwarzenegger since the hubby is quite a fan. The thought was that the text would peak through in the end product. Though this didn't end up working out as I had hoped, it's still kinda cool that there's more to the collage aspect than just random paper.) After the Mod Podge dried I worked some white paint into the gaps and lightly over the text.

|Please don't mind the poop-like paint blob. The white oval is the edge of the foam roller.|
soda tab hanging system to hang it on the wall. I'll let you know how that works out!
