A few months ago, as I was browsing the aisles of one of my favourite stores, Dollarama, I came across a collection of beautiful 3D butterfly stickers. My first thought was to buy a pack for my nephew, which I did. However, my second thought was to make something amazing with them!
I should point out that I don't normally have the ability to come up with DIY ideas on the spot. It usually takes a bit of time for a project to evolve and come to life in my head — but not this one. As soon as I bought those butterfly stickers, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them.
To find out what my idea was, scroll through the quick and easy tutorial I put together below.

Wooden artist's panel
Before you do anything, make sure the wooden artist's panel fits inside the picture frame you're choosing to work with, like so.
I found my frame at Home Sense on a clearance rack. The back stand wasn't intact, but I didn't care about that because I wasn't going to need it.
Once you have the perfect frame + panel combo, cover the border of your artist's panel with painter's tape. Using a foam brush, slather the interior of the panel with acrylic paint in the colour of your choosing. I really wanted the colours from my stickers to stand out, so I decided to work with black paint.
