  6. Lay canvases on a flat surface. Apply 7800 glue along the sides of the canvases that touch. Press canvases together and leave undisturbed until completely dry. To help hold together while drying, stack heavy books along edges of canvases. This will help to keep the canvases from shifting.
     

Heidi’s Designer Tip: If you don’t want to try your hand and hand-sketching designs on your canvas, children’s coloring books and simple clip art designs make great patterns for simple shapes such as these seaside images.
