Wipe dust off frame with a slightly damp cloth; sand rough spots or edges if needed. Paint the front and sides black; dry.
Tear out two coloring book pages of your choice. Place right side down. Trace frame on reverse side of both coloring page sheets. Carefully cut out frame shapes.
Stack both frame shapes with edges lined up along grid on cutting mat. Using the ruler and knife, cut sections, as shown, cutting through both layers at the same time. Cut a 1/4” strip out between sections.
Alternating patterns, place sections on the frame until pleased with the arrangement. Cut additional sections or spacing strips if desired.
Choosing colors based on your photo, color the sections in as desired. Place sections on the frame to check color balance as you go.
Working in one section, brush Gloss Mod Podge onto the frame. Apply Mod Podge to the back of one colored section; position, press and attach to the frame.
Smooth out bubbles with an old credit card or squeegee, where needed.
Continue with these steps until all the sections have been attached to the frame.
Brush a light coat of Gloss Mod Podge over entire frame; dry. Brush one or two light coats of Super Gloss Mod Podge over entire frame; dry.
