Mad about Decoupage!

madaboutdecoupagememe

I love Decoupage.   I love Orange is the new Black too but that would be a whole , other blog post.

Decoupage for me is a way to express my creative side .   I  can’t draw a straight line and often get frustrated how what I see in my head looks on the page.   So discovering decoupage was a revelation, one I would love to share with you!

To me , decoupage is using any paper to decorate a surface, to  transform something tired or ugly into something beautiful .   The important thing is the finish – the image shouldn’t look ‘stuck on ‘  , there should be no halo of glue.  The highest compliment you can get is to be asked if it was hand painted .    I have used computer print outs,  napkins, tissue paper,  wrapping paper,  wallpaper and vintage maps .  All can give great effect if used on the right project, in the right way.

I hope to use this blog to share my love of decoupage, in all it’s forms.  To bring you examples of work I admire and to share tips and techniques for you to use in your work.

I also want to spotlight different products from my page http://www.decoupage.ie to show you how they should be used and give examples of the effects you can achieve.

I’d loved to know  what you would like me to cover first .  I’d also love to see your work .    So get in touch either here or by emailing liz@decoupage.ie.

Prepare to be addicted!
