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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prepare to be addicted!
