There has not been a let up recently on our decoupage sessions and we know why. There is a nearly irresistible charm about taking nice paper (or tissues for that matter), scissors, paint, a brush, and some glue. It brings us back to our early school years when cut and paste (lots of paste) was something we could do to our heart’s delight. The only difference is that when we apply the decoupage onto our surfaces, a little grown-up control and imagination help us make ordinary things extraordinary. And all this is done with our own hands.
Here are some decoupers who have taken the plunge into the craft.
Asma set some time aside from her busy schedule in Abu Dhabi to have her decoupage workshop. She wanted to upgrade the skills she had learned some time ago in Thailand. This time she wanted to learn how to use the crackle technique with her favorite decoupage material – serviettes. She chose her decoupage blank and sat down to crackle and cut and created this box like a pink dream.
Such a wonderful job! Having no two sides alike makes her box hold surprises for each direction you look at it.
Suchi had likewise finally decided to learn the skills she needed to use her collection of paper and other materials. She first chose decoupage and learned the techniques she needed to create her own unique objects.
The script background for the tissue and light blue paint made her box look very shabby chic!
Nada came to buy punches for her daughter only to have her eye caught on our decoupage project samples. She loves to use her hands to create things and did not think twice about booking her decoupage session with us.
She wanted to learn how to get a collage look for her decoupaged tray and was able to create a tray that brings to mind summer parties by the pool or in the garden with the kids running through the sprinklers.
Finally, here’s a sneak peek for the next project our one or our regular decoupers, Angie. She’s taken Graphic45’s French Country papers and an old Ikea kitchen table. We can’t wait to see how the finished project turns out!
Don’t all these terrific projects make you want to give in to the temptation of paper, glue, and scissors? Want to see more? Have a look in our Facebook album. Learn about our course here and set your date for a class now!
