This shabby chic frame was created in the meantime making Easter Eggs. I miss Spring so much -this definitely affects my work. This is wooden frame- I distressed it, using a shabby chic technique and then decoupaged with this lovely napkin with snowdrops.
This lovely mirror I made for my friend as a wedding gift. I used a plain wooden mirror, painted with a cream acrylic paint and then I decoupaged the romantic paper napkin with roses. Finaly I covered it with few layers of varnish to shine and protect.
Today I am going to show you something different... yes, really, I make more than Easter Eggs…
So, today I am presenting this cute wooden set: matching hand mirror and hair brush. As usually, I painted it with a cream acrylic paint, and then I used a stamp with an old letter and butterflies motives. Finally I decoupaged my favourite rose motif on the back of both mirror and brush. (This is the same pattern I used here ))
In my opinion this set is very romantic, a little bit shabby chic and would look great on any dressing table.
Valentine's Day is coming and I decided to do something about it. So I have made this sweet, romantic lantern. I used glass lantern, handmade red rice paper, decorated with red hearts 4 (cut from paper napkins), I glued carefully everything (using Mod Podge ) and imposed a dimensional glaze to the hearts, which gave them a fantastic look. The lantern has got a sparkling effect by using an extra fine red glitter. It gives a beautiful warm glow when lit and creates romantic atmosphere.
update : if you like this tealight holder - I have just listed it on Folksy
Recently I have finished this charming golden egg. It is painted with a golden acrylic paint, decoupaged with lovely retro lady motif (using a Mod Podge of course) and decorated with golden dimensional paint. Wonderful effect of cracks on the lacquer I achieved using a two-component medium for cracks (by Italian company Stamperia)
Next Easter eggs. This time I show the golden egg with lovely tulips. This is a ceramic egg painted with golden acrylic paint. Tulip pattern has been carefully cut and glued with special decoupage glue. Background has been carefully painted with acrylic paints. Then the whole was covered with several layers of lacquer. The egg is decorated with a golden outliner (vintage gold)
How to make decoupage? I have been in love in decoupage for more then 3 years. All what I have learned, I learned from the Internet. Now I am going to show you a few tutorials that I have found by searching the internet. They were and still are a great inspiration for me.
This are small wooden Easter Eggs I made last year. I used Cath Kidston motif and crackle medium to decoupage. Crackle is a decorative “antique” finish that can transform an ordinary object into an “antique” and I am delighted with the results.
This blog is about my hobbies, passions and inspirations. I love the beautiful decorations in the home, particularly those that are handmade. They are unique in nature, adding originality and individuality in the home environment
Decoupage, especially Servietten Technique is a fantastic way of decorating, which I have been interested in for more than 3 years. I use paper napkins, beautiful papers, acrylic paints, and various types of preparations to give an antique appearance. I love distressed, retro, shabby chic, vintage style. Romantic, a little country, a little rustic look is what I like very
