Decoupaged Rose Oval Plate..!




I love "China-Looking" dishes, and this plate is no exception...!
I simply found this plate at a Dollar Store;
Had an idea in my mind with an extracted rose from a sheet of wallpaper;
Then I decoupaged the vinyl roses on and gave it 3 coats of a
high-gloss spray....
Not bad for my first attemp;  Now I'll try with it's matching dishes.!

Just used;
* Decou-Page (Mod Podge)
* Sponge applicator
* Extracted rose pattern with exacto-knife from wallpaper book
* 3 coats of Krylon Gloss Top Coat and Protectant


Many Thanks for Taking a Peek...!

Decoupaged Glass Bowl..




This is a large green glass bowl that I just finished decoupaging;
Since altered arts is a fairly new hobby to me that I just took up, I, unfortunately forgot...Again..!
To take a "before" picture of it...!! lol!!!

Anyways;  It was a large octagon-shaped glass bowl that I decoupaged with some wrapping paper that I purchased at the Dollar Store..

I trimmed the top rim with soft pale yellow lace, blue roses, and a cloth-wire butterfly...!!

I added some old tulling into the bowl with some large faux blooms, and called it Done..!

Products Used;

*Wrapping paper
*Pale yellow lace
*Butterfly
*Blue roses
*Tulling
*Faux flowers

Although it was my very first decoupage project, I'm very happy with the way it turned out..!!

Do you remember this old green glass bowl Ash..?

Altered Box..




This is an altered box I just finished creating;
Unfortunately I forgot to take the "Before" picture of it, so I'm not able to show what it looked like "Before" I altered it..!! lol..!!
It was a large black box with a transparent window on the top that used to belong to my daughter;
I didn't like the "window" part as it was just plastic and scratched up, so I completely altered it in wallpaper and embellies...!
I used
*Wallpaper
* Faux flowers
*Ribbon
*Gems
*Buttons
*Bird & nest
*Pearls
*Broaches
The picture below is the box picture taken from the top view...

Ashley Chantel's Graduation..!



Remember this one Ashes...?

Your Graduation Portrait that I scrapped "Digitally", and then
Scrapped "Traditionally" for Wall Hanging..!

I first created the portrait "digitally";
Then I had the leftover material from her graduation gown -- which Ash quickly outgrew.!
I used the material of her grad gown, and scrapped it almost like a "pincushion" style..
Used beads and pearls, pearl pins, ribbon, floral, and butterfly...!!

The first picture is taken without flash;

The one below I took "with flash" to show greater detail....!!

Many Thanks for Taking a Peek...!
