Decoupaging does not take a lot of thought or planning, just wandering about the house finding things to add. I had so much fun I had to make two!
Starting with a canvas covered board that I got at a craft store, I decoupaged on a piece of light blue mulberry paper for coor and texture. In my scrapbooking supplies I found a sweet old-fashined lady who looked like she enjoyed birds.
What really inspired me to begin this was my collection of bird fabric that will someday become a quilt. After I cut out the birds I felt the collage was still lacking something......
After arranging and re-arranging I decoupaged the birds and papers on, I think about four coats of the glue, letting them dry at least 2 hours between each coat. Instructions are on the bottle.
I dug around in the Christmas wrapping supplies for ribbon which I combined to use for hanging the art. I tried to fasten the ribbon on with the staple gun but it was out of staples. Then my husband pointed out that I would have stapled the art to the table..Saved from a a crisis!
I did miss one step in the pictures and that was when I painted words in a translucent silver paint, one picture says Pretty Birds, the other says Love and has an X for a kiss of course.
Can't you just hear the birds chirping?
