Magazine Holder - Layered Decoupage Technique

Hello My Crafty Friends.......

This is Arpita here today,I want to share with u all a very easy and a fun project today.I was planning to do this technique for a while now and when i saw the raw base of this magazine holder,I knew this is what I wanted to do,so here it is.... layered decoupage technique on this beautiful magazine holder.Let me share some pictures and simultaneously share the steps on how I did.  


    Steps :
1. Prepare your base by sanding to get a smooth surface.

2. I painted the inside with a color coordinating to my tisssue.I prefer to do my paintings first so i dont have to worry of getting any paint on my work.

3. Next I covered the base with decoupaging some magazine sheets.

4.Choose a tissue you want to use, cut out the pattern from the tissue with wetting your brush a little,that way its easy to tear the tissue.

5 Once you have your tissue pattern.decoupage the tissue on to surface you have prepared.The script is see through the tissue print and its creates a very interesting look to your project..

6.Apply a coat of mod podge to seal your project and then give it a coat of varnish to protect your             work. Remember to give a gap of atleast 1-2 hours between each coat.

7. To add some interest and make it fun, I stuck a hand written sentiment and added a few embellishments.

     Now lets take a look at the completed project...

Material used :
Magazine Holder - The Element Craft Studio
Rest of the embelishments  like the charms,flowers and scallop mdf cut out for the sentiment is from my stash

Thank you for visiting
see you soon with another interesting project,till then.....

        Hello my dear lovely folks, Shreya here!! 

        A very warm welcome to all!

"The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that's what you've given me. That's what I'd hoped to give you forever." 

Love is in the air!! It's Valentines coming and so here i am with yet another lovely creation themed on love. 
     This time I have designed a love cube box using TECS pattern paper collection " Hugs & Kisses " and Craftyscrappers "Be Mine" stamp to add to its beauty.

 The "Hugs & Kisses" paper pack gives a romantic feeling and addition of the Craftyscrappers stamp make it amazingly cute. This particular stamp set has become such a favourite of mine that i can't just stop using it.

I simply enjoyed making this !! Sharing some more pictures for the same.

D    Do not forget to get this amazing stamp set along with these beautiful papers to add to your   lovely craft room.           
       Hope you loved it as much as I do !!
