Lampshade using TECS Decoupage Papers

Hello my crafty friends......

It's me,Arpita here on the blog today....with a simple yet a beautiful project.I received this gorgeous lampshade base by THE ELEMENT CRAFT STUDIO and fell in love with this piece instantly,its so beautifully designed and conceptualized. I also received their recently launched decoupaged papers,which are 100 gsm papers with great prints,lovely colors and has a great texture,I absolutely loved working with them.So here is what I made.....


1 .I roughly cut the decoupage paper to size of the panels adhered them using modpodge one panel at a time,sanded the extra paper..once done with all the panels I applied a coat of modpodge and 2 coats of varnish.

2 .Next was to paint the stand,i used lilac chalk paint...applied 2 coats of the chalk paint and to add some interest to the stand i decided to do some gilding using a silver leaf and did some stenciling using modelling paste on the base of the stand.

3. Finished it by adding a lace trim and some beads to the top part of the lampshade.
