The Art of Decoupage

20 Jul , 2013  

Decoupage

Translated from French, “decoupage” means “to cut out”,  and the art of decoupage is consistent in the “the decoration of the surface of an object with paper cut-outs.” This process gives the cut-outs an appearance of depth and an impression that the pattern is actually painted on the object. Decoupage is a really funny way to decorate almost any object you can come up with. This art is mainly used on objects like small boxes, plates, vases, or candles. Nowadays, though, it is increasingly applied on furniture too, such as coffee tables, cabinets and even fridges etc. You can freshen up old furniture and mask scratches and signs of wear&tear.

hate cleaning and heat

It was then that I realized how much of a negative effect this change in temperature will have on our bodies.

We didn’t mind parking our car outside and we used all our creativity to transform the garage into something more useful – a studio for the garage band of my husband.
