CRAFT Challenge #297 Technique Challenge Decoupage

Hi, guys! I hope you're all keeping well! My Olde Manne and I have just spent 3 days in Stratford upon Avon, where we saw a performance of 'Love's Labour's Lost' which was so good and so funny! It's amazing that Shakespeare's jokes are still funny 400 years after he wrote them! On February 11th there is going to be a live showing of the play in cinemas - not just in the UK but in other countries, too! Check it out!

Now back to this week's C.R.A.F.T Challenge and it's a technique: Decoupage That's the technique of cutting out and layering your image to give a 3D effect, not the version that layers cut-outs in a collage-effect on an item like a tray or box. Here's a description by Christina Griffiths Decoupage

I have used a cute Flower Pot image from Sunflowerfield Designs which was ideal for decoupaging!


Here's a sideways view to give a better idea of the layering


I coloured each layer with Promarkers and filled the centre with orange Stickles. I used Pinflair glue to stick the layers together. The sentiment is by Hero Arts from the Year Round Sentiments stamp set. The sequin flower is from stash.

Our lovely sponsors are:

Fitztown



and Sunflowerfield Designs


Go and see the clever decoupaging that my teamies have made, they will inspire you!

Thanks for looking!

Oooh what a pretty sunflower and fab CAS layout too, I love it!
Glad to hear you enjoyed Stratford-on-Avon ... I was traumatised at school by Shakespeare (dissecting sentences and learning massive texts by heart) and I'm afraid I never discovered a love for his work :( I'll have to give him another go sometime!
