Despite all of my best intentions, I still really haven’t sunk my teeth into decoupage. This leather look decoupage technique could be applied to a variety of items, not just frames I’m sure. I’m thinking something along the lines of a whole desk set for an office, a set of coasters for the man cave, a set of placemats for the dining room table, etc.
I just love water-colours – the effects you can achieve and the bright or soft hues that come from the same palette.
It just so happens that I have a set of magnetic spice jars that I’ve never managed to use that looks as though it’ll be just perfect for this little project I found on I Still Love You. I’ll let you know how I go as I go along . . .
I have my cousin and her beautiful 6 month old wee boy staying with me at the moment, and one of his recent achievements is sitting up all by himself. Inevitably, with our polished ceramic tiles, that does tend to end in the occasional face-plant into the cushions that are strategically placed around him. Then I saw this fantastic bubble quilt over at Awaiting Ada and immediately sent it to my cousin to check out. This looks like a fabulous solution to the face-plant problem, and with the addition of a bit of non-slip material on the bottom, would be a great item in the “take baby anywhere & he’ll be comfortable” arsenal!
We were planning a bit of a craft day which we have, of course, run out of time for. But maybe next time she comes to stay . . .
This is just about the oldest item on my to-do list – I love this style. Whether it be these definitions for labels, or for a cushion cover, or even just on a canvas on the wall. So I was super excited to come across The Painted Hive and Kristine’s fabulous tutorial complete with free printables to create these gorgeous labels for yourself. Now if anyone has seen any more words/definitions around I’d love to know about it – I’d like to get a little collection going then hit a few projects all at once!
