My decoupage! (pic heavy)

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Weeeee! Well, i've pretty much finished my two jewellery boxes which are book shaped. This is my first attempt at decoupage, and i just borrowed some books today so i can improve my technique.

the b&w was my first attempt. so it's thicker and not as tidy. but i love the aged look on the top. the purple one is alot smoother and tidier. both need some touch ups but pretty much done.

inside

with pretty things in it

This little wardrobe i bought from Avon, it was purely white and you couldn't remove the drawers, which made it painful to get my jewellery out. Obviousely i have not finished it yet, but i wanted to show you half/half. I need to add another layer so please ignore the rough corners and patches.
side/back

front open

my pretty moveable cat earrings and ring dish

And i thought i'd add this, Tristan bought it for me a few days ago at the local market. It's a hair fork thingie carved out of wood, only cost $6au (also comes in handy to poke people who annoy me lol)



Im hoping tomorrow ill actually buy the proper cardboard jewellery boxes to decoupage over. I hope you guys like it it's my new thing to do in my free time as it takes alot of concentration the time passes really quick and i end up in bed after midnight lol.

Thanks guys. I forgot this picture. It was a late xmas present from my grandma. She gave it to me late because she didn't think i liked pink so she waited till i visited her months later. I dont wear pink, but i love old fashioned things, and i had no where to put my earrings.

I appreciate P&P but I adore Colin Firth. If he played more classical characters, I would know more about the classics

That is a very pretty earring holder. You have a sweet grandma
