Decoupage Project: Door Hanger

I've posted this door hanger on WMC before but was told it wasn't clear. Just click on the image.

Took me only a few hours one night to complete it (the MDF already primed weeks before - waiting patiently for me to 'inspired'). I think the end result came out very nice hence why this design has become one of my favourites.

Decal Project: Candles

I'm pretty selective when it comes to decal design.

Flower Border

Happy Anniversary

These are the ones I did a couple of months back.
Candles are IKEA's (come in 4s), the cream candle platter is a good bargain from TESCO.

Decoupage Project: Giant Cup

My one and only decoupaged cup, bought at a RM2 shop.

This is Rosamond with on Jo Sonja's purple background. It marks my first attempt at shading - I believe it has improves a lot since then.

The gold line at the mouth is by Ziggy Paint Marker (which I do not recommend, at all - others might differ). I've switched to UNI brand.

Decoupage Project: Octagon Stationery Holder

I did this holder a couple of weeks ago. Those are some of my paint markers.

Using Cath Kidston Floral Gingham in blue, I decided not to use the checkered part. I shaded the background with Jo Sonja's blue diluted with retarder instead. I've also added a very thin gold line at the holder's top and base.

Decoupage Project: Baby Hanger

My first baby hanger.

I decided to make it very simple with a single rose and shaded with a hint of pink.

To those who asked, the hanger is 20cm end to end, and 10cm high (minus the hook).

Decoupage Project: MDF Holder

I like this MDF holder cos of its scallop design. What can it hold? Napkins, bills, letters, even glass coasters.

The red base is not included (It's actually one of my son's BYGA toy from IKEA that fits nicely). Definitely for aesthetic purpose only.



It doesn't matter which side it's facing, still as pretty, I think.

The design is Cath Kidston's Classic Rose.
Background colour is a mix of Plaid's Folk Art acryclic paint in Ivory White and a drop (maybe 2) of Baby Pink. The palest shade of pink I've ever made.

It still needs another 2 coats of varnish :-)

Decoupage Project: Victoria on canvas

Took me a couple of days to decide over which lace to use. I opted for the simple white over metalic silver and gold. It looks softer and more feminine.

Decoupage Project: Purple Pansy Picture Frame

One of my favourite picture frames.

Decoupage Project: Clothes Hanger

I started this project with the intention to make it more masculine(?) so there's no flower sans one, which I add at the very last minute (really can't help it). But it does complete the overall look, I think.

The soft green background was achieved by mixing a tiny drop of Jo Sonja's Green with white gesso. The napkin is IHR's Late Summer Fruits.

Decoupage Serviette - Toile Garden

According to Wikipedia, toile (pronunciation: \ˈtwäl\ ) is a French word for cloth or web.

It never caught my fancy (cos I always prefer damask) until I saw some antique china collection in a magazine.

Toile Garden

Price: RM2.50 per piece

Decoupage Serviette - Country Kitchen

Country Kitchen

I really love the rose bit on this napkin - it's so shabby. In fact, I've butchered a couple of pieces just to create this pair for WMC's 3rd Exchange Gift :-P

Before - plain white background


Final treatment - a bit of pink shading using Plaid's Folk Art Baby Pink and 2 layers of varnish to seal it off.

Decoupage Serviette - Spring Meadow

I used to have a piece of this napkin but it was in yellow. The one available now is with green-ish background.

Spring Meadow - Close up

This is the actual design. It is perfect to create a one piece project such as this can.

Decoupage Serviette - Flowers part 2

I bought this napkin on a whim cos it was on discount. Only then I realized that IT IS quite pretty. Not a bad choice at all..

Flower Stripe

This design was actually requested by a friend. Luckily, I found it for her. Quite nice.

Definitely one of my favourite! I've done quite a lot of project with this design.

Decoupage Project - Have A Rosy Day!

This project marked 2 firsts for me. It's a fridge magnet and the wordings was done without any template (not so bad, ehhh?). It was a last minute addition to my project for WMC's 3rd Exchange Gift.

Initially it has a plain soft pink background. But after much deliberation, I decided to add the white dots.

I'm glad the recipient is happy with it.

Have A Rosy Day
Size: 5cm (D), 2mm thick
Material: MDF
Wording: Americana's Burnt Umber
Design: Rosabelle using sealer

Background: Plaid's Folk Art Baby Pink + White Gesso. Plaid's Folk Art Ivory White to create the dots.

How to make a fridge magnet?
Just stick the magnet at the back of decoupage and voila! it's an FM.
For this project, I cut 2 magnet strips, each about 2 cm long. The existing adhesive is not strong enough so I used double sided tapes to stick them. Most stationery shops do (usually) sell the magnet (in various shapes) by packet.

Decoupage Project - Wood Frame

One of my earliest decoupage project was on an old wood frame.
It's easy since the surface is (usually) flat and even. I usually use IKEA's untreated RAM frame. These are some of the frames I made.

Design: NA with diluted varnish.
This napkin was included in the decoupage kit purchased in 2007.

Design: Blue Damask using diluted varnish

Design: Collete using diluted varnish
Background: Jo Sonja Green + Titanium White

I made this frame for my first Decoupage Exchange Gift at WMC Forum last year.

Decoupage Project - Oval Signage

The wordings design on this signage was inspired by a condo promo brochure. Took me only a day to complete it since the oval wood was already primed.

Home Sweet Home
Size: 9.5cm X 14cm
Wording: Deco Color Paint Marker - Brown
Napkin: Rosabelle using Mod Podge Paper
Shading: JoSonja Green + Waterclear Retarder
