Mom's Cafe

Tissue sample

Mom's Cafe plaque, combination between decoupage and folk art. I just painted some flowers, leaves n roof for the cafe n also the words. The rest, I used decoupage technique.... pasted the whole tissue on the surface of the chopping board.

Coins Box

Coins box made for my daughter. Decoupaged on the Pringles Bottle (Potato Chips Bottle). It was very difficult for me to paste the whole tissue on the surface of the bottle as I'm an amateur. So, what I just do.... I divided the tissue into 4 part and then paste the tissue part by part.

What is decoupage
According to Wikipedia, decoupage is the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper cutouts onto it in combination with special medium.

Basically,we have to cut out pictures; glue the pictures onto an object; and then cover the object and pictures with a few coats of glue/decoupage medium to protect it.
