Hello My Dear Friends

Decoupage is an old know art wherein an object is decorated by gluing paper cutouts in combination with special paint effects and various decorative elements. It is done on various surfaces ranges from wood , glass , fabric , plastic and so on.
Papericious recently launched Decoupage papers ,Glue and chalk paints.The decoupage papers have Gorgeous motifs of butterflies and flowers, you can check out the entire collection here.

I Decoupaged a mobile cover and MDF box 
Have a look!!!!

For this box here i used my favorite Decoupage paper - Peacock Medley. 
Here is how i altered this box
Apply a base coat of white chalk paint on entire box. For a smooth surface sand the first layer of paint with sanding block and than apply second coat.
Using the Decoupage Glue apply the Decoupage paper - Peacock Medley on the top of the box , smoothing out the bubbles and leave it to dry.
For a washed paint effect inside the box , Mix Chalk paint -French Blue with glazing medium in a ration of 80 to 20 percent.
 Apply a layer of this paint mix on the base white paint with flat brush and wipe of with wet cloth for a washed effect.
 On the outer side of the box apply the paint mix (Chalk paint + glazing medium) with flat brush and using the texture tool create horizontal and vertical line. 

For the top - apply a thick layer of  glossy accent - crackle and leave it to dry overnight. 
For the cracks to appear apply a thin coat of brown acrylic color and wipe of immediately with baby wipe 

 Hope you will like my work for today and will try to make one.
