Decoupage - Keepsake Box

10:54 am Tanvi 22 Comments

Hello, this is Tanvi & Welcome back!
Today I have a pictorial of a keepsake box showcasing the Flora Season Decoupage papers.
For the box I wanted to retain the shabby colors & look of this decoupage paper but at the same time alter the look completely. Did I succeed? Please let me know! 
Briefly here are the steps to create this gorgeous box.
Begin by carefully cutting the floral images.
Remove all the hardware from the box.
I selected chalk paints from my stash that coordinated well with the papers & painted the sides of the box.
Next trim the damask paper to the size of the lid & decoupage it. Let dry.
To enhance the shabby look I wanted to create a doily effect over this pattern. So I will use doilies as stencil.
I painted over the lid with dark red chalk paint.
Once done carefully lift the doilies & viola you have a beautiful doily pattern, gorgeous, isn't it! (Tip:Make sure to lift off the doily before the paint dries)
After this I decoupaged the floral motifs over the doily.
For the base I created bands of the two contrasting colors by, masking over the painted base.
Finished the box with 3 layers of varnish & light sanding between each layer.
Here are some closeups of the box - 
A creative start to 2019 for me......this is already my 3rd post 😊 & hoping to continue inspiring you all with the amazing new launches by Papericious.
Thanks for stopping by today & Happy Decoupaging!
Love,
