completed project as Guest Designer for
Emily the owner kindly sent me her fabulous August
Trinket Parlour Box crammed with lovely lace, flowers, resin
pieces, charms, Feathers, ribbon, etc etc.
I used just a few of the items for my first project, I had
a small canvas which I chose to decorate.
Here are just a few of the items from the delicious box.
I started prepping for the canvas by cutting the 2 ply napkin to the
size I required, I wanted it to cover the sides of the canvas. I removed the bottom layer and made my own decoupage glue
by adding 1 teaspoon of water and 3 teaspoons of standard
all purpose glue, mixing well and covering the entire canvas.
I added the napkin using my heat gun to dry it, I then
added my watered down glue all over the surface and once
again used my heat gun to dry it off. Once dry I distressed
the edges with Crushed Corduroy ink using a sponge applicator.
It was just a case of distressing the resin cherubs,
flowers, cutting the lace to size and placing it all onto
the canvas. Hey Presto a quick and easy project
that will make a sweet gift for someone special.
Thank you so much for popping in to visit. I'll be back
with another project for The Trinket Parlour next week.
