Here's a sample of some that survived the tech boom in our house.
At the time, I was "all decoupage, all the time" & hadn't discovered the crazy anything-goes world of mixed media & pastes & sprays. But now I have!
Here's a before of one of the new plates - BORing....
And hubby was amazed...oh ye of little faith... 😒
It took less than 30 min once I got going, drying in between steps & layers with a heat gun. I did a prep of clear gesso, then added crackle paste.
Then I added crackle paste through a brick wall stencil in various places. Then sprayed with Tattered Angels Baseboard Mist Paint. Next was painting on a combo of Tattered Angels Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist/Mercury Glass glaze & Adirondack Red Pepper spray, using a regular brush, water brush, and my wet finger to finish the effect.
I then told hubby "Imagine what I could do on the walls..." And I knew I was pushing it. 😃
Here's a couple for the dining room. The first one is simply black acrylic paint that I dabbed and swirled and left streaky, making texture for the Art Alchemy wax I was going to run my finger over. While drying the paint, I also put the heat gun close to get bubbles as well. Took less than 10 minutes!
This last one - just a couple minutes. I dabbed on wax through a stencil - that's it!
Anything can be done to leave your personal mark on any room. Use your papers, sprays, embellishments, pastes - nothing is off limits...unless you tell your hubby first. 😃
