Decoupage

A try at decoupage:
I found it really relaxing and I might have a go at some more!

So beautiful, Helena! The blue one looks like a Delft tile. Can you please put a tutorial online? :)

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Dearest Helena! Thank you ever so kindly for the MYSTIC MOG card. it is a work of wonderment from your desk to my cozy cottage. I will treasure it. Every little glimmery detail and tiny cut has been carefully noticed by us. How do we deserve a friend such as you? Miss Peach is beside herself over the card you included with a little ginger fur ball on the skirt tails of the little maiden. Such an enchanting stamp...we love it! I am sure Lorianna would love that stamp also. I wish for the three of us to gather in some wonderful seaside spot for a week of girlfriending and stamping. Ahhh purrrrchance to dream...that is what life is all about isn't it.
Your new creations are just stunning...little confections of creative comfort.
All our love...the cozy cottage crew

These are very pretty. They seem special with all the layers. Makes me think of cards my dad used to buy for my mom on Valentines day.

Gorgeous Helena.

Hi Helena, they are very elegant. I didn't like decoupage, I would need much more patience than I have got! LOL. I like the way you have made them in a sort of old worlde style with the ribbons too, very original :D

Thanks, everyone!
They were so relaing to do. I love splurting big dollops of silicone glue! I went to the craft shop for some more medallion shapes today to make some more but they didn't have any :( I might have a look online this evening!

How did you do that Helena? They are so beautiful! Maybe you could give a tutorial of how to decoupage? :) You would have all of us who love you watching. I have been stuck with my stamps of late. I need some more ideas.
Now, I'm off to admire your Fluffy and comment there too!
hugs,
Lorianna
p.s. I wish we could get together with Miss Peach's Mommy. That would be so lovely!
