Hi and thanks for joining in on the Decoupage challenge from http://creationsbygillm.blogspot.com/
Today I have for you a mini notebook decoupaged with homemade paper from a local paper company which contains the lilac flowers you see in the background. I brushed my adhesive medium with a sponge applicator allowing to completely dry, then I applied my paper while smoothing out any bubbles which may have appeared. I sponged the edge of the mini book with antiquing stain, applied my edge made with a MS punch front and back, then finished it off by stamping my sentiment. Flowers were made with a scalloped punch and twirl cut. A guilling needle was used to circle my paper to create my desired shape for the flower. The background "leaves" are scraps I had from another project.
I truly love how this came out. It was simple, looks elegant and would make a wonderful gift for someone special!
Thanks again for stopping by and visiting my blog. Happy comments are welcome!
