done perfectly...

When decorating a home it may not be enough
to have all kinds of nice things, one
must also arrange them in a beautiful way.
I think these pictures and decorations
are all done perfectly...

& I love looking at them,

my kind of meditation...

Making decoupage is not something that can be done
in one afternoon, and even though I have been doing this for
16 years I am still learning and improving my techniques.
When I have finished decorating the objects, using copies,
silver-leafs, etc. (that's the fun part ;), the work that requires a
lot of patience's starts, because usually I will put 20-30 layers of
different materials on the item until I am satisfied with
the the results. But still I like doing decoupage,
and for me It's like my kind of meditation....

here I have finished decorating a glass bowl,
using copies that I have hand colored...

you can see how they are glued on the glass...

I have painted this one white and also
decorated it using silver-leafs...

now I "only" have to put several layers (20-30) of
different materials on the bowl, after that it
will be painted white and then waxed to give it smooth finish.
So still few weeks until it will be ready for use!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed
this introduction to decoupage.

The table...

Finding the "right" table for a room can sometimes
take a while, but finding it, and the room
will be just perfect...

These tables are all so beautiful and perfect ;)
