Mini Book Store - decoupage project by Monika


 Hi all!
It's Monika here with my latest project. This time I've decided to decorate this mini books storage  using decoupage technique. These  mini books are perfect little gifts, keepsakes or mini albums. Can't wait to build my collection :)




For this project I've used Alchemy paper by Stamperia.



The storage comes in as a flat pack which helps you to decorate it easily! To start with I've primed all of the pieces with Decoart white gesso. Next I've cut my rice paper to the size and covered shelves and indside walls using Decoart decoupage glue. Then I've assembeled everything together using the same glue, and covered the outer walls. Using a make up sponge and Decoart fluid acrylics in raw umber I've darkened the edges and corners and I've added a cup marks and white paint splatters to give it an old, distressed look.

 I've also used Decoart ultra matte varnish to protect the surface.


When my pieces were drying I've prepared my resin embellishments and small greyboard hinges. These were painted with Decoart black gesso, then with Decoart antiquing cream in patina green, once dry I've wiped the excess with baby tissue and applied Decoart metallic lustre in gold rush all over to accent the textures.

 




Hope you've enjoyed this post. See you next time!

Monika

Wonderful design Monika - I have sent for items from Tando to do same - I love the Stamperia papers. You don't say where you get the embellishments from - resins owl - butterfly and circle - I have looked on line but can't find anything like it - can you give me the name of the supplier so I can buy some - many thanks.
