Etsy seller Tools

For my follow friday I thought about sharing these nice tools for Esty seller;
Most of you will know them but I hope to share them with new Etsy sellers :

- Craftopolis will show you if you are actually in treasury; gives a clock treasury where you know when the treasury will open; tells you if you are in any gift guide and an other new tools that tells you how many hearts you win each days (+ advertisement).

Craftcult it's all about hearts : Who hearts your shop ; who hearts and who many hearts you get by items and features tells you if you are featured in any front page, storque or gift guides.

Etsywiki You always wanted to know what those acronyms stand for ? Pif, ACEO, BFSC ect... this is a place to go and everything you'll know !

Yaami tools to promote, advertise and more ; my favorite is the little heart gadget (look on the right side of my site)

- Socialmention tells you who is talking about you ; who blogged you ...

- Etsy fee calculator all is in the title !...

if you have any more suggestion site, please leave them in the comments...

New decoupage

Some of my clients and followers are amazed by how my items look like paintings;

this plaque is on sale in my etsy shop (clic on it)

It's one of the reason we call it New decoupage technique ...

This technique is based on the use of very thin paper like paper napkins, tissue paper, rice paper and other very thin papers;
(find amazing paper napkins in my second shop :

of course these papers are very fragile and delicate and become even more fragile when they are in contact with the glue; so they winkle a bit but we have few technique to eliminate those winkles;

The first one is to gently rub on the winkle, the second is to heat it (when it's dry, with a low temperature iron) ; with this secret, you'll get a perfect 'collage' ;

Then it's a good thing to apply several coats of varnish (water base varnish is better).
Fell free to visit my other blog with a gallery of my artwork :

here is the final card :
