Beatrix Potter Tags - Last chance.../SOLD!

I made these tags with Beatrix Potter illustrations that I hand cut to give them an irregular edge, then glued them on a coordinate cardstock and then on a tag that I inked and distress; I finished them by punching a pretty edge and attached a satin ribbon.
They are 2.4" x 4" (6 x 10cm) .
I've got a lot of visits and hearts on them but I as nobody bought them yet, I decided to put them on sale ... This is the last chance that you can get them!:

Give them a second life!

With the new decoupage technique I will show you how to give a second life to your old objects!...

I am sure you'll find some old things that you don't want anymore because you don't like them anymore but why don't give them a second life!...

I found this little terra cotta pot in my basement, all dusty and not very appealing :

Terra cotta is my favorite surface so it was not hard for me to think of a new decoration for it!...

What you have to do:
- First, clean and sand your object
- Then paint the surface in white that you will decoupage on and eventually use another color around;
Here I painted in pure bronze the inside of it :
- Then cut your paper to fit the area where you will glue it;
I prefer very thin paper (like paper napkins,rice paper...) because it gives a smoother finish:

- When your paint is all dry and your paper is ready; glue them gently and add another layer of glue (I use modpodge) on top:

I also used a little plastic pot to help it to dry without gluing it on my table!
Let it dry...
At this point I have a little secret to give you!: If you have wrinkles or bubbles you can iron your project on low temperature that you will protect with a parchment paper... and it's magic no more wrinkles, you'll get a very smooth surface, ready to varnish :

I like to put 2 to 3 layers of varnish to a better protection and better finish.

and voila!:

My new fall decoration!...

Artist Feature

Last Sunday, my son received a fabulous gift from JulieChristie;

I would like to Thanks her again and I'll be glad that you'll visit her shop; You will discover such wonderful pieces...

Here is what my son wrote about his marble!:

Marbles – you may think these are children's toys but JulieChristie turns them into wonderful decorative pieces of art.
The Vortex Marble is especially beautiful with a cool blue theme great for relaxing, and once you peer into the centre of the marble it's like looking out into space at another galaxy, with a wonderful sense of depth, it's very easy to get lost in it's beauty. On the flip side are swirling blues playing off each other in a harmonious fashion which is reminiscent of the wild and strange oceans.
The Vortex Marble is fantastic because it offers the sights and mysteries of Space Above, and the Oceans Below, and it will always be right where you choose to put it.
Thank you Julie ;)
