Paper Mosaic

Have a lot of pretty bits and pieces of scrap paper, not ready to throw them out, but don't know what to do with it?

Well, then you'll going to like this idea! Why not make a paper mosaic?!
I't easy! You allready have the paper,
all you need is
white acrylic paint,
decoupage medium,

1. Get your paper ready

2. Paint your surface with white acrylic paint, cover it twice if needed.

3. Arrange your paper on the area you are working on. Then carefully lift each piece with tweezers, brush decoupage mediumon the back and replace it.
4.Brush coat of decoupage medium over the entire mosaic and allow to dry.Then add a coat of dimentional gloss medium to each paper piece. Be sure not to get gloss medium onto the "grout". Set aside to dry.

Doesn't this looks like pieces of brocken china?

This look will be a treasure on the cover of your scrap albums, pages and cards and a good way to use your scraps.

For the love of Doilies!

If you have a wedding shower, wedding party or ANYTHING related to wedding! Here is an awesome  and simple tutorial for you!
Let's make a Bride and Groom out... of Doilies!

So, before we begin, here is a list of things you'll need:
4 doilies
black paint
glue (of course!)
just a Small piece of organza (or some other flow piece of fabric for the veil)
So let's start with the bride. We are going to use 2  doilies.

Take one doily, and cut it in half:

From both sides make a cone, like so:

Place a small amount of glue, and glue one cone inside of the other.
Then take our uncut doily make the same cut as before in half then your half one cut again in half,  make it into 1/4th of a doily.

And cut of the plane part from the lacy one:

Glue ends together:

Then glue smaller cones to the large one. Voila! It starts to look like a dress!

Face of the bride you can make out of thin, long strip of paper rolled into a tight circle, add a piece of fabric, some embellishments of your choice - you're done with the bride!

Let's make a groom!
Before we begin, first of all we should paint doily black - unless your groom is matching with the bride ;)

 We shall do the same first 2 steps as with the bride "dress" and "sleeves"

But then we shall make PANTS for our handsome guy!

Then we shall add adorable face to the lucky guy a hat and a bow tie - all from the thin, long strip of paper in different colors.

And in just under 10 minutes you have made a miniature centerpieces for your party!

Just a hint:
Take away the veil-and our creation will transform into a Christmas or christening angel!
I enjoyed making them, I hope you will too!
