Countdown to Christmas Number Three


And on to another exciting new something to look forward to!


Five Golden Rings Decoupage

Decoupage is not for the faint of heart.  The layering of bits and pieces of an image yields a very impressive looking card- but it’s not your run-of-the-mill, slap-it-together sort of project.  It takes a bit of time and effort, and it’s worth every moment of it.  When you see the final project, stunningly 3-D in effect, you forget the extra time spent with the detail scissors and craft knife and sigh in contentment.  It’s that wonderful.

As I was assembling these cards I remembered as a small child watching my Grandmother work on a similar project.  I remember how impressive it was to see the image’s layers create the effect of a dimensional image.  It was almost magical.  I had forgotten all about it, and these images leave me feeling a bit nostalgic anyway, but I have to admit that now they’re even closer to my heart.  I love that there are people who still take the time and effort to make a little work of art when they’re creating cards and paper crafts.  I love that they’re carrying on an art form that’s generations old – and I’m so glad to be a small part of that tradition now.
