Weekly Photo Challenge BLUR Flower Decoupage

Weekly Photo Challenge BLUR https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/blur/

I have a new job so I am so behind on my blog, so sorry, but I managed to make this decoupage notebook this weekend, it did not turn out perfect but…

Hello and Welcome to ThriftyCreations by Jackie Paulson © 2015

This is my first week project and it is April 1st 2015. My goal is to create

One project a week using thrifty finds and creating something beautiful.

What I did for my first project was a decoupage hard covered book. The book

Was found for .88 cents at a community thrift store, it was old and has

Library stamps on the front and back and inside the cover and the back

Cover. So, what I did was painted the cover inside and out front and back

With Kiltz paint bought for 8.00 at Ace a Hardware Store. It’s a great

Primer for all sorts of house projects! Then I picked out my decoupage

Paper I ordered off Amazon.com. Then I cut the paper to fit the book.

I have a handy craft cutter to make sure it’s even. I then placed decoupage

On the Paper on the front, worked my way to the spine and all the way around to

The back. Once that was dried, I worked on the inside and folded the outer

Pieces in like wrapping a gift. I did this to the front and back. I then decided to

Put pink on the front inside cover to cover the stamp markings and decoupage it

Down. Since I got a little impatient the back two pieces accidentally glued down on

The back cover on the inside, but I figured for a first project it was fine, looked

Great anyway! When I completed the look I wanted I then decoupage the entire

Book front, back, inside and when it dried here is the final project below. Tell me

What you think? If you don’t mind, tell me if you would want one?! I actually video

Tapped it and it did not turn out, so I hope to post my next project on YouTube!

Thanks from me to you! © 2015 Jackie Paulson
