I thought I'd introduce you to my latest hobby which as you may have guessed from the title is Decopatching! Years ago a new art shop opened in my nearest town and outside they always have a giant collaged giraffe, much similar to this one, ever since I've been intrigued. The other week I was browsing Hobbycraft and finally found out what the technique was! I bought a starter kit (which I'll blog about at some point) and gave that a go. Hooked on it, this happened...!
|I bought some pretty paper and a pot of the special Decopatch glue.|
|And a rather ugly plastic tray organiser.|
|Ripped up into small pieces|
|Used the glue to stick down the pieces of paper and put a layer of glue over the top to seal it in|
|After several hours of work!|
|Finished result :)|
Have you Decopatched anything before?
P.s. Check out my new little sub heading things I made in the right hand column (how swish am I?! Lol)
