Wall Decor with decoupage papers

Namaste Friends!!

Kriti here today...and I have a quick tutorial for a beautiful Wall D├ęcor that I had made using Papericious Decoupage Papers, Chalk Paints, Crackle Paste, Decoupage Glue, White Gesso, Cardstocks and Paper Pack Blush.

Have a look...


Let's see how I have created this..

I have collected few things like chipboard, cardstock, glue, white gesso, chalk paint, acrylic paint, crackle paste, decoupage papers, decoupage glue and some embellishments.

First cut the chipboard of size 10" x 8" for the base and for the frame cut four pieces of chipboard of size 10" x 1.5" and four pieces of 5" x 1.5". Paste these rectangular pieces over the base to make the frame( We have to paste 2 rectangle chipboards on each side to get the depth for the frame). And then cover the whole frame with white gesso.




Now, cover the whole base using Country Grey Chalk Paint.




Next mix the pink acrylic paint with white crackle paste and apply all over it.




Now its the time to adhere my decoupage paper, so I have cut few flowers from the Pretty Peonies Decoupage Papers and adhere them with the help of decoupage glue. And then put a beautiful sheet from my favourite collection Blush onto the base.




After that I had embellished it with some flowers, doilies, die-cuts and a sentiment from Tim- Holtz wood mounted stamp. And voila...its ready

















I hope you have like this project and you will try this out.

Altered Embroidery hoops with Decoupage Papers

Namaste Friends!!

This is Kriti, I am here today with a very different project using Papericious newly launched Decoupage Papers. These papers are so beautiful, it has the most gorgeous colours and patterns. Anyone will fall in love with these.

Now, as you all know I am not a decoupage person, so I made a little different thing, tried something new with these beautiful papers.

I followed one mantra " Never be afraid to try something new, because life gets boring when you stay within the limits of what you already know". If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.

So, I altered some embroidery hoops with these papers and I love how they turned out.

Have a look!





Some close- up pics








To make these I picked three embroidery hoops of different sizes. Then coated them with Papericious white gesso, after that applied Papericious Bracket Green Chalk paint with some Papericious white crackle paste( I am in love with this product).

Now selected my favourite papers from the collection. Trace them out of the size of the hoop and cut them according to it( I had also cut three circles of a cardstock too to paste these decoupage papers over it, so that they become sturdy to hold the embellishments).

Used Papericious Soft Gloss gel to paste the papers with hoop.

Now decorate each of the hoop and get creative with it. I kept it simple with less embellishments because papers were beautiful. These don't let me to add more embellishments.

It was so much fun to make these and I am loving the final result.

Diwali Gifts -- Style it up (Step by Step Tutorial)

Namaste Friends!!

This is Kriti and today I am here with a tutorial using Papericious Diwali Release.

I have created four mixed media panels using Papericious Diwali chipboards and their newly launched art mediums Gesso, soft gel, crackle medium and modelling paste. These can be framed and can be given as a gift too.



Let's see how I have created this..

Firstly I have collected few things like chipboard, gauge, ribbon, cord, gesso, soft gel, modelling paste, crackle paste, few acrylic colours, sparkle and Papericious chippies.

First cut the chipboard into four pieces of size 6" x 4.5" and apply Papericious soft gloss gel.


 Coat the chippies with white gesso


 Adhere the gauge with soft gel


Next adhere the cord and ribbon.




 Cover the entire surface with white gesso


Next I have applied Papericious crackle paste at few places. Using modelling paste and stencil made few bubbles also and at some places applied modelling paste and tapped it with palette knife to make few more interesting textures.

After that arranged the chippies.


 I have coloured the chippies with brown acrylic paint and put some sparkle over it to give some more festive touch. And coloured these four panels with different shades and sprayed some water so that the colour can flow.

Lastly arranged all the chippies over these panels.

These are some final pics.



 You can see how perfect these crackles are





Now moving onto another project which I have made using Papericious Happy Diwali Limited edition paper pack.

For this I have recycled two boxes. I have applied Bracket green, Soft Rock and French Blue Chalk paints first on the edges and then adhered the paper with soft gloss gel over the boxes and after that I have used Papericious decoupage glue to cover the entire surface to increase its life.

And here is the project








I hope you have liked these projects and you will try these out. Very simple and easy to make yet elegant.
