It's all about bags !!

Hi Ho everyone it's Rae here today to share what i have been up to with DECOUPAGE & CRAFT PASTE (Yep it's a fav - and I bet it will be yours too). I have been using it alot lately and if you check out my blog and even here on Helmar's blog you will find lots of things that I have done with this awesome product!!
Today I played with Paper bags, Tissue tape (washi tape), some Resin & Metal embellishments, Ink Sprays and a few other odds & ends and this is what I came up with.............
DECOUPAGE & CRAFT PASTE was the main glue used throughout my Paper Bag Mini Album. I did reach for PREMIUM CRAFT GLUE to secure down my Metal & Resin Embellies.
 I started out my applying Tissue Tape strips to the paper bags, these tended to lift a bit , as they arent that sticky. I coated the Tissue tape with DECOUPAGE & CRAFT PASTE, this sure did secure the tape into place and also gave it a lacquared look.

 Do you know how hard it is to photograph with one hand trying to hide those bitten finger nails from shot... here's proof as i even got the camera lense cover in the shot LOL !!!
The front and back covers started out as plain pieces of cardboard which I applied a generous amout of DECOUPAGE & CRAFT PASTE to then added lace, chippy, dew drops and metal embellies which i used PREMIUM CRAFT GLUE to adhere into place. I painted it all with gesso and used ink sprays to create some colours.
 I bounded it all together with some ribbon and DECOUPAGE & CRAFT PASTE

So there you have it A mini paper bag bound together with DECOUPAGE & CRAFT PASTE !! I can smell our dinner burning so i best be off for today. Make sure you get your DECOUPAGE & CRAFT PASTE on I would love to see what you come up with !!
Until next time take care and happy creating xx
