Here I am, keeping my promise to post something new every week. This little box was a birthday present for a friend of mine. I was thinking of her red sandals when I chose the necklace and I also decided to use the poppy knowing how much she liked red.
The plain wooden box was varnished with a natural resin used for ancient furniture. I asked my grandma to do that for me (she has restored ancient furniture all her life). All I had to do was add the poppy image using the napkin decoupage technique. If you master the technique well enough, the images look like they had been painted directly on the object.
Am promis ca voi publica ceva nou pe blog in fiecare saptamana, deci iata ceva nou: Cutiuta aceasta a fost un cadou de ziua unei prietene. Am ales colierul rosu gandindu-ma la sandalele ei rosii. La fel si macul a fost ales datorita preferintei ei pentru rosu.
Cutia din lemn natur a fost lacuita cu selac (o rasina naturala flosita pentru lacuirea mobilei antice). Am rugat-o pe bunica sa faca asta, intrucat ea a reconditionat mobila antica toata viata. Am adaugat imaginea cu macul folosind tehnica decupajului, tehnica pe care daca o stapanesti bine imaginile par pictate direct pe obiect.
Some people work, then they go home to relax. I go to work to relax. Making invitations and other stationery is my escape from the real world and from everyday chores. It is my dream world. So come join me at least for a little while to design your dream invitations for that special day in your life.
