Saturday Savers Autumn Leaves - Jane

A different take on the Autumn leaves with different shades that could be autumnal or be used all year around. Jane used different pieces of cardboard to create a beautiful desk tidy.
She used decomache for this project, which is a quick and easy way to cover cardboard or wood. We have a large selection of papers to choose from (click here to find them) .

 We all have cardboard tubes and boxes to hand

 Because I am covering them with a fairly thin paper, I have painted them with white acrylic paint

 I thought I would use the lovely decomache papers to cover the rolls etc., tear the papers into small pieces

Cover the tubes using decomache glue 

When dry, you could leave them now but I decided to try out the crackle coat so..... apply two coats of the base coat, making sure the coats dry before adding next one.  
Then apply top coat, quite thickly if you want lots of crackle!!!  When dry rub over acrylic paint, working into cracks and then remove excess

 To decorate I have decorated with Summer Border diecut and ribbon.  

First Edition Deco Mache papers - Leaf Repeat, Purple Stripes
Pebeo Acrylic Paint - Iridescent Violet Blue
Mirri Card -Silver
Memory Box die - Summer Border

See you tomorrow
