Re-designing a picture frame and metal vase

I decoupaged this tray with tissue copies of script and a French Label.
 
 
I aged the parts of the frame that I did'nt decoupage. I dry-brushed the script on the inside of the frame with watered down gesso.
 
I inserted a French perfume label.
 
 
Now I am on the hunt for some cute handles to finish it off!
 
 
I love the patina of the inside of this metal vase, just the right amount of variation in color and rust!
 
 
Just a pity that this fabulous patina did'nt favour the outside of this vase.
 
I decoupaged this vase with French script and an image of a lady playing the violin. I bathed the lace in an acrylic wash and used it as a frame for the image. I also painted the base and the edge of the vase with a mix of acrylic paints and did some distressing!

  1. Beautiful pieces!! The script on the frame, was that printed on tissue paper and then applied with the watered down gesso?

  2. Hi Lauren, I applied the script on the frame with tissue podge. Its thinner than modge podge and does not tear the tissue paper like modge podge tend to do. I printed the script under the glass on normal paper, stuck it down with craft glue then dry brushed it with the watered down gesso.

    Have a beautiful day!:)
    Hugs
