I got inspired by helping out on decoupage project. I punched out 1 1/2 inch squares of various sheets of scrapbook paper in complementary shades.
Glued them on chip board with a gel medium and then coated them with a whitewash of gesso. I'm using them as the cover of a recipe scrapbook. The scrapbook is a wedding gift. I had the bride's family and friends give me their favorite recipes. I'll post more photos of the finished book.
I couldn't stop punching out squares so look at what I did...
They're not finished, but I love the subtle shades. They make me smile!
