My (completed) Decopatch Projects

These are the Decopatch projects I've completed so far, to give you a feel for the variety of things you can do and the effects you can have.

An Introduction to Decopatch

Two Christmases ago, my mum and I were sat in my aunt's living room as she showed us her latest addition to the room: some gorgeous model elephants. They were fairly small and lightweight, and covered in animal-print papers. I loved the style - the exotic feel to the colours and patterns translated well in the room - so I asked where she'd got them, only to discover that she'd made them. Of course, I wanted to know all about it, and she gave me a quick beginner's guide to something that has become one of my favourite crafts: Decopatch. She showed me her favourite papers, her brushes, the special 'Decopatch glue'* she'd bought online and some upcoming objects she was planning to revamp.

Welcome

It's official: craft is back, and honestly, I couldn't be happier about it.

Ever since I was a little girl I have enjoyed nothing more than admiring collections of buttons, fabrics, papers and other assorted crafty gems,
