Shabby Chic Gift Idea - Decoupage On Wood

  An upcoming wedding prompted me to look for a dress. Never mind that I have several to choose from, fashion changes and taste does as well.
I will never tire of the rose and of roses, however. I have quite a few in my steadily growing napkin collection.
The beginnings of my efforts were not easy, as I was not familiar with the technique or the materials used. I was however quite proud of the final effect.
If I recall correctly this is my first decoupage picture frame done with the napkin technique.
You can admire the results yourself.

  The frame was finished with a velvet ribbon and a matte acrylic lacquer with a delicate tint around the edges of the frame - shabby chic style.

  In this piece I also first experienced working with a glue gun.
  I think the picture frame would make a lovely wedding souvenir. 

Returning to my dress - guess what I found in my closet .... a black and white dress with roses. Well, better late than never.

Here are "rosey" things from my favourite shops.
