Last weekend I reserved some time for crafts and goodies.
I got together with a friend who wanted me to make her a new kitchen towels hanger and wanted to find out a thing or two about decoupage. We had some coffee and chocolate and then we started…We actually worked together on the hanger: sanding, painting, preparing the tissue, gluing, blow drying and finishing with a matte varnish spray.
As it went quite well, we decided we’d decorate a journal cover also (yellow of course, as she is obsessed with this color). Unfortunately, this was the first time I used a really big area of tissue, so I got some wrinkles, but I think it’s OK for a first. We added a detail from a tissue in similar colors, we added some black ribbon and finished the look with some matte finish spray.
Then I made some good, comfort food: some mussels chowder and Quiche. No recipe today, just some phone shots of the crisp buttery pie (silly me, I misplaced my camera again).
