What is decoupage?

Decoupage is a decorative effect obtained by gluing shapes of paper or other material to a surface, then applying clear or varnish coats overtop. Paper or other material are reffering to serviette or any beautiful wrapping papers you can find.

My choice for decoupage is getting the specific decoupage paper,specially designed by the original artist.The first and third tray I used the same decoupage paper by the same artist, forgot her name. Noticed that a few lavender and leaves was added in my first tray to make it more lively and smoothly blend with the roses.
My 2nd tray is handpainted and designed by Annette Stevenson.
