‘Live Every Moment’ Decoupage Tray

Hello lovelies. Lisa here with my newest creation for the Itsy Bitsy Design Team.

For this project I kept my focus on the gorgeous Itsy Bitsy decoupage papers. The hardest part is choosing which of the papers to use as there are so many different designs and they are all stunning!!

I chose the Timeless Beauty decoupage papers. There are 4 A4 sheets in the pack with two designs and two sheets of each design.

I also wanted to use the Little Birdie “Live Every Moment” Primed Chipboard and I thought the decoupage sheet with the clocks would match well.

So, here is a step by step of what I did.

First, I chose a substrate that I wanted to work on which was a MDF wooden tray with side handles It is just less than A4 in size, and I it painted with the White Mixed Media 2 in 1 Modelling Paste and Gesso.

I added some texture using Grainy Texture Paste with the mixed media Net stencil along the outside side borders of the tray.  When the texture paint had dried, I painted the tray with French Rose chalk paint then added some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink to add a vintage look to the tray.

Next I measured and cut one of the A4 sheets of the “Timeless Beauty” decoupage paper and adhered it to the inside bottom of the tray using Little Birdie Craft Glue. When the decoupage had dried, I added some Mocha Colour Splash around the edges.

In the next step, I used Marigold Alcohol Splash to color the Primed Chipboard and some Mixed Media Stones.

While the chipboard and stones were drying. I had the difficult choice of picking some of stunning Little Birdie flowers to decorate the tray with. Just like the decoupage papers, it is hard to choose… as they are all such beautifully handmade in a rainbow of colors.

I used a selection of Lucinda Blush Flowers and Spanish Moss Symphony Flowers .

I also added some Hummingbird Craft Stickers and the Mixed Media Stones.

Here is my finished “Live Every Moment” decoupage tray.

Thank you for popping by the Itsy Bitsy blog to see my creation. All the products I used are listed below.

 I hope I inspired you to get creative with Mixed Media.

See you again soon, Lisa x
