Decoupage - Gourds

I am getting ready for a Garage Sale that I am participating this March 24th at my favorite store Scrapbooking Made Simple. Going over my craft stuff is hard, especially when most of the items I seem to wanna keep. I had to convince myself that the items I will be able to sell during the garage sale will give me new stuff. So I am able to fill up 2 boxes with items just collecting dusts. I hope it will find a new home that will put them to use. Another thing that I liked about going over my stuff is that I find items that has been on my todo projects in years but never did anything with them. For example the small gourds that I bought years ago at a gourd farm that my friend took me to. I started working on them yesterday. I love how they turned out.

Work in progress...

I have been eyeing on this scrapbook paper at our local Beverly's store. I bought the last 10 of this paper last leap day. I have been in an accordion fold frenzy, so I made more with this paper to add to my etsy shop. Still need to add few embellishments. As you can see I added a touch of printed vellum on the wedding dress. One the left side of the card, planning to add a Wedding poem that I found on the internet. Also I'm thinking of adding a Congratulations stamp on the lower left part of the card. Will have a touch of different color based on the wedding motif.


One of my favorite thing to do is to decoupage. Here's one I made for my etsy store. The letters are about 9 inches tall.
