Hello my crafty friends......
It's me,Arpita here on the blog today....with a simple yet a beautiful project.I recieved this gorgeous lampshade base by THE ELEMENT CRAFT STUDIO and fell in love with this piece instantly,its so beautifuly desinged and coceptulized.I also recieved their recently launched decoupaged papers,which are 100gsm papers with great prints,lovely colors and has a great texture,i absolutely loved working with them.So here is what i made.....
1 .I roughly cut the decoupage paper to size of the panels adhered them using modpodge one panel at a time,sanded the extra paper..once done with all the panels I applied a coat of modpodge and 2 coats of varnish.
2 .Next was to paint the stand,i used lilac chalk paint...applied 2 coats of the chalk paint and to add some interest to the stand i decided to do some gilding using a silver leaf and did some stenciling using modelling pase on the base of the stand.
3. Finished it by adding a lace trim and some beads to the top part of the lampshade.
ThankYou for stopping by...
see you soon with another interesting project,till then
