Decoupage is a nice way to decorate things with paper. There are special paper called just decoupage paper, but I use napkins. You can use ordinary newspaper or magazines too if you want. The usage range big, from textiles, glass, metal, wood and candles, and possibly more, so it is just to try things out.
The image above is the first thing I did and that's before 2005 wanted to test on a breakfast tray and is quite happy with it to be the first attempt. Below are a few planters that I'm really happy with and they were gifts for my mother, but now I have inherited them after her death. Although the key cabinet is something I'm very pleased with and it has motifs on the sides too. It was made in 2005.
