Quick and Easy Decoupage With Woodgrain Technique

Hello Everyone,

Today I have another Decoupage project, I tried the woodgraining technique for the first time and I am happy with the result. I Decoupage’d a trinket box using this technique.

I have used the beautiful-Vintage Butterflies 1 decoupage papers from Craftangles.

Step -1

For the topcoat I have used the brown and black shades of paint. Poured both the colours randomly on the top of the box and painted to achieve a lovely shaded effect.

For the top coat, I have chosen the vintage Blue and snow White paint. Again I painted both colours together to achieve a shaded effect.

When your paint is still wet drag the wood grain tool in a rocking motion towards you to achieve a lovely wood grain effect.

Step – 3

I did stenciling of a phrase. Next I fussy cut a butterfly from the Vintage Butterflies paper and decoupage’d the butterfly with the Decoupage glue.
Finally sealed it with a coat of clear varnish.
