Needless to say I have a hard time creating a vignette to share my creations. I didn't even share the floor to ceiling, wall to wall mirror in the back of the dining room....no way to take a pic without being in it, so I wasn't goin' there!
Mom loves mirrors!
Anyway, back to the fruit....I considered painting, silver leafing, decoupaging with sheet music, or just leaving them alone...I decided on decoupage.
My song birds, seen Here were a favorite, but how much music covered stuff does one person need, right? I finally decided on some pretty paper that I found at Michael's. I selected 2 or 3 patterns for each piece of fruit and got busy....like this....
Decoupage Recipe....1/2 and 1/2 glue and water, MIX....That's it!!!
I find that applying the decoupage mix to both sides of the paper is best....I use my fingers....go ahead, it's part of the fun, but if you do this you better have someone else to take pics. I was on my own so I don't have any pics of the process, but here is the final product....
