In my former life, as a broadcast actress,I once went to an audition,where the casting director ask me which Spice Girl I would be? Yeah it was that long ago. Without hesitation I replied,"Decoupage Spice". The C.D. giggled and ask why. Well my answer remains the same,I'm a singin', dancin', artsy-craftin' ,kinda girl.
My absolute favorite medium is, collage, of the decoupage variety. I still can't throw out a magazine without making sure I have picked it clean of any cool images.I have a rather large clear box in my closet filled with these "magazine fossils".
Yep, I got in there today to work on something special for my littlest flower blossom. For my oldest daughter, I created a special overnight bag from a vintage suitcase, and images from thrifted doll magazines, when she was 4. Well, now my 3 year old wants her own "goin' to grammas" bag. So I got down to the business of decoupaging today. What fun! Oh yeah I was NOT cast in the coffee commercial or whatever it was. Casting Directors !!??
