Wanna see my beano chair? All finished?
Using three beano mags....cutting out the comic pictures........( it's actually amazing how many non dennis the mence/minnie/banana man stories they have in these...of course they were no good at all! we wanted retro vintage beano baby )...
Unfortunately my naughty tinker of a camera picked out the wrinkled bits...these re there, but not as noticeable in REALIFE! Honestly!!!!! ( I did struggle with the wrinkles, though came away thinking, hummmm not looking to old today after all.....no botox today )
Using pod modge as a sealer is super fast and easy......and far less smelly than using varnish. I just hope the little birthday boy whom this is all for likes it. That's always a worry isn't it, if you've made something for someone? You have no shop or company to blame when things go wrong, or fall apart.....though I think all the mod podge will keep this together for a few years yet....fingers crossed.
And can I just put it out there, that ordinarily I am NOT a fan of decoupage....at all. It usually makes me shudder. That's only my opinion, but it's just...eeeek dare I say a bit errrrrrmmmmmmmm.... chintzy, cheese-ball, retirement project type thing?......
But using an old colourfest cheeky, favourite, it works........for me.
I'm thinking I rather like the banana man pictures bestest of all.....the shocking yellow, and funky words... Ker blam babeeeeeeeeee ........though it took a good week on and off to finish..... and coming from a girly girl, I really rather like it......is that my inner tom boy? Though I'm sure I have some old girl annuals lying about somewhere, that would make a fabby chair or stool......One day eh?
I quite like the thought too, of a mans work desk being covered in beano pictures...........yes I like that thought.
Fancy having a go????? Go on....do it xxx
