Decoupage Decor

Decoupage - so easy a kid can do it!
Trenton, Trevan and Turner all have done decoupage projects to help decorate our new home. I found this plaque that I made a few years ago using torn scrapbook paper, decoupage glue - Mod Podge - and a photo of my nephews, niece and son looking at the ocean.
I ripped letters out of scrapbook paper to spell
"See the Sea" in french.
I then aged it using some brown paint thinned with water.

I found the sailboat on clearance at Home Depot in the patio section for $7.99. I painted it with the green wall paint that we used as our accent wall in the living room.

We then got busy and did more projects - watch for them!
