Decoupage Caddy

Its the beginning of the month and am here with my DT post for Rhedd's Creative Spirit. It's altered art or mixed media always and today I have given a plain wooden caddy a makeover.

I have used a tissue to decoupage and also used chalk paints from PLAID.

The squeeze tool/comb from Plaid is an amazing tool to give instant texture and dimension to an otherwise painted surface.

Here is a closer look with the pattern using the tool. Its gives a slight raised effect to the paint and at the same time a slightly distressed look.

 The lovely orchids pattern tissue had be adhered using Modpodge and the excess has been sanded off.

I have used Home decor chalk paints Lilac and Castle. The edged have been distressed with castle and the inside of the caddy too painted with the same color.

 I also soaked some cotton rope in watery chalk paint and then let it dry. The colored rope was then used around the handle.

I love how this turned out, lovely pastel shades and looks so different from the original now!

I hope you take the time to visit the blog to see the team's inspiration and play along too.
Thanks for stopping by.
