Do you remember a 1940s cartoon in which a slick wolf sitting in a nightclub starts howling and making big eyes at a sultry femme fatale voice singing stage right? No, then check this youtube link and come back, please.
Back, good. We can proceed.
That wolf was me when I laid first glance at the decoupage rocks in the sunlight. Whoaaaaa!
These are my first experiments decoupaging rocks. Yup, they are. (Imagine my big smile!) A decoupage rock is one of my planned entries for the county fair in a few weeks. Maybe one of these if I don't get a chance to play with more possibilities.
Easy-peasy: Paint one side of rocks white. Dry. Paint other side of rocks white. Dry. Tear pictures to fit rocks to your pleasure. Glue pictures to rocks with decoupage medium. Dry.
At first I wanted to use pretty paper napkins for my pictures. I got excited about shopping at the party supply store. Then I recalled the last time I was there. The aisles were messy and little kids talked loudly while their parents ignored them. Shudder.
Fortunate for me, the Husband and I own a houseful of crumbling ephemera and books. The rabbit drawing came from a late 1940s magazine article while the two illustrations were from a Horace Mann primer.
The decoupage rocks are knockouts! Thank you very much. :-)
