Art à la Serviette

''Tea time chit chat''


This is interesting. Every time I go to the art supplies section (which is most Saturday afternoons) I would see a couple of ladies at a booth doing some craft work with the available products.

There is a section where they have beautiful paper towels and decorative papers ( and this is in the art section). On one of those weekend visits I saw these ladies were glueing cut outs from these tissue papers on to wooden plates and decorating them. I moved on to get my acrylic paints, brushes and canvas, etc.

Last Saturday when I went back, I took a closer look and I saw a range of special glues and varnishes available for the décopatch papers and the serviettes (napkins) along with brushes of different sizes. It was too much of a temptation for me when I saw this tea n coffee design. I had to work with these. I have brought a few décopatch papers and glue and will be using them in my paintings!!!!

Tell me what you think!
