How to Decoupage with Denise Boddey Designs

The decoupage paper I used was Quite Place. It is a part of the Out in my Garden set from Denise Boddey Designs. The one-sheet covered the entire project and was used in a few different ways. The Quite Place design has a colorful plant design with a subtle overall pattern. The different areas of design were used specifically on the birdhouse. The birdhouse makes a great decorative piece and there is a lot of attention to detail.


I am excited to announce that I am a member of the Denise Boddey Design Team.

Materials:

  • Quite Place sheet
  • wooden birdhouse
  • green paint
  • sponge paintbrush
  • small paintbrush
  • decoupage glue
  • scissors
  • satin ribbon (green)
  • sparkle paste
  • UV resin
  • bird sticker

Directions:


To make the leaves have more stability, I covered them in UV resin and cured it.
Then I cut out the leaf design and set them aside for later.


Using a Foliage Green colored paint, I covered the birdhouse with a thin coat.


Here is the house painted.


I began to fit the subtle paper design to the sides of the birdhouse using decoupage glue under and over the paper.


Using a matte decoupage glue added a nice sheen to the paper.
Trimming the paper to the bottom edge of the birdhouse while the paper was wet left a rough edge which I will hide later.https://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/ads?client=ca-pub-6266942531963740&output=html&h=280&adk=2591642117&adf=2511820791&w=820&fwrn=4&fwrnh=100&lmt=1600565820&num_ads=1&rafmt=1&armr=3&sem=mc&pwprc=7204917205&psa=1&guci=2.2.0.0.2.2.0.0&ad_type=text_image&format=820×280&url=https%3A%2F%2Ftryit-likeit.com%2Fentries%2Fcreate%2Fhow-to-decoupage-with-denise-boddey-designs&flash=0&fwr=0&pra=3&rh=200&rw=820&rpe=1&resp_fmts=3&wgl=1&fa=27&adsid=NT&dt=1600565816940&bpp=4&bdt=3737&idt=4&shv=r20200915&cbv=r20190131&ptt=9&saldr=aa&abxe=1&cookie=ID%3Db88650c4930810b4%3AT%3D1600562313%3AS%3DALNI_MYOyHc5IyrX5qryugHYUv-oyBB81w&prev_fmts=0x0%2C300x250%2C850x425&nras=2&correlator=8361932644105&frm=20&pv=1&ga_vid=1296732239.1600562314&ga_sid=1600562314&ga_hid=1014777550&ga_fc=1&iag=0&icsg=3421680856727552&dssz=79&mdo=0&mso=0&u_tz=-360&u_his=1&u_java=0&u_h=900&u_w=1600&u_ah=860&u_aw=1600&u_cd=24&u_nplug=3&u_nmime=4&adx=247&ady=5789&biw=1583&bih=708&scr_x=0&scr_y=0&eid=21066705&oid=3&psts=AGkb-H9rQhx7yLhQbBGw4bnH1KqcfqpSZpeuowXTwNUkRnH4OvTA7–HY7wDUhtwKMOh%2CAGkb-H8jo_0ZULvY2WuuQbPcRMuIKEK5-kcH-a9XHPMdvtFt1mcZlvwy-Tew2JSANy_gfMyk6ym3gg&pvsid=962885958521269&pem=299&ref=https%3A%2F%2Ftryit-likeit.com%2Fentries%2Fcreate%3Fpage%3D3&rx=0&eae=0&fc=1408&brdim=0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C1600%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C1600%2C708&vis=1&rsz=%7C%7Cs%7C&abl=NS&fu=8320&bc=31&ifi=4&uci=a!4&btvi=1&fsb=1&xpc=bt05rBYmeQ&p=https%3A//tryit-likeit.com&dtd=3996


The back of the birdhouse has a nice surprising leaf design.


I added the decorative elements to the front. The resin leaves at the top and a bird sticker at the bottom.
In the above photo, you can also see the ribbon wrapped around the bottom.
I used decoupage glue for all of these elements.https://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/ads?client=ca-pub-6266942531963740&output=html&h=280&adk=2591642117&adf=4148038230&w=820&fwrn=4&fwrnh=100&lmt=1600565820&num_ads=1&rafmt=1&armr=3&sem=mc&pwprc=7204917205&psa=1&guci=2.2.0.0.2.2.0.0&ad_type=text_image&format=820×280&url=https%3A%2F%2Ftryit-likeit.com%2Fentries%2Fcreate%2Fhow-to-decoupage-with-denise-boddey-designs&flash=0&fwr=0&pra=3&rh=200&rw=820&rpe=1&resp_fmts=3&wgl=1&fa=27&adsid=NT&dt=1600565816948&bpp=2&bdt=3744&idt=2&shv=r20200915&cbv=r20190131&ptt=9&saldr=aa&abxe=1&cookie=ID%3Db88650c4930810b4%3AT%3D1600562313%3AS%3DALNI_MYOyHc5IyrX5qryugHYUv-oyBB81w&prev_fmts=0x0%2C300x250%2C850x425%2C820x280&nras=3&correlator=8361932644105&frm=20&pv=1&ga_vid=1296732239.1600562314&ga_sid=1600562314&ga_hid=1014777550&ga_fc=1&iag=0&icsg=3421680856727552&dssz=80&mdo=0&mso=0&u_tz=-360&u_his=1&u_java=0&u_h=900&u_w=1600&u_ah=860&u_aw=1600&u_cd=24&u_nplug=3&u_nmime=4&adx=247&ady=7209&biw=1583&bih=708&scr_x=0&scr_y=0&eid=21066705&oid=3&psts=AGkb-H9rQhx7yLhQbBGw4bnH1KqcfqpSZpeuowXTwNUkRnH4OvTA7–HY7wDUhtwKMOh%2CAGkb-H8jo_0ZULvY2WuuQbPcRMuIKEK5-kcH-a9XHPMdvtFt1mcZlvwy-Tew2JSANy_gfMyk6ym3gg&pvsid=962885958521269&pem=299&ref=https%3A%2F%2Ftryit-likeit.com%2Fentries%2Fcreate%3Fpage%3D3&rx=0&eae=0&fc=1408&brdim=0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C1600%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C1600%2C708&vis=1&rsz=%7C%7Cs%7C&abl=NS&fu=8320&bc=31&ifi=5&uci=a!5&btvi=2&fsb=1&xpc=Hnc6i6kp0J&p=https%3A//tryit-likeit.com&dtd=4006

The chimney and the circled end of the perch are also covered with the designed paper.https://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/ads?client=ca-pub-6266942531963740&output=html&h=280&adk=2591642117&adf=3562470715&w=820&fwrn=4&fwrnh=100&lmt=1600565820&num_ads=1&rafmt=1&armr=3&sem=mc&pwprc=7204917205&psa=1&guci=2.2.0.0.2.2.0.0&ad_type=text_image&format=820×280&url=https%3A%2F%2Ftryit-likeit.com%2Fentries%2Fcreate%2Fhow-to-decoupage-with-denise-boddey-designs&flash=0&fwr=0&pra=3&rh=200&rw=820&rpe=1&resp_fmts=3&wgl=1&fa=27&adsid=NT&dt=1600565816959&bpp=3&bdt=3755&idt=3&shv=r20200915&cbv=r20190131&ptt=9&saldr=aa&abxe=1&cookie=ID%3Db88650c4930810b4%3AT%3D1600562313%3AS%3DALNI_MYOyHc5IyrX5qryugHYUv-oyBB81w&prev_fmts=0x0%2C300x250%2C850x425%2C820x280%2C820x280&nras=4&correlator=8361932644105&frm=20&pv=1&ga_vid=1296732239.1600562314&ga_sid=1600562314&ga_hid=1014777550&ga_fc=1&iag=0&icsg=3421680856727552&dssz=80&mdo=0&mso=0&u_tz=-360&u_his=1&u_java=0&u_h=900&u_w=1600&u_ah=860&u_aw=1600&u_cd=24&u_nplug=3&u_nmime=4&adx=247&ady=7527&biw=1583&bih=708&scr_x=0&scr_y=0&eid=21066705&oid=3&psts=AGkb-H9rQhx7yLhQbBGw4bnH1KqcfqpSZpeuowXTwNUkRnH4OvTA7–HY7wDUhtwKMOh%2CAGkb-H8jo_0ZULvY2WuuQbPcRMuIKEK5-kcH-a9XHPMdvtFt1mcZlvwy-Tew2JSANy_gfMyk6ym3gg&pvsid=962885958521269&pem=299&ref=https%3A%2F%2Ftryit-likeit.com%2Fentries%2Fcreate%3Fpage%3D3&rx=0&eae=0&fc=1408&brdim=0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C1600%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C1600%2C708&vis=1&rsz=%7C%7Cs%7C&abl=NS&fu=8320&bc=31&ifi=6&uci=a!6&btvi=3&fsb=1&xpc=QXVFjgGQ3P&p=https%3A//tryit-likeit.com&dtd=4002


I also decoupaged the bottom of the birdhouse, paying attention to details.


For a final touch, the roof was wiped with sparkle paste, I applied this with my fingers for a light coat.
