My first decoupage

20140407_162703_BKT_2

This was my first try to do decoupage and it’s not as hard as I thought it may be. You just need patience and a steel hand 😉 So I did it on wood but you can do it on any hard material, like glass, ceramic,..
I used a paper napkin but next time I’ll try with rice paper.

I found this on the Internet: The origin of decoupage is thought to be East Siberian tomb art. Nomadic tribes used cut out felts to decorate the tombs of their deceased. From Siberia, the practice came to China, and by the 12th century, cut out paper was being used to decorate lanterns, windows, boxes and other objects. In the 17th century, Italy, especially Venice, was at the forefront of trade with the Far East and it is generally thought that it is through these trade links that the cut out paper decorations made their way into Europe.

A couple of past months in pictures

While going through some my pictures on the laptop I realized there are some I almost forgot about and I wanted to share them with you. Instead of searching for happiness we should enjoy and appreciate the small things that happen every day. Let the happiness find us ❤

Živeo život

Hello, I guess it will take some time to get used to the new place. I came from My Opera and hope to continue talking with my friends from there, also I would like to meet new people.

While going through some old photos I found some pictures from July which I wanted to share with you. I was in Serbia and I went to visit the exposition called “Živeo život”. The goal of this exposition was to show the life of an ordinary man in Yugoslavia since 50s till 90s, including cars, fashion, music, movies, food,..For many people it was the moment to recall the past time, for the young to learn something new. I am not an Yugo-nostalgic but I like some things from that period like the music.

Let me show you some of the pictures I took back then:
