Ooh, look at us socialising and sharing!
Hi, I’m Natasha.
Ooh, look at me welcoming you to my creative blog, where I will introduce you to all the fun, creative and crazy things I get up to.
I am a wife and a mother to my 3 children and 2 dogs, so you can imagine how chaotic it can get in our house.
“Ooh, look at me!” is an ironic name because I actually don’t like drawing attention to myself or my family, yet I really like inspiring others to be creative because I know how fulfilling it can be. The name also comes from something silly we used to say years ago and it kind of just stuck with me.
Check out our About Us page for more information about us and what we do.
I hope this brings you creative joy
Let’s get yarning and creative!
Ooh, look at me going on a creative journey with you!
Or, you can
Art Inspiration - Decoupage Tissue Box
Recently, my brothers and I, made decoupage tissue boxes. Decoupage is a decorative technique in which a design is made of either cut out pieces of printed paper glued onto surfaces, or, pattern tape stuck onto surfaces. You can buy paper mache items and stick different patterned paper or tape onto it. You can make either an ornament or storage item. You can also decorate book covers, folders and other items in this way. If you have a piece of household furniture that is tired and old, you can style it up with decoupage. Hobbycraft have a lot of inspiration of their blog for different projects. We bought a lot of the supplies from Hobbycraft:
We decorated our boxes in our own way. We glued the paper to some of the sides and then added the tape to the other sides. Then we added a layer of PVA glue over the paper to make it last longer. It’s really fun, easy and quick to do. It made a great home schooling project and gave us something usable at the end of it!
May all your crafting wishes come true……
