Think Pink!!


Hello and Happy Hip Hop!!

You have made it to the last stop on today's Hip Hop!!

And did you have fun seeing us FLIP FLOP on the HIP HOP today??

The Unity girls used Ippity and the Ippity girls used Unity!!


Be sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom to see the winner from this week's 
Hippity Hop Comment Prize from Monday!!



Today I have a project for you and a little tutorial on how I made it!

It follows the theme for this week's HIP HOP which is about 

Encouragement in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness






The Ippity Stamp set used here is from Delightful Little Things!


You can read more about my inspiration for this project on my own blog.

But first I would like to share with you how I created the decoupaged plate above.

My inspiration came from the multicolored tissue paper that came in a Victoria Secrets bag.





The hearts on their tissue paper reminded me a little bit like the Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon!

Before you can get started, please collect the following supplies...





You will need:
Tissue paper
Mod Podge
Water
Foam brush
and the object you are decoupaging.

Step One:

Rip the tissue into multiple strips

Step Two:

Apply glue to the side of the object you will be applying the paper to.





Step Three:

Place strips one at a time onto the glued areas and reapply glue to the top of the strips.
Continue until the whole object is covered.





Step Four:

Overlap the strips until it is opaque and unable to be seen through.






Step Five:

Allow the decoupaged area to dry completely.





Step Six:

Carefully trim the edges of the object with a sharp blade.

Step Seven:

If desired, add a coat of paint to the backside of the object to improve its' opacity.

Then decorate the front and you are finished!!!


READY TO SEE WHO OUR WINNER IS THIS WEEK???
