Hey all you crafty peeps! Have you ever wanted to learn to decoupage? What is decoupage you ask? Why, it is: the art of decorating a surface with shapes or pictures and then coating it with vanish or lacquer, according to And this is good enough for Dari Litchman of Papi's Mami who will be leading a decoupage workshop at Treehouse on February 2nd from 2-5. Raw wood picture frames will be provided, and you just bring your sweet self, along with color copies of family photos, magazine cutouts, rhinestones, foreign language newspapers, old maps, old books you don’t mind cutting up, decorative papers, glitter, bits n pieces, whatever tickles your fancy! Even dimensional puffy paints are great for decoupage, and permanent markers in fun colors, stuff like that.

If you would like to decoupage something else, bring it along. Examples might be a hat box, light switch cover, plaque, photo/storage box, wooden stool, etc. I just ask that if you bring something with you, please make sure you have already prepped it by lightly sanding and painting it. I will supply the mod podge, funky scissors, and wherewithal, not to mention stimulating conversation.

HELPFUL HINT: It will save time if you spend time at home cutting out images that you would like to work with so they are already ready for you to start decoupaging!

Come on down to Treehouse and chat, drink coffee, listen to music, sit back, relax, and craft it on up.
