True Confessions Of A Decoupage Addict

My name is Wanda and I am a decoupage addict.  You see, it all started when I did my first post on decoupage I had no idea how deep I would fall in love with this craft.  And I certainly didn't know that I would crave it, and want to do it every chance I get.

 As I got deeper into my addiction, I started using more and more.....magazine paper, cereal, boxes, labels, receipts, old books, vintage images, I used them all.  I was totally hooked!.  

Then I starting seeing things I never noticed before.  
Colors and textures in the most unlikely places...

I would see a cereal box or the print on a receipt and I would go "aha! that would be perfect on a collage".  No kidding.  Now, I see potential everywhere.  Whether its an image, a scrap of paper, or simply being inspired by my surroundings, I am in hyper creative mode......and lovin it!   

Now I know that addictions are traumatic and sometimes require interventions, but don't worry about me, my addiction has no side affects except for one.  I just can't stop smiling.....
