Wild rose motif I
Created by Alena Isabella Grimmichová grimmich.cz
Floral motifs have a loyal fan base. We women and girls are particularly fond of flowers and enjoy having them with us, whether live flowers or decorations featuring eternally bright, vivid flowers in bloom. The wild rose is a beautiful and oft-used art motif. Using napkin appliqué, many little knickknacks for our desk can be created; in our case we will apply a dog rose motif. We are using a napkin in which the roses are blooming in shades of pink and burgundy.
1 Materials: floral pattern napkins; decoupage or dispersion glue; flat brush; scissors; items we would like to decorate – in this case, notebooks.
2 Cut the flowers out of the napkin.
3 You can buy a finished notebook or make one yourself out of natural paper and paper ribbon. To make the result more attractive and add a three-dimensional quality to the notebook, adhere a rectangle of white handmade paper to the cover. White will also make the colours in the flowers brighter.
4 Remove the bottom two plies of paper from the cut-out floral pattern.
5 Using a brush, adhere the flower to the notebook. First brush glue onto the place where the flower will be applied, then brush glue on top of the flower once it has dried. If any wrinkles form while the picture is being glued, immediately smooth them with a wet brush.
