DIY || Decoupage Plates and a Me in a Video??January 12, 2016
It's an exciting day! I will share a fun DIY and you get to see me speaking in a video!! Oh my!! My hair is a mess but I'm hoping you all love me anyway. And now that you will see me speaking does that mean we are taking this relationship to the next level? Kidding aside, you will love these DIY decoupaged plates (I adore mine!) and you will be intrigued by this video system I will introduce you to.
Let me give you a bit of background. My good friends started a company called iTOi where with the use of an ipad you can make your own videos with their app that has teleprompter capabilities (no more videos without eye contact! Finally!). You can basically write your own script and time it to your photos as I will do in this presentation. I'm not super techie and thought iTOi was very easy to use (and dare I say fun?!). This gadget is very versatile and has so many applications, even for bloggers. Here is my video-
Well??!! What is the consensus? Should I go hide under the bed? and never show my face again? I know you will all support me :). Ok, so back to the DIY. Here is everything you will need:
pretty wrapping paper | Mod Podge | Mona Lisa Gold Leafing Kit | glass plate (anything from Behrenberg Glass is perfect) | rolling sponge | brush]
The gold leafing is hard....but don't worry if the sheets crumble everywhere...it will still look good, I promise.
The final product. What is better than flowers and insects in gold??!!
Styled around the house
I even made some with my 8 year old and she loved it. It's so much fun to decoupage. I hope you are inspired to try it. And if you want to find out more about iTOi visit their website.
