I have always been interested in learning how to decoupage.
Truth be told, I have a Pinterest board full of crafts I would like to make, and many of those pins are about how to decoupage. Alas, because I am always in a constant state of balancing life, volunteer work, parenting, and pursuing my passions, crafting often gets pushed to the back burner.
Until I find a teacher who is willing to share what she has learned with me.
I met Ingrid awhile back through my friend Em Sulit. I was visiting Project Mom, during an overnight stay I had at Makati Shangrila, and mentioned to Em that I would like to see her if she was around. Unfortunately, Em and I did not get to meet up, but she did tell me to look for the crafty decoupage lady, because she has some cute owl crafts I might be interested in.
I noticed right away that Ingrid was of course a momprenuer. Her daughter was with her in her booth and Em was right. She had a ton of owl crafts that I fell in love with. She also had kits to take home if I was so inclined to try my hand at decoupage myself…
Well, Ingrid has agreed to host a Crafternoon for us in the south!!!
HIP HIP HOORAY!
This is what you can expect from her class 🙂You will have the choice of either one large item to craft, or two smaller items to craft. Since we were doing passport holders, I figured it would be best if I chose something that made me feel like traveling…Which design do would you choose? After we measure, then the meticulous part comes into play. We had to be very careful while painting, gluing, and drying after cutting…I took my time and was sure to follow her directions. Ingrid’s way of teaching and crafting is really calming. In fact, while we were crafting together, we all became really quiet. It was funny, because when I noticed this and mentioned something aloud…we all kinda giggled and said, now we know why you do this! If you would like to read more about what Helene thought of our mini class-check out her post here.
It was so relaxing to craft with these ladies!
