Emily Interesting created this stunning example using a decoupage medium as her glue and sealer. She suggests using real photos and paper artifacts instead of copies and I can see why. The different thicknesses add a lot of visual interest to the piece.
After one or two layers of medium have dried on the finished piece, Emily rubs a little burnt umber craft paint on the project to make those paper pieces stand out. Then she adds a couple more coats of medium to achieve that professional look.
Heckfire, that's a gorgeous suitcase, isn't it?
