September Home Decor Project

Oh!  How I love to find things at my local thrift store—Amador Hospice Thrift, especially during their half-off sale—it’s sublime! 

The coffee table pictured below I procured during their last half-off sale, for $3, brought it home, and eagerly got started with the Mod Podge.  I’m absolutely in love with it! 

TIP:  When printing digital elements/paper for decoupage projects, it’s best to print them on paper that is fast-drying, smudge resistant, water resistant, and fade resistant.  I use Epson’s Presentation Paper, Matte.  After applying several layers of the Hard Coat Mod Podge, I also use a few layers of varnish, specifically DecoArt’s DuraClear Varnish, Gloss.

September Cards & Layout

Well we’re just starting to get used to our new schedules and routines.  I’m definitely looking forward to the fall season for a couple of reasons—a change in weather AND the new fall lineup for television.  I can’t wait for my shows to come back! 

Below are some projects I’ve been working on this September using products from jessicasprague.com.   I hope you like . . .
