What have you been doing lately...?

...DECOUPAGE!

That's what I have been doing.

My new room (there will be pictures, but not yet. Just be patient) has a nice little table, with 3 nice little chairs, and plenty of workspace for imagination.
On that table I have been taking my love of decoupaging (*basically gluing stuff onto something else in an artist manner) to a new level. I have this wooden, foldable lap desk (for like writing while sitting in bed and such things) but ...it was boring. Bare, ugly wood.

So, because I am me and me doesn't believe in boring, I am making it cooler. I have been hacking up magazines like a mad woman and mod- podging (decoupaging glue...) them onto it, along with movie tickets, clothing tags, and newspaper clippings.

I'm not done yet, but let me show you what I have done. Sorry, I am a little excited.


Top surface.


Top folds up into a white board, leaving another top-ish surface.


The Joker and Batman, right next to my ticket from seeing Dark Knight, are my favorite part of the whole thing. (Are you one of those people who disliked that movie, or one of the ones who loves, it like I do?)

The large Owlbra (Owl/Zebra) on the toptop (not the top-ish top...) comes in as close second as favorite.
Still need to do the fold out sides. A stack of magazines is eagerly waiting...
