"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths."

- Walt Disney



I have been working with decoupage for more than 30 years, I'm the author of Upcycle With Decoupage, and I've been making instructional videos for 4 years now. Check out my Facebook page also called Upcycle with Decoupage and have a look at my youtube channel by searching out Patioelf. If you like and follow me on Facebook you will be notified every week when I put new videos out! You can also ask me questions or post your own works of art! I get inspired by lovely people like you all the time.

Have you ever decoupaged a guitar? How about a pine cone? Well I have. But for more practical purposes I have also decoupaged baskets to match the theme of a room. I've used those baskets for towels, guest supplies and toilet paper. I've also saved furniture pieces that had been sitting around the Goodwill store for months. My favorite is when I take a piece of my own furniture and paint it and decoupage it. Think of the compliments you'll get. You can decoupage on just about any surface you like! 


f you're ready to learn how to beautify those items that you just can't throw away.....I'm ready to show you how. You may just find this to be one of the most satisfying hobbies you have ever learned.  Welcome to my world...
