I decided to decoupage an old metal office cabinet. There's certainly emough random papers in my"art room" to do it! Here is the work in progress.

And here is my workspace - the floor.I learned the following:
Tear up your papers first - gluey fingers & torn paper are a real mess.
Fingers make a better brayer than the real thing.
Use good quailty paper napkins - the cheap ones roll into little balls & stick to everything except where you put them.
It takes two-and-a-half times the papers that you estimate.
It's good messy fun! My kind of art. Messy and random.

Here's a couple of little clutches I made using old cassette tapes and a skein of yarn each. Each one has a vintage button for the closure.
The idea came from My Recycled Bags, check it out.
