When we first found Asia King it was when she made this piece for her blog. It was love at first sight and we asked her if we could pin it to our boards. She was very gracious and said yes, then emailed us two days later to insist we take it down because it had been chosen for a magazine!! Well, we weren’t surprised! We’re glad to say we can finally show it in all its glory on our blog. We know you’ll love it as much as we do!
Hello Stampendous Friends! It’s me, your favourite UK correspondent! . Time for new inspiration from Asia King .
Today I am taking you down memory lane… I made this project a while ago. It was the first time I tried the awesome technique of…errr…napkin art… At that point I didn’t dare calling it ‘decoupage’ as I didn’t want to upset any pro-decoupage-artists with my shy attempts lol >.
You will need:
One of my favourite stamps of all time – I love Paris Cling stamp!

Vintage frame, printed napkins, patterned papers of your choice, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals and Tattered Leaves dies, selection of additional flowers and embellishments, Gold Cosmic Shimmer Mist, Inktense pencils.
First I covered the whole frame with fragments of napkin and used watered down PVA glue as an adhesive and to varnish. When dry, I sprayed the frame with the gold cosmic shimmer mist.
The background was also covered with the same napkin and dry brushed with matt emulsion paint. This gives a nice washed out, chalky finish which is lovely to stamp on.
I then stamped this beautiful Stampendous stamp and coloured it with Inktense pencils.
Using TH dies, I cut some leaves from a leaf textured paper and made some flowers from various patterned papers. Then I added some more Prima flowers, a vintage button and some hat pins. The seam binding and the cheese cloth were coloured with inks and glimmer mists.
And I’ve got to say, this project has definitely started a new era for me and opened a whole new world of crafting adventures! I truly encourage you to give it a try – if you haven’t yet. Why don’t you check out my tile coasters tutorial which you can find here?
And if you don’t fall in love with napkin art – then well… I won’t believe you! lol .
Bye for now!
