mixed media door

once upon a time i had decoupaged and painted my door and after several years needed a change. i happened upon a fabulous dolce and gabbana catalog from paris and thought the images would be beautiful decoupaged on my door. i started by punching circles with my martha stewart punch and deocoupaged them on the door, i used approximatly 125 circles. this worked out well to cover up the pre existing decoupage. i then chose a paint pallete of creams, blues, taupe and gold. i painted around each of the circles haphazardy. i think the effect is very visually pleasing, i will go back in and add some more creams to lighten it up, but am happy with it thus far. never be afraid to take a chance, the worse thing that could happen is you need to buy a new door.
-take risks: if you win you will be happy, if you lose, you will be wise.
