Fox Silhouette Art

Posted by DecoArt on Oct 2nd 2014

Hello there! It's Robin with All Things Heart and Home and I'm finishing up a little fall nesting in my den. This year, I'm using book pages as a jumping off point for all things autumn. Today I want to show you how easy it is to add a touch of whimsy to any space with this sweet little fox silhouette!

Items Needed:

  • Book Pages
  • Frame With Cardboard Insert
  • Template Of A Woodland Animal
  • Decorative Paper


With a few book pages ...

Instruction Image #1

And some DecoArt Metallic Paint, your favorite woodland creature can add a little shimmer to your fall decor.

Instruction Image #2

First, tear your book pages so you have no straight edges...

Instruction Image #3

Add the Americana Multi-Surface Gold Metallic paint to a paper plate along with a little water...mix the paint and water.

Instruction Image #4

Either paint the edges or dip the edges in the watered down paint...this is a way to give your final product depth and of course it ages the book pages even more... 

Instruction Image #5

When your pages are dry, use the Americana Decou-Page glue/sealer to glue the pages onto your cardboard...

Instruction Image #6

Using your template, trace your little woodland creature onto your decorative, cut it out!

Instruction Image #7

Add water and Americana Multi Surface Silver Metallic to a paper plate and mix...using the gold (from your book page edges) and the silver, watercolor your cut out until you have it just like you want it! Be conservative if you want your decorative paper to show through-you can always add more later! The metallics give the image a beautiful shimmer!

When the image is dry, use the Decou-Page to glue it onto book page background...then paint a thin coat of Decou-Page over the entire project...
