The Queen of Dcoupage brings the popular craft and her sense of style together to show not only how to create works of art, but how to display them. Dcoupage has been known for centuries as a wonderful way to transform the ordinary-from flea market finds to attic treasures-into extraordinary room accents.For years, bestselling author and craft expert Leslie Linsley has taken this craft and raised it to an art form, selling her one-of-a-kind pieces in stores such as Tiffany's and Henri Bendel. In LESLIE LINSLEY'SDCOUPAGE, the author gives inspiration as to items to be decorated-from boxes to large pieces of furniture-and demonstrates how to create a work of dcoupage. She then applies her highly acclaimed sense of style to show how to decorate with the finished projects, by giving her unique philosophy of why she uses a particular piece in a space and how she comes to the design. Lavishly illustrated with photography of her creations in beautiful settings, LESLIE LINSLEY'S DCOUPAGE is much more than a craft book-it is an inspired look at interior design with a craft touch.
