to demonstrate that Decoupage is not always just flowers and angels all over, but can also describe the filthy and swinish side of life, I'll show you one of my kitchen cabinets. I made it out of an old shoe cabinet, which according to its smell must have been in a lot of rustic and rural dephts.
I was thinking of a still life scene for it first, but then I thought, it is really a rustic piece of furniture and it needs some really rustic Decoupage, whatever that might be. Then my view fell on a poster hanging in my kitchen. It is a picture called "Das Suppenschwein" (The soup pig) by german artist Michael Sowa and I don't know if he is known over the big pond, but he is quite popular here. It fitted perfectly and I knew this was a sign, so I went on with it. The table cloth, the shadows and the soup splashs I painted and the napkin, spoon, plate and glass were cut out. After stripping the colour you could see a lot of bruises and woodworm holes and I thought this adds to its rural charm and so it just  got a treatment with wood oil (?). That's all there was to do  and I hope you like it.
