You know why I can't embroider? My hands sweat. It's sounds so horrible, and it is. Everything I touch ends up wet and dirty. It's a shame I wanted to embroider quilts for my grandbabies that I don't have yet but hope to some day. Oh well...guess I'll give them a decoupaged dresser instead!

annie, the trick to keeping bubbles out is using small pieces and smoothing them with a straight edge as you go. Gently but firmly smooth each bit of paper and don't be afraid to use extra decoupage paste. I use tissue paper or the thinest paper I can get to decoupage with, I've also found lace and fine fabric like organza makes an interesting affect.
