...I had a thought.
Shocking, I know. Your world must be turned upside down right now but I implore you to keep reading on despite this shocking revelation.
This was my thought:
What the hell is decoupage?
I was working with Mod Podge yesterday on a project of mine (one of many), and it reminded me of my youth. A memory came unbidden to my mind where my hands were covered in a sticky glue like substance with bits of paper due to the paper mache craft I was doing at the time.
This memory prompted a question as I studiously worked away on my craft.
I wondered about the differences between paper mache, collage, and decoupage. I'm going to be honest here, I knew what the first two were. The third, well, my brain automatically went like this:
Decoupage - Decompose - Compost...huh?
needless to say, I ended up on Google's home page to look up the definition.
We all know what paper mache is...at least I hope you do.
If not, just Google that shit.
Based on the above, I feel like decoupage and collage are essentially the same thing...
Collage just has a broader base of materials and decoupage is strictly paper. Perhaps we can afford decoupage a subcategory under collage, along with paper mache.
Maybe it already held that spot and it just takes me a while to "catch up".
Cool. Mystery solved. Huzzah!
My mind is now free for the next random thing that comes upon it.
YAY random information!
