Before I moved on to decoupaging my drawers, I decided to start with something simple, like this picture frame I had ruined with marker, and turn it into a textured frame for an experiment I'd had with paper moulding last year. I'm really happy with the end effect, a simple frame perfect for a textured painting or something with bold colours... or both!
If you want to have a go yourself you're going to need: An old frame, white primer paint, tissue paper in your chosen colour(s), a paintbrush, PVA or other decoupage glue, a paint tray, and water to clean your brush with. Make sure the frame is super clean and then paint with at least 3 layers of primer, leave to dry.
While your waiting for the paint to dry, select your tissue paper, tear (don't cut) into strips. Then, if you're like me, change your mind completely, change colour scheme, and tear up new tissue. I decided to go for all white and very textured to compliment the picture to go inside. The tissue I used was from a local non-profit organisation, http://www.cornwallscrapstore.co.uk/
Crumple the tissue paper and stick onto the frame using the glue underneath only. With most decoupage you're encouraged to glue over the top also, but I want a matt finish, so no top coat for me. I also scrunched some of the tissue after it was stuck on to encourage a textured finish. Once the tissue is completely dry you can go for a second layer wherever you think you need a bit more. Eventually you'll have the finished effect and can cut off the excess from round the edges.
