So... my little project that I am sharing with you today.... I'm not going to mince words here - I absolutely, 100%, unashamedly stole this idea off my good bloggie buddy, the very talented and lovely Ms Jane. When I saw her altered jar in her post HERE I thought to myself - I wanna do that. hehehe. So sorry Jane, I copied, I am a copy cat ;) But thank you for the inspiration Hunny! haha.
Kellie :) Thanks Hun, I inked them up as fast as I could!
So the other night we had spagetti bol, I saved my jar from my tomato base and gave it a good wash. The jar is a strange shape, it is tapered towards the top so I thought it would give my little project a fun edge... but it just turned out to be a bit of a pain to decorate :S I gave the jar a bit of a shabby look with some gesso first then wrapped some cheesecloth around it, cut my strip of pretty Prima paper and punched and inked the edges and stuck it over the cheesecloth and got to work choosing my Tilda's
I stamped the cute flowers all around the patterned paper and water coloured them. I was surprised how well that worked. I've only ever coloured on patterned paper with Copics before so this was just a but if an experiment. There are 5 different Tilda's from various collections and of course, it wouldn't be complete without one of Tilda's little birdies :)
So! There you have it. My altered jar. Thanks again Jane for the awesome inspiration. I think I want a couple more of these :) I'll have to start saving my jars in all different sizes.
Thanks for your visit. I will be back tomorrow with something else to share :)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
