Here I am posting something after a long time...was busy with some other things..
This time around I decided to try my hands on altering stuff... we all have so many things at our place which we usually throw away...so I did a small search in every corner of my house and gathered a lot of such throwaway and neglected stuff.. a scented candle jar.. a small wooden cabinet...old cd’s.. Woven straw baskets. Small tins ...etc ...etc...
This time I altered a scented candle jar which I purchased around 10 years back from Nainital...phew!! Long time!!
I removed the dried scented petals and cleaned the jar and then took the picture...It was tooooo dirty with lot of dirt and grime...but that’s not why I took the pic later... actually I forgot to take it before... my bad!
this is how it looks now
I have used the glass jar and painted it in light brown color on the inside and then alcohol inked it on the outside...it looked wonderful...as marble...Hope you can see that...
I handmade the calla lilies... And the big roses ...and shaded them using vintage photo and walnut stain distress inks...I used jute string to make the flower vine and I love how it turned out:)...also used some flat back pearls which alcohol inked with ginger shade (that’s the darkest brown with a pretty red tinge).. you can buy these from imaginations online store..
I am entering this altered glass jar into the following challenges:
Love to create-3 of anything- I used 3 colours...brown, green, orange... 3 flowers. Handmade roses, mulberry flowers and calla lilies... and wait 3 materials also...glass, jute ,paper
YAY!! was chosen the winner at squigglestamps-home decor and top 3 in For the love of crafting-challenge with a twist
Hope you all liked it... please leave a comment
