It has been a difficult week with things not getting any easier anytime soon. The Father in Law is seriously ill in hospital at the moment and we are not sure if he will be well enough to come back out. Although the hospital staff are doing a wonderful job of keeping him going.
I do have a new project for you today which is a shabby chic jar i created from an empty beetroot jar. Make sure it is full washed and all labels are removed before coating with DecoArt White Gesso. You can find more DecoArt products and inspiration here http://decoart.com/community
The Works Charm Pack
Docrafts Madam Payrud's Lace Trims
Assorted Paper Roses
Assorted Ribbon roses
DecoArt do make chalky finish paint for glass but i didn't have the colour i wanted so i used 4 coats of Innocent from the Americana Chalky Finish Paint Range. Leave to dry fully and then paint over with Sealer or Matt Finish.
I used Trimcraft First Edition Pretty Poesy to decorate the center of the jar and i just cut it to fit. Next add a bit of wide lace trim around the center.
I added a large flower as the focal point and then added matching embellishments around it.
I created the lid by painting over it and then gluing pink lace around the lid. I then glued embellishments to the top and filled the lid.
