Decorated Pot

Good evening crafty friends, followers and visitors

Well I have had a fabulous afternoon creating in my craft room.  I haven't made any cards but I can tell you there has been Pebeo paint, Kroma crackle, Flitterglu, gilding flakes and book binding glue.  I have been in my element and I plan to be doing this all weekend (when I am at home).

Tonight's little pot I bought at Harrogate as I so love the shape of it but didn't have a clue what I was going to do with it, don't you find that? 

I have used Pebeo acrylic paint in blueberry and painted both the inside and the outside.  Once it was dry I then used one of my swirl stamps (Creative Expressions stamp) and stamped all the sides and used silver gilding flakes which had the odd gold flecks in it.  Around the bottom I attached stringed pearls with Pinflair and let that dry.  I wanted to use the wool with the love bits but it was to narrow so I crocheted a long snake to go around the top of the pot and enough to tie a bow.  on the back I have added the black butterfly which was cut out using Spellbinder Les Papillion 2 and added some gems.


On the front I have attached 3 stick pins a rose and 2 other flowers .


 on the back I have added the black butterfly which was cut out using Spellbinder Les Papillion 2 and added some gems.


I left the sides decorated only with the gilding flakes.  I am going to put a chocolate Easter bunny inside and give it as a gift to my mum!
