Altered Jar

Turn an ordinary mason jar into a work of art: 1.cover with paper 2. gesso then add image 3.paint with acrylics add words and moss 4. distress by applying stains and scratching off paint 5. finish with gel medium gloss coat. 6.Do the same to the lid.. add accents! Voila ..a new jar for treasures and secrets!

creations from the weekend

First....a little envelope book filled with treasures for Rena...on it's way in the mail in the morning,


Art for the wall ..one of my original art print's shrunk and made into glass slide art on its way to a swap partner on cc swaps,
and finally an altered jar for Kim, way up in cold country..it will be filled with treasures for her and sent happily to warm her day.....
a little snippet of the top of the jar..a nest for a creative soul to rest.

BRRRRRRRRR it is cold out here!


BRRRRRRRRR ..I live in the south but am starting to think I should add "pole" to the end of that! My little spot of sunshine is very small and usually quite warm..our island is usually seeing temps in the 70's off and on this time of year but no such luck this week.

(pic of my sweet "sis" and nephews on the beach of a neighboring island.)
