Where would we be without our modpodge eh? At City Crafter dear Ros asks us to dress up anything like a tin, envelope, book, jar, things like that. Stuff you would normally throw in the bin perhaps?
Oh dearie... my heart started fluttering tickery toe, for I do LOOOOVE dressing up junk!! Thank you dear dear Ros!
I chose a jar. A sweet tinny tiny jar with a sweet yellow gingham lid.
I added a sweet pink rose on top to make it even sweeter.
Then I really got started, armed with Mrs Modpodge, and covered the little jar in fabric.
And thought: voilá, a finished jar.
Or is it?
Now THERE's a jolly jar!
I felt like doing some embroidery and made a little strip with bright yellow squares, matching the ones on the lid, and some more pale pinkyness.
Do you see the small strip of pale pink on the bottom of the jar? Any idea what that is?
You know the thingies that are in your newly bought clothing, the ones that hold it up onto the hanger? (Or so they should!!) Yep, it's one of those! Don't throw them away but use them! They're fun little embellishments. Make sweet little bows for instance. Oh, there's one just below the lid, by the way... A bright pink one this time.
Ooh, and seeing the Wisteria on the background reminds me that I have wanted to show you our Wisteria in bloom (because I know some of you love Wisteria), which I forgot to do several times. There are only two little survivors left now I'm afraid. These photos were taken a couple of weeks ago.
It seems as if my crafty style is slightly changing. Well, we'll see where Miss Mojo will bring us.
