Happy Saturday to you! I wanted to pop in and share an altered jar I re purposed today with lots of vintage items.. ***Warning- picture heavy!*** I sat down to work on this and was determined to complete it in under an hour but not even close. I guess some days you have the creative flow and others not. I tried many different items because I am trying to destash as much as possible. This jar will be filled to the brim with lots of goodies for the recipient. :-)
I began this jar by cutting a strip of canvas that I stamped with various images from Pink Paislee and then sprayed with Delphinium Glimmer Mist. (See picture below for better detail) I added the fabric strip to a vintage piece of lace that I dyed orange but it never seemed to take the deep orange color I had hoped for. I am glad now because it worked perfectly with this project. :-) I used a vintage button card layered with a tiny piece of purple vinyl(also vintage) and a fish image that was highlighted with a brass library bracket. I tied a piece of Martha Stewart purple seam binding with brown twine and a white button.
The thin flora and fauna strip of paper is from Making Memories. It's wrapped around the middle of the canvas to create more dimension and add some printed texture. I created the rosette from a vintage account ledger I picked up in Paris this summer.
I added a small gummed tab with the word "joy" cut out that was stapled to the vintage button card. The velvet leaf is Making Memories and the printed flower is from Prima.
For the jar top, I added a green ruffle trim around the edges and a punched a large scallop from a piece of Daisy d's paper I have long cherished. I added a label that I stamped on the canvas. I kept this simple to not take away from the jar front.
I really love creating altered art pieces and especially love it when I can use vintage goodies! Thank you for stopping by and having a great weekend!
