Mid Month Tutorial

Here we are over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit with our new mid month tutorial.  For this month I decided to alter a Douwe Egberts coffee jar.  These are so very versatile and just love altering them. 

 First of all I sprayed the jar with hairspray to give it a little tooth and painted over the top using acrylic paint.

I then heat embossed randomly using gold and verdigris embossing powders.  Once I achieved the effect I wanted I then used matt varnish over the top.

I then decoupaged the outside with a paper napkin, I tore out separate images and again randomly placed them.  I then heat embossed more verdigris over and around the images.

I sat for quite a while and pondered as to whether I should do more to this piece and decided that this was as far as I  wanted to go with it. 
I do hope you enjoyed my project.  Please join in with the fun over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit this month as we really enjoy taking on board all of your creativity.
