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.
