Altered Body Butter Tub & Some Studio 12 Candy

Good morning. I've got an altered project to show you today using an empty body butter container, some paint and the Studio 12 Picknix Collection 1 CD. I hope you like it! Oh and I whilst I'm here, don't forget to hop on over to the Studio 12 blog as I believe there may well be candy ;D Also, a quick heads up for those of you who asked me to let you know when Studio 12/ Polka Doodles are appearing on Create & Craft - well it's Tuesday 3/7 at 8am and 2pm.

Anyway, this supposed to be a short post, so onto my container......

I started out by using the freezer paper technique to print out the Polka Dot Rose Paper from the Welcome Home Kit onto some fabric. I then used the fabric to create the pin cushion lid. The tub was painted with Gesso, crackle medium and acrylic paints. I printed of several elements from the All Sewn Up collection onto tissue paper and then decoupaged them onto the tub. To finish I added a pearl bead string from my stash.

I'm going to use this pot for my fancy hat pins that were given to me by the lovely Clare and the mini buttons that I seem to have an increasing collection of!

That's it for me today. I hope you all have a fab Sunday (hopefully I'm en-route to The Craft Barn if the scheduling widget has worked).

Thanks for stopping by
