December Mid Month Tutorial by Elaine

Here we are over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit with our new mid month tutorial.  Before I set out my project below I just want to thank all those who have participated in our last challenge and our ongoing December challenge.

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.

Hugz always
