Two altered items.

Hi Everyone,
I hope you are all keeping well....
I would like to say a big
THANK YOU
To all of you who commented on my last post,
I really appreciate the feedback.
It's lovely to be back in Blogland.

At the moment i have no desire to make cards etc,
But i am getting involved in other crafts.....
I'd go mad if i didn't have my hobbies.

I would like to share my latest creations with you,
I hope you like them.

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges.
That Craft Place - No Cards #26   10-05-15
2 Creative Chicks #25 - Anything Goes (no cards) #46  Closed.


The vase was long forgotten, In the loft.

The first thing i did was give it a coat of Gesso,
Then i painted it black,
It didn't look right, So i decided to give it a stone effect.
(Details below)

Finally, I gave it a coat of black paint,
When it was completely dry, I coated it with Mod Podge,
Then added the gems.
