A Jar Full Of Candy

lördag 1 november 2014

Hello friends!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. And what is this that I show then? Well, it´s a jar full of candy that I´m going to give to a special person this weekend.

Here where I live you can buy candy and pick up what you want to have in bags or candy jars. I wanted my jar would get a more personal look and it felt right with an autumn theme ... so here it is.

First I painted it with Gesso and a thin layer gold Acrylic paint.

I made the bow from some scrap paper, then I went loose with a bunch of flowers on top.

The firs was cut out with Memory Box frosted Christmas Trio die. 

 The leaves was made by first cuting them out from Distress inked papers with a couple of different dies. Then crumple them a little bit and give them a thick layer of clear embossing pouder and heat in.

I love the leaves:) I finished of with a piece of washi tape at the bottom and some red pearls to resemble red berries (cranberries maybe).
That´s it for today. Have a great weekend!
Hugs, Birgit
