Hi everyone - It is Sponsor Spotlight time again at Our Creative Corner!
Our generous sponsor this month is Nicecrane Designs
I chose some gorgeous images to use! I had a small glass jar that I thought might make a nice tea light holder. It was put away for the right time and when I saw these images from Nicecrane Designs I knew I had found the perfect thing to decorate the tea light holder.
The first thing I did was change the images to sepia, which is very easy to do using any photo editing program.
I then cut out the images with an oval cutter that I have. I stuck all the images onto the glass jar with Matt Multi Medium.
I also used one plain paper oval that I had stamped 'Joyeux Noel' and some flourishes in Potting Soil Archival ink. This was stuck onto the glass with multi medium too.
Then I painted all around the the glass jar with a couple of coats of Nougat Fresco paint. When doing this I wasn't planning on being too 'neat' - I wanted it to have a slightly antique, chipped and cracked appearance.
After dabbing the paint with some Gathered Twigs DI, I covered the painted area with a coat of crackle glaze. When the glaze was dry and crackled, I rubbed in some Chocolate Pudding Fresco Paint and wiped away with a baby wipe.
The jar was then given three coats of matte varnish.
Lace was stuck to the rim of the jar and a bit of Vintage Photo DI was smudged around the edges.
A ribbon and a rose was stuck onto the jar
.......and there we have a Vintage Christmas decoration!
