Well my camera has been on a whirlwind tour of the west coast the past two weeks as I left it in my girlfriends car! Finely picked it up over the weekend so now I can share my latest creation for my secret sister, Scrapwritter. I have to credit my secret sister, Scrap Smart aka Suzie Miller for inspiring me with the beautiful piece she actually made me in this swap. You can find her gorgeous jar in her gallery located at: http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=galleries&u=234817&m=view&id=3905919&type=-1
I was mesmerized by the beautiful finish on Suzie's creation and she achieved it by using Modge Podge Gold finish. I didn't realize that Modge Podge came in different finishes, but rather than purchase a ready made finish, I decided to just add some gold glitter and that worked just fine. I used regular matte finish to apply my paper, then used the glittered mix to seal everything nicely. I used lots of trinkets and charms to embellish this piece along with Prima's new zipper flowers which I just love. Added a bit of ribbon and chain to secure various keys and other trinkets. I sincerely had a great time making this jar for my friend and hope that she will enhoy it for many years to come!
Thank you for dropping by my gallery and leaving me a little feedback. Wishing you all an awesome week ahead. Make it a happy day sweet friends! :)
