I am here with another altered treat jar. This is one that I made in a hurry......all in one day!!! Eeeek! Some girlfriends and I suddenly decided to get together to celebrate a birthday a week early. Whaa-aaat??? Early??? Panic city!!! (Well...this was not actually a whole week early but since we are usually late in our celebrations, this seemed VERY early!! Esp since last year at this time we were evacuated because of the terrible fires which surrounded our community. We didn't celebrate this girlfriend's BD until October!!) Needless to say....I was NOT ready!
I knew I wouldn't have time for lots of extras this time and I also knew I would be gone the day before the party, so I did a very quick Mod Podge job on a discarded jar before I left in the morning. I used a colorful ink-stained baby wipe previously used for cleaning up a messy project and also some reused gift wrap tissue. This base coat had a chance to dry while I was gone and I could resume working on it that night.
|This ribbon is more of an apricot color IRL rather than this pink, but I don't know how to edit my photos well enough to make it look right without everything else looking weird!! Eeek!|
I gessoed the lid and then added some bright colors to the jar and lid by rubbing in some Gelatos. I stamped some scrap tissue with a pear stamp (unidentified from a thrift store) using Versafine ink in Onyx Black and Mod Podged it on. I sealed everything with another coat of Mod Podge and let it dry overnight. In the morning before I left for the brunch party, I put a bow on it and snapped a quick photo.
I usually add more layers and/or embellishments to my altered jars, but I was pleased just to be able to pull this one together in one day. I think my friend liked it and I hope you enjoyed it, too.
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for visiting my blog!!!
