Altered Gravy Pot

Altered Gravy Pot From This to....


This........ Vintage lady holder
Good morning another -5 frosty cold morning sorry i didnt get chance to upload yesterday.So here's the altered gravy pot.This is a swap im hosting alter something from your kitchen cupboard.Now alot of you kept asking how do you get rid of the smell.Well first wash it out this is cardboard pot, dry and then i add a lavendar bag into the pot cover and leave for few days and bingo hey presto no gravy smells!
I first covered the pot with Bo bunny "EtCetera Collection" distressed and stamped some sentiments randomly Artistic Stamper meaning of create.pl;us a couple from Timholtz.

Then i added this gorgeous bit of ribbon with beading work around the top.Ive had this in my crafty stash for while you know the feely touchy lushy one that you dont realy want to use...lol.


I found this beautiful image in my stash that i coated in crackle paint and left to dry for few days .Whilst i got on with the altered domino.which you will see further down in one of the piccies.Once crackle paint had dried i wanted lots on so did take some time you can help along with heat gun but wasnt in a rush so let it crack and dry by it self.I then rubbed down with dry baby wipe and added vintage photo distress inks ontop so the ink went into the cracks.
Hopefully close up in piccy below..(.you may have to click on it to enlarge and see better closeup)
I added tissue tape to cover up the seam of the paper where it over lapped and then added small vellum butterflies punched out with wee pearl on running down the tape


I added various embellishments around the pot ,from tags ,butterflies to charms and few extra pearls onto the ribbon around the top .

The wording DREAM i added glossy accents to to give abit of dimension.


The pot it self is stood on a round wooden piece of board whihc i sanded and then distressed with distress stain vintage photo and the glue guned it onto the base.
Well i hope you like the end result of my recycled altered art gravy pot.Before you throw anything away just take alook and see wether you can alter it!You will be surprised .This is now going off to my swap partner for her to hold her tools,pens ect on her craft desk so do hope she likes it!
