MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Decorated button jar

I got some lovely shaped spice jars from Ikea some time last year with the idea of altering them to hold my supply of buttons/charms and or ribbons. Well I finally got round to doing one of them and I am going to love doing the others.
I used a gorgeous charm image from Lisas Altered Art as my focal point ...on top of some script paper doodled with gold.

I put some angel hair behind it so it would look a little bit more delicate...

and I finished off by decorating the lid of my jar with sticky ribbon, ordinary ribbon, mesh and half pearls.
Now all I have to do is find a home for it... think it's time to have some shelves put up :D Don't want to hide it away... I think it's much to pretty for that.

Fantastic, I use jars myself for buttons and bows but never think to jazz them up, thanks for your inspiring ideas.
