It was dark, rainy and chilly today...
perfect for sitting in my studio and playing with some paint!
A pot of coffee and a cat under my feet made it very cozy, too.
My vintage tilt canister I found at the auction has had another face lift.
Originally I had painted the lid to resemble a floral brown
transferware plate. It was beautiful until I sprayed a layer of clear
protectant over it that yellowed as it dried. Yuck.
I also didn't like the shiny look afterall.
So it turned into something totally different today
and I like it even better.
Sometimes I surprise even myself. ha.
I'm liking how it looks by the old bluebird crock, too.
I also had fun playing around with these chipboard pieces.
I'm thinking they would be cute tags tied onto those
gifts in a jar, you know..the ones with stacked ingredients
in them for the recipient to mix and bake?
Or maybe on jars of preserves.
