It has been hectic here and there are things I should be doing that aren't getting done but while having a coffee break the other day I came across this amazing person on you tube and after watching her mixed media bottle project thought "I have all that stuff out the back" so of course once the seed had been planted, I just had to go and have a try.
I went looking for the mould I knew I had of the faces Rachel used, then thought, hang on I have a box of polymer clay bits with some faces I burnt earlier. There was also a pair of hands from a long abandoned project. The brain kept churning and I thought I might use some of the moulded paper pieces I have stashed away too and why not see what is left in the little blue box full of paper and card pieces from when I had my Cougar up and running for that brief period of time. So I ended up with the collection above and went about randomly chucking them at my pot.
Looks pretty ugly
Then the really fun part started when I added layers of different paints and medium.
Here is my finished pot, much more interesting than the empty coffee jar I started with.
All the different pieces really added some lovely texture.
And here is some of the "stuff" I used
You can watch the You tube video yourself and make sure you check out some of the wonderful things Rachel does. She also has a fascinating looking blog which I haven't had time to look at yet, that will have to wait for another day. Now I really must get back to the stuff I should be doing, my play time is over for now.
