it's ornamental

Today I want to share with you an altered lid from a mason jar with 8 cm diameter. I turned it to a fridge magnet for my sister's kitchen.

I started with priming all with gesso, then covered the lid with texture paste through Tim Holz  stencil. I coloured all with Inka Gold paints: apricot and cooper and applied rust effect mixture from Stamperia.  
The gypsum angel was also coloured this way. 

To finish my fridge magnet I added some coloured and glittered chipboards, die cuts and plastic berries. 

I would like to enter my piece to the following challenges:

  5. Lula, this is such a stunning transformation of a humble jar lid! The color and the texture is just amazing! I'm sitting here scratching my head on how you did the stenciling--directly on the lid, or did you do it on tissue and apply the tissue? Anyway you did it, it's right up my alley with the re-purposing and all that grungy texture! Thank you for joining our It's Ornamental challenge at Anything But Cute. Hugs! Sara Emily DT
