Altered Jar - Shabby Chic

Hey there
I have another Design Team Project for Imagine if.....
This is a little jar I altered and shabbied up.

The first thing I did with this jar was paint it with acrylic.  I just rougly brushed it on in 2 colours...marshmellow and manilla.
I then gave it a bit of a sand with some sand paper to give it a distressed look.

The laser cut chip board shoe I used from Imagine if is just so gorgeous and how I got the crackle effect was not with a crackle medium, it was buy giving it a light coat of acrylic (manilla) and then I heat embossed it with some Utee, followed by another coat of acrylic and then I blasted it with my heat gun and it created this crackle effect.

I had so much fun embellishing the rest of the jar with left over crochet doilie scraps.
Paper flowers,pearls, a beautiful little crochet heart my firend Kimi from Unique Scrappiness sent me.
I love the way this little jar came out and look forward to making more;

I have been using some really unique laser cut embellishments and I get them all from Imagine if....  Be sure to come and check the Facebook Page out and see creations from all the talented designers :)

Here is a vid...taking a closer look at this little altered jar.

See you all soon with another fun creation :)
