Springtime pots, grunge style!

How about some springtime pots!

Grunge style!

This project was inspired by my friend Lynn. She is so talented. Not to be confused with my other talented friend Lynn. This Lynn I get to see now and then. The other one not so much.

Just take some of these inexpensive potting pots...........

Turn them into these...........


This one is done by adding Ranger's distress crackle paint (rock candy) when dry rub with distress iink rusty hinge. I loved the way this one turned out. It looks rusty. I added a grungeboard element and stamped it.

This one is done with shabby shutters and rubbed with vintage photo. Stamped a flower on muslin and water colored it. Snap in center.

This one was done with spiced marmalade crackle paint, then rubbed with vintage photo. I do scratch off a little of the crackle to give it that shabby look. I added a torn sheet of music, wrap with twine and added a grunge bunny, button.

This one I used rock candy again but I added crushed olives distress inks to this one. Kind of gives it a patina look to it. Add lace and buttons.

Here they are together. Not a great picture my batteries were wearing out and I wanted to get all the pictures taken.

Well I have been drawing more of my doll pictures and have been painting up a storm. Here is one sketch that I am looking forward to painting very soon. I love Halloween and this one is going to be fun.
This one is almost done. She is so cute. Check out her monkey she will be holding as soon as she gets a hand.

That's it. Hope you enjoyed!
I hope you were able to go see me at Studio 490's blog yesterday. Kinda like being a guest but not. Lots and lots of nice comments, thanks Wendy!
Off to go paint................. if I don't I will not have things to share.
Off you go...................
Make someones day with a smile!
