Roses are Red... Craft Attitude Vase

I've been having so much fun playing with the Craft Attitude film this month.  It's so much fun to see how you can transform plain everyday items using this film paired with Altered Pages collage sheets. 


Today I wanted to show you how I transformed a plain old pottery vase into a real show stopper...  I found this vase in the bottom of a mystery box I bought at an auction this past summer.  You know those boxes filled with everything you can think of.  Well, this vase was just a plain white vase and I originally thought about just giving it away but I'm so glad I didn't.  

I started off by printing an entire sheet of vintage rose images from the collage sheet - Paper Roses. I sized the roses between 1/2" - 2.5" tall.  Those were adhered to the top and bottom portion of the vase.


Next I printed off a frame from the collage sheet - ATC Decorative Borders and "Paris" from the Paris collage sheet on a sheet of Craft Attitude film.  Those were glued down to a strip of burlap that I further embellished with tiny pearls.



It still needed something so I rubbed on a bit of Inka Gold Guilders Paste to the ridges on the base of the vase.  I also painted the upper third inside the vase with gold acrylic paint.  I also watercolored colored a few ribbon roses with Niji's Pearl Watercolor paints.


And here's how it turned out....






Hope this inspires you to pull out a plain every day item and spruce it up with some Craft Attitude Film and Altered Pages collage images. 

Have a wonderful day!!
