Altered Almond Jar by Wanda Hentges

Supplies –

Almond Jar – plastic
PID Collage sheets - #183, #343
Tissue paper – white
Ranger Colorwash Spray – lettuce, bottle, butterscotch
Golden fluid matte medium
Tim Holtz Stamp from Creative Muse Collection
Stampington Clearly Impressed stamp from Patterned Flourish Set
StazOn Ink – cactus green
Archival Ink – jet black
Adirondack Ink – butterscotch, terracotta
White copy paper

*Wash and dry jar and cover.
*Spray tissue paper with colorwash sprays and dry.
*Crumple tissue paper and lay back out.
*Glue tissue paper to jar with matte medium by putting medium on jar, laying on tissue paper, and putting more medium over tissue paper… do this in small sections. You can also tear the tissue paper into smaller pieces and glue them on rather than a large piece. Let dry.
*Stamp “Live the Life” on copy paper with black ink, sponge on Adirondack inks, dry well with a heat tool, tear out, glue to jar with matte medium. Yes, the Adirondack ink will run a bit but you can only see it on the paintbrush, not on the jar.
*Cut out birds and glue to bottle with matte medium.
*Stamp flourish with Stazon ink. I just pressed my fingers on the back of the stamp and the stamp clung to them, pressed it on the ink pad and then on the jar… this allowed me to form the stamp to the jar better.
*Coat jar again with matte medium and let dry.
*Sponge Stazon ink onto cover and also onto the jar where the cover screws on.

** Use the jar either as a bank or you could remove the cover, put some stones in the bottom for weight and use it as a vase.
