Altered art

Hello everyone!

Today I'm sharing an altered container. I painted it with gesso first and then used red acrylic paint. After it dried I decorated with embellishments. Since I'm planning to use it as a pot for my plants, I minimized the embellishments. The lady bugs are especially for outdoors.

The yellow rose is handmade with Pooja's instructions on how she made handmade flowers. I liked the petals of her flowers so much, and gave it a try.  The letters are self adhesive stickers.

Thanks for your sweet visit today and the lovely comments.

You could also keep all sorts of goodies in here for your craft work and it would make you smile to yourself whenever you saw it but it will be a great plant pot too. Thanks for sharing with us at Unstampabelles.
