Patina finish jar

Hi :  One of the looks I love is that crusty patina finish of old weathered metal, so when Finnabair came out with a paste collection I started hunting for it.  I got my hands on the collection last week.  I decided I'd start small.   I had this spice jar that had a vanilla bean in it.   I covered it with gesso so everything would stick.
Then I glued on some Tim Holtz idea-ology flowers and some ribbon trim at the top.
Then I started applying the paste as Finnabair showed in her video.  this is my result.  so fun and so easy!! Hope you like it!! for an extra touch I add some Finnabair wax paste.  

MK&S with Flowers

Hi :  It's been awhile !!!  I carved out a little time to put together a scrapbook page.  I used this gorgeous paper line by bo bunny called Aryia's garden.  I've only been able to find  the collection pack!  I used some Tim Holtz distress stain  (Picked Raspberry and Tumbled glass ) and water to make it drip down the page, some Dusty Attic chipboard corner which I painted with gesso and Peeled paint distress ink, and  a few idea-ology industrious sticker.   Simon Says Monday Challenge is- " Splash it on".  So of course I'm entering in on the fun.  I hope you like it!!
