Romantic Altered Jar

This gorgeous Jar was appropriated from my work it had some chewy toffees in it and I couldn't wait for them to get eaten so I could get my hands on this beauty!!

I used some very pretty Anna Griffin paper and in typical Anna style lots of ribbon and flowers to match.

I haven't used perfect pearls before and bought this lovely soft pink colour especially, however I found myself trying to flatten the pointy tip they leave behind!! If it is possible to do dots without a point can someone please let me know the secret!! .....and a few droplets of glossy accents/diamond glaze on the silk flowers to look like dew drops to finish it off.......voila....easy peasy!!!

Note to Brenda: I am using your flowers again!! Thankyou xxx

Love Ruth xxx

Hi Ruth, Lovely job on the jar!! What a great "green" gift idea! I love the soft romantic colors you chose.

That's beautiful (but poor you having to eat those toffees!).

Have you tried twisting the perfect pearls tube just as you lift? If might stop the pointy bits, not that it's spoilt it.

Hi Ruth, you've got some fab pieces on your blog, love the shadow box for the 9th anniversary and Gerogia is so sweet and very photogenic, still love that photo you have of her splashing in the puddles with her wellies on!!!!
