Some years ago I had a plain globe vase that I painted. No, this isn't the vase, but it was similar
And this is how I painted it, during that time I was experimenting with crackle, and it didn't do very well, but I liked the lacy affect.
so I stuck an arrangement in it and moved it here...
That was then, this is now.
I've since changed my color scheme, so I decided to repaint it...
I primed both the vase and flower with some spray primer I had left over
I liked how I could still see all of the irregular formations in my vase, and how the colors still popped through in the flower.
I then painted the vase a Grey Blue
Then chalked and later stressed it (you can see the specks of gold peeking through).
I placed it on the floor in my bedroom along with a mirror I had leaning against the wall, and after some thought decided to let the flower lean over into the mirror.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to LET YOUR CREATIVITY FLOW!
