Mixed media "Amazing" butterfly jar

Hello Crafty Friends!  Kathy Jo here sharing a bright and cheerful upcycled mini-jar.  The jar was too cute to put in recycling so I decided to create a happy and inspirational jar for my work desk.  The stamps "You are Amazing":
You Are Amazing - Mounted
and "Be Yourself" (from The Woods Would Be Very Silent stamp set):
The Woods Would be Very Silent - Set of 5 Stamps - Mounted
were perfect for the project!

After cleaning the jar, white gesso was layered.  Distress Crackle (in Picket Fence) was applied and air dried.  Next Distress Spray (Mowed Lawn) and Dylusions Spray (Cut Grass) were both spritzed on the bottle.  Inka Gold (in Gold) was added along various edges.  Last, white paint was flicked randomly on the bottle.  The bottle was now ready for the papers.
Both sentiments were stamped onto Graphic 45 papers, fussy cut and mounted on Graphic 45's Nature's Sketchbook papers.  Butterflies were also fussy cut and layered as shown.  Below are photos of the completed jar:
 The stamps make me smile!
 Such a bright and cheerful jar...will be so pretty on my desk.
 Be Yourself is such a gorgeous stamp!
Thanks so much for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed the upcycle project.  :)

Have a happy, crafty day!
Big Hugs,
Kathy Jo
