Home Decor-Altered Vase

Hello it’s Heather today. Just wanted to share a pictorial on a little mixed media project I have recently finished.

Here is a vase I altered to match me new kitchen. Our new kitchen is very natural in colors and I wanted it to match and add little pop color. So here goes my creative process.

Here is the vase. Huge!

( I apologize ahead of time, I do a ton of scraping at night when the house is quiet and the kids are in bed, some of the pictures might be dark.)

I painted the outside with gesso.

I used some modeling paste and added some texture. I used a variety of stencils you can find in the store.

I picked out a ton of goodies to put on there.

After picking and choosing I found some fun stuff to alter. I used a boat load of Gel medium on this project.
