More Craft Storage - Upcycled Plant Pot

Back again with another little craft storage idea....this time I needed somewhere for my paintbrushes etc. So I upcycled this little terracotta pot...
Finished Pot

I used the following products:-
Indigo Blu Gee-Soo Good! White Gesso, Artists Acrylic Paint Aladin, Flitter Glu 
Royal Peacock Gilding Flakes and Butterfly Stamp.
Cosmic Shimmer Embossing Powder Tropic Pearl
Gems and Pearls

Plain Pot

First I painted it with the Gee-soo on the outside and inside rim, then left to dry..

Once dry I painted it with the Aladin paint and left to dry...

After this was dry I added the gilding flakes to the rim insde and out using flitter glu, adding the gems and pearls next. I then carefully stamped the butterfly on to the front using VersaMark and Tropic Pearl embossing powder..making sure the pot did not overheat, wasn't wanting the pot to crack!! I applied the heat a bit at a time.....

Voila...one new little storage pot!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving lovely comments
See you next time!
