Altered Decoupaged Jar and Box

Hello Creatives!

DT Harshada on the blog today! I am back with yet another altered project with a festive touch. Itsy Bitsy’s home brand Little Birdie has launched beautiful filament decoupage papers and you can find some wonderful themes in the collection. I am going to use a beautiful Indian print for today’s creation.

For this project, I used the beautiful Indian themed print ‘Royal Ride‘. This one has a touch of Rajasthani art form and I wanted to give an antique and royal effect to my projects.

For my base, I used a jam glass jar and a beautiful pine wooden decorable box from the store.

First I used Little Birdie Acrylic Gesso White to prime both the bases. I used a sponge applicator to apply gesso on to the bases for getting a good coverage and to avoid brush strokes.

After the Gesso dried completely, I used fussy cut camel and horse designs from the filament decoupage paper pack and adhered them on the top of the box and on the jar using Little Birdie Deco Magic Glue.

After the glue dried, I worked with Texture Paste. I dabbed the paste on to the top and bottom of the jar and on the top of the box. I applied it with my fingers to add some texture.

Thereafter, I painted the dried texture paste with Salsa Red chalk paint. After the chalk paint dried, I coloured some parts of it with black acrylics to create some interest and depth.

After the paint dried, I brushed metallic waxes- Aqua Sheen and Copper Blaze on the textured part.

I used Deco Varnish to seal both my projects.

To add more interest, I adhered a decorative zardosi cord and handmade flowers Natalia Boho Vibes using silicon glue.

I also decorated the box further by drawing mehendi designs on it using a metallic cone from my stash.

Some more pictures of the project.

I hope you like my project. Don’t forget to participate in the ongoing blog challenge.
