Creative Artiste November Challenge ~ #77 Anything Mixed Media Goes

 Hello Creative Friends 

Time to welcome you all again to
our theme is ALWAYS *Anything Mixed Media Goes*

This month I share another of my quirky handmade pots 
inspired again by Toni Burt and her amazing pottery skills.

Created using an empty glass pudding pot and metal lid destined 
for the recycle bin. I moulded clay around the glass pot and lid.
Leaving space for a magnetic die brush to sit, decorated with rice paper, 
making marks into the clay. Sadly during the drying process the clay split 
leaving a large crack in the outer clay. Continuing to paint up with black 
acrylic, dry brushing with antique silver and a protective varnish coating. 

I chose to make a feature of that crack adding a fashioned paper buckle, 
hardware to compliment the brads with its rice paper and colour combo. 

I'm really pleased with this little pot, 
it's proving very handy in my workspace. 

If you have a love for mixed media and use more than 
three mediums in your creations please come and share your 
mixed media creations with the Creative Artiste team HERE.. 

Wishing you all a safe and creative month ahead. 

Hugs Tracey xx

I was so intrigued when the photograph of this make showed up in my feed! As a lover of storage I just love that you upcycled that jar and lid and created this wonderful storage pot. How clever of you to incorporate the crack into the design too, the little buckle looks perfect. Another fabulous make Tracey, I love it! Anne xxx

Your creativity is mind blowing and so out there. I would never think of doing anything as amazing as this piece is. Loved reading how it all came together and even the crack is just so right.
