Mod Podge Craft Session...

Mod Podge is such fun stuff...
and I had so much creating a few new décor pieces...
The other day I painted in the garden! 
A terracotta pot and saucer...
with a little bit of white.
Then today gathered together 
all the bit and pieces I thought I would need...
mod podge, string, printed images, a painted pot, a jar, and some beads...
 a bit of bling and some pretty fabric too...
 But what to create?
 I had seen a tutorial on how to make a DIY French Country style pot at 
'Heaven's Walk' blog...
so thought I'd give it a go.
For the full tutorial visit:
 And I had also seen fabric mod podged onto a tin to make a vase on 'Pinterest'...
and that's what I created first. 
And at the same time pasted a 'Graphic's Fairy' French typography graphic on the front of the flip lid jar... 
 Fabric on old hot chocolate tin, and graphic on jar...
Don't you adore the fabulous graphics available?
Have you seen the wonderful graphics at 'The Graphic's fairy'?
Visit Karen and have a look:
 On the bottom of the tin another strip of pretty violet fabric
with the top edge cut with pinking shears for a pretty effect was mod podged .
 'Mouse' said "Craft party...where?"
"Oh here...can I play too?"
 "I LOVE CRAFT!"
 "Beads and wire are soooo much FUN!"
 'Mouse' you really are a pain! 
 How can I create beaded pretties with you trying to eat everything?
 Wire is bad for kitty cats, you know!
 Eventually the game of cat and mouse was won...
and the 'Mouse' did not win!  
A beaded and jewelled bit of bling
 was created to accessorise the mod podged fabric tin...
 Next another  'Graphic's Fairy' French typography graphic 
was cut out to mod podge onto the painted pot...
 This one is a mirror or reverse graphic...
What you do is put lots of mod podge onto the printed side of the graphic,
 press into position on the pot...
(NOTE: DON'T PASTE OVER THE GRAPHIC once placed on the pot as shown in this photo, 
....visit tomorrows post to find out why!)
Then WAIT!
Yes - WAIT - a whole 24 hours...
With no poking or peeking...
which is next to impossible if you are the most impatient person in the world!
But wait I am going to...
because I really want this to work.
Meantime - the graphic on the jar had dried...
so into the cute little jar went the wooden pegs.
(This is for my Laundry revamp currently in progress!)
Why don't you pop back and visit the blog tomorrow to see the end results
at the 'Mod Podge Creation Reveal'?
