Got some coins?

Hello dear friends.  Stopping by to show you this project. It is a "piggy" bank... only without the piggy.  LOL

This was published in last issue of "Papeles y Más" magazine. 

It is really a baby's food jar which was recycled.  I had lots of fun painting it with acrylic paint as base, then when dried, I stamped some images and painted them. The idea was to make it look kind of vintage and make the impression these images were painted directly and not stamped first, so imperfection was required. 


I stamped the images by inking the stamps and rolling the jar on it. It was sooo cool. 

I replaced the top with a patterned paper scalloped circle with the hole in the center, to insert coins. 
Also tied some cord around the neck when completely dried. 


I also sprayed some pinky color as a final and natural touch/look. 



Hope you liked my project. I will link this post to Unity Stamp Co's Friday Friendswith  Flair, so make sure to leave a comment for a chance to win with Unity. 

And come back and take a look at what makes me happy post from yesterday here:  http://winecheesescrapbooking.blogspot.com/2014/09/this-is-my-happy.html?m=1
