A little bit of Decoupage

Well I've been saving various glass jars from Jam, honey, pesto, pickles and the like - to create some decoupage vases.

I tried a few different ideas - depending on the shapes...

Painted them all up using two coats of Old White Chalk Paint.

Looking around for inspiration, I found FISHES!!  I cut them out and tested two glue types a specialist decoupage glue and an 'art medium' but I couldn't see there was a difference.

Here they are, finished, varnished in matt... I was thinking about doing something to finish off the necks, but like them looking a bit tatty.

I'm going to do more of this, try some other colours and designs :-)
