DT post for Creative Artiste

Hi everyone - a new month so a new DT project for Creative Artiste. The sponsors this month are Foil Play & Di's Digis.
This colour palette that the DT used for inspiration:-

Butterflies & flowers are the theme this month.

I decided to try some Folk Art painting. I found an empty jar - well nearly empty! I found my acrylics and picked out the ones that matched the colour palette. Painted the background, then painted the little flowers around the jar, adde some leaves & a few hearts dotted around. Talking of dots - placed some around the base of the jar.
Finished off with a coat of decopatch to seal it all, added some butterflies & wound some twine around the top of the jar.

I thought it would be a cool pot to keep my brushes in.

Hop over to the Creative Artiste blog & check out the other DT members lovely makes this month  - enter the challenge you might win! Good luck!

Thanks for stopping by.
