Altered 'Graze Box' "Wish you were Here"

I have being stashing away a few  'Graze Boxes'   Never quite sure
what I was going to use them for. Then it came to me. I had pictures of  visits to the seaside a couple of years ago. Without further ado ..... here are my finished boxes of trips to Southwold and Lowestoft.
I must add that I have had a great deal of fun putting these together.
 I stained the 'Yacht Photo' using Distress Inks Pads It is placed on the underside of the inner Lid.


Boxes secured with Twine
Photographs stored under the 'Inner Lid'

Altered Painted Jar

After seeing several tutorials in recent crafting magazines I decided to have a go with 'altering' a plain clear glass jar. Firstly by swirling acrylic paint on the inside of the jar .. Like this Painted Mason Jar
The inspiration for wanting to have a go was this Beautiful Creation ... I decided I wanted to feature the 'Captured Fairy' on a tag rather than on the inside of the jar ..
