on it goes. It's stuck with me all year round and it's so rewarding. So for this project i took two jar lids. Sprayed them with traditional gold spray on both sides. This took several coats and in between i painted some red acrylic paint and then sprayed over the top again with the gold, i intended to distress but the only sand paper in the house was stripping back more than i wanted so i left them with the odd hint of red showing through. On the inside i rustled up two hama bead pattern kinda snowflakes and glued them on either side. I added some red rik rak (is that what you call it?) to hang it with and then glued it together. I added some rik rak round the frame of both lids just to finish off. So what do you think? I see scope for more but this late in the day i might be pushing my luck lol alongside my other unfinished, or not yet started festive projects. Happy December :)
