Well the Pop-Up Pots are on their way to the ladies who joined in. This time there were more sent abroad then to the UK! There were a few who ran out of time to join in, but thanks to the internet we can get to see them all and enjoy them even if we couldn't take part. You can see a slide show of the pots here, where you can see all sides and the popped up pots. The Pop-up Pot project itself is here. Here is a little preview of the closed pots though;
Below is my pot with a lovely Rumi quote;
To get the sea effect, I used modelling past - just smearing it across the paper with a palette knife and my finger. I then put some dollops of PVA glue on the crest of a few waves and sprinkled micro beads on. Below is a picture of the same thing I have done on a board.
I then used Fresco paints to randomly paint sea colours across it. The paper had warped a bit when I finished, so I flattened it in a book under a heavy draw unit for a day, and then cut it into strips and mounted it on heavy board. When the pot was complete, I added sparkly dots around the top and bottom with Cosmic Twinkles.
It's always such a treat to receive all the swaps and take the photos of them. A big warm hug and thank you to all the ladies who joined in.
Love and smiles,
