Photo in a Jar

Welcome crafty friends!
I'm absolutely happy and proud, because I'm the newest teamie
 on the amazing Designteam from Calico Craft Parts :-).
I'm a big fan from this MDF shapes, because they have an individual design with fine contours and shades, giving them a personal touch.

Today I want to share with you an idea for a home decoration piece, 
it's also perfect as gift for a lovely family member.
It's very simple and made quickly, you only have to pay attention to the size of the individual parts, so that they fit through the narrow neck of the bottle. The easiest way is to work with tweezers.

 I use a transparent glass bottle and poured a lot of Baltic Sea sand into it, then I cut a beach chair from a photo. The newest Seahorse & Seashell Collage Size M was so awesome for me, because I love seahorses in all types and sizes.

more details can you find here

 I didn't want to paint them at first, because I was afraid to destroy the fine contour lines.
That's why I decided to use Antiquing cream, a water based colour from DecoArt in Titanium White, Patina Green and Raw Umber. For the seahorse a little bit orange water colour. In addition on some places Decosand glued with Heavy Gel Medium.
Thanks for your visit!
Enjoy your day!
