It’s Mandi here with another Mix it Up post for you.
Today I am sharing a mason jar I decorated with the lovely Joy Girl stamp.
I LOVE making these mason jars.
I started off by chalk painting a large mason jar.
Mine needed two coats.
Next I took my black Archival Ink and stamped my girl on to the jar.
It is totally fine if you do not get the whole image or it over stamps a little.
Next I am colouring her outfit using these Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens
I like the light sparkle they leave on the chalk paint.
They do look patchy when you first apply then they dry pretty even.
Next for her skin tone I am using acrylic paint.
I mixed two drops of Cream and one drop of Cinnamon to get the the colour I wanted.
Then for her hair colour I just used an Archival Black Pen.
I then stamped some of the snowflakes from the kit around the edge of the girl.
Next I used some Glitterific paint and coated the entire jar.
This is the clear version that has holographic glitter pieces through it.
I used a foam brush to apply the paint as it is quite thick.
Use just one stoke of the paint over the girl so that the glitter pens do not smear.
I found that if I went back and forth with the brush they would start to bleed.
Finally when the paint dried I added some red chunky twine around the top of the jar.
Here is another look at the finished jar. It is really glittery in real life.
I hope you like my Festive Mason Jar.
