Altered Tea Cup

 As you all may probably noticed Gabrielle Pallacco's Mixed media Nature project on canvas back. I too love the birds and nests. Here I took a tea cup saucer set and altered with you guessed it birds house.....I have seen so many beautiful ones, so i thought i should try.... even i could n't resist to making this project. I loved doing them and i wished I had more teacups. Here i used Rose flowers, dry leaves, Spanish moss and other material that I have collected through the month back. I hope to make a few more and gift them.

 1. first step is to give the cup & saucer a couple of coats of Gesso.
  2.When the coats of paint are dry, cover the whole area of the cup & saucer with a very thin layer of Mode podge using the washed out paint brush. Lay the napkin piece on whole are. It will immediately adhere to the glue (mode podge). The tip here is to work gently but quickly. Finally coat the whole of the place with a thin layer of  matt varnish Mode podge .And use the washy tap on corner side of cup & saucer.
 3. Connect the cup & saucer with strong metal wire ( melt glue stick )
4. After all decorate with stuff  


Anyway, let me know what you think and if you're going to find something to cover in Mod Podge, washy tape and Napkins.

Have a crafty week!
