I am a lover of aqua-blue in any shade. Pale or deep in colour, slightly green or on the baby blue side... I just love it.
When browsing on Pinterest some time ago, I saw an idea to emulate those beautiful aqua-blue Mason jars, now quite a collectible item. (along with their collectible price!) So, I decided to give it a go, using the ingredients I already had at home.
I used a very basic little old Vegemite jar... use whatever you have in the cupboard.
To some Matt medium, I added some aqua - blue ink. ( Other people who have tried this have recommended food- dye and mod-podge... but I used what I had in my art box.)
I painted the outside of the jar and the result was a soft, pretty aqua.
The strong blue thins out to pale and pretty when applied to the jar. I have only painted one coat on the outside so far.
Much prettier than a plain old jar! I need to do a few more coats both on outside and maybe on the inside.

I guess you could do this in an array of colours to suit your taste and decor.
Today, I am linking up to I Heart Macro hosted by Lori... head on over and check out all those lovely macro and close-up photos.
Hoping you are enjoying your weekend,
