Ching-Chou Kuik - Misty Allure along with Visible Image

 When we recently had a pot of Azera coffee I told my family I wanted the pot to recycle.  I knew exactly what I wanted it for, something for my friend and if we got another pot, one for me!!  I painted the pot first with two layers of gesso and then some blue/purple acrylic paint. 
 The backing papers I used were from my Perfect Papercrafting Companions General CD. On the plain purple paper I used a grunge flourish from Visible Image that I won recently in a challenge.  I have used a Sweet Pea Stamps image by Ching-Chou Kuik called "Misty Allure".  It is available as a digital stamp and rubber stamp.
 The "create with your soul" sentiment is a stamp from Visible Image.  I used it on the opposite side of the pot to the image.
 I added lace and ribbon around the top and bottom of the pot.  I have finished it off with some die-cut flowers (cut from papers from the CD), bought flowers, Prima butterflies (which were coloured with my purple Graph'it pen as an orange/yellow butterfly didn't match the colour scheme!!), branch with gems on it and pearl brads. 
This pot is just the right height to sort my tacky glue/Tonic glue to keep it facing down.
Perfect for my friend to keep her glue in.  I've just got to make one for myself now!!!

I am entering this decorated pot into the following challenges:

CD Sunday - Ribbon and bows
Pan Pastel - Anything goes
Pile it On - Ribbon
Top Tip Tuesday - Girly challenge
Craft Room Challenge - Ribbons and lace
Crafty Girls Challenge - Anything goes

Kym, Glad I'm first to comment on your beautiful 'up-cycled' project. Thank you for joining us at Simply Create Too for our Mother's Day/Female Challenge. Is Azerra coffee just in UK???--don't think I've seen it in our grocery--but I'm going to look very carefully because I want to make this project too. I have my glue upside-down in a coffee cup--this is much prettier.

I love your recycling. I don't think that we do it enough but it always feels good when you have transformed something that would probably be thrown away.
Thank you for joining in with us at Cd Sunday.
