Spots and Dots at Things to Alter - May Challenge

Afternoon my lovelies, as promised I am back with my DT project for:-

Here is my Project:- It is a coffee jar, re-invented to hold my paint brushes - before I started with Things to Alter I had 2 - then they grew, and I stored them like this:-

You can see I have babies in the family, LOL

And now, I store my brushes like this:-

Picture 1
I have used an Old Coffee Jar
Painted it with Gesso, then added Black Acrylic Paint. (all my Acrylic paint, bought from Every Crafts a Pound)
Did a couple of coats of the Paint, then Added Deco Art Gold Glitter Paint, (you all know how much I love my sparkle)
I used the Alphabets from Things to Alter
The Alphabets were  treated with a coat of Gesso, then several different colours of Paint, I then added the Gold Sparkle paint to them.
The Dots were treated with Gesso, then I painted on Tonic Studio - Nuvo Crystal Drops,
used the Heat Gun to splat it around a little, and quite liked the result.
Finally added a bit of Black and White Dotty ribbon from my stash.

Some more pictures of the Paint Brushes Jar:-

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:-

Thank you again for visiting, hopefully, if I have done things right, there will be a couple of projects, blogging, whilst I am away...will be back on the 8th May.  Have a wonderful day and week, love to all.
