PaperArtsy Deconstruction2 Challenge: "Spring Vases"

My second entry into PaperArtsy's Deconstruction Challenge is "Spring Vases".  Using mini jars, I altered them with painting the insides.

My first attempt at painting the insides of my mini jars was a bit disappointing.  The paint didn't move as I expected it would, so I added a little water to thin it.  Still didn't move or cover the glass very well.  I tried some other acrylic paint and it moved much better!

I "picked" some silk flowers and a ribbon for the vase neck and also made a little pad for each vase to sit on using felt and embroidering around the edges. 

My vases are sitting out next to some family pics.
