Try It Tuesday~Remember this old bucket?

Hi guys!!
I have a cool re-purposed bucket for you.
I'm not sure if I have posted this picture, but it was one of the things I got at my moms a few weeks ago.

I wanted to use it for magazines so this is what I did.

I painted a coat of Gesso (Claudine Hellmuth) on the front and let it dry.
I then used a stencil by Clear Scraps ( brick wall) with modeling paste~love the look and texture it added to the bucket.  Then I painted the front with flowers using some acrylic paints.

I tied some cool stuff on, um~ like the 6 brass stencil and old key ( more past junkin' finds).
When everything was good and dry I stamped over the area with a background stamp by Darkroom Door called  Chicken wire

After I was done I sealed the bucket with the Matte multi-medium by Claudine Hellmuth.
Thanks for stopping by~
See ya soon~
