Jo Myhill inspired

Good morning lovelies, happy Mother's Day to all you mum's out there. I hope you all have a fab day.

Since Jo blogged her pot of tulips on the Paparr Artsy blog I've have been itching to play along. I was blown away of how she altered the pot and the tulips looked so good. You can see the lovely Jo's here.

So here is my attempt, I showed my mum my pot and her comment was 'did you make that' which made me laugh.

I started with a teracota pot as I could not find a tin pot anywhere.

 I used most of the colours from the special addition fresco paints until I was happy with the colour. I then used the rusting powder and some embossing powers to add more texture. I added some frantage which was recommended to me as a great product by Jo and she was right I love it.

Now onto my tulips I - I decided to make three for my pot in a similar way but keeping the colours in the purple range as I wanted this pot to sit in my dining room.

And here it is - thank you for looking and as always love to read you comments xx



  1. Debs this really pretty and your pot is gorgeous!!

  2. oh wow, your tulips are fabulous - so is the pot, but I really like your tulips! Great colours. Fancy your dining room being a purple-y colour!!

  3. This looks so pretty, Debs, I love that sentiment and it is such a great idea to have it as a tulip petal like that. I also love those smooth pebbles arranged around the base of the pot. I loved Jo's project and it's been great seeing all the different interpretations of it. Your lacy terracotta planter looks amazing. I love the colour combo you picked. It must look beautiful in your living room. Julie Ann xxx

  5. Wow, they look great, the terracotta looks fab and I agree the pebbles at the bottom really make it as a home decor piece. Jo xx

  6. Oh my Debs, stunning and inspired project indeed. Love your colour palette!

    Hope you enjoying Mothers Day:-) xxx

  7. Fab project. Love terracotta pots. Looks good with the lace and I really like the idea of the sentiment in the tulips. Xx

  8. Love the grunged up pot, the Frantage does indeed look fantastic. The multi-layered tulips are gorgeous too!

  9. Love the make over your terracotta pot has been treated to Debs. It looks great and I must give that frantage a whirl! Your tulips are amazing and very clever with the quote making up one of the petals. Lovely and unique home decor piece.
