Shabby Chic Vase (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

Sooooo, I found this ceramic style vase/urn "thingie" (LOL) at a thrift store and it had very old, ugly, fabric flowers inside...which I promptly removed! The vase was painted a blue/green color with cream swooshes...I'm guessing so it to look distressed. I began painting the entire piece with Prima Texture Paste in White Crackle. It turned out great...allowing the original color tone to bleed through just slightly...which is perfect, because I wanted the rest of the goodies to be in colors of blues and whites. I chose flowers from my stash which include some from Prima, the Stationers Desk collection and I also chose some wonderful Prima embellishments such as Ingvild Bolme's Shabby Chic Treasures metal heart gears, metal clock face, metal clock hands, metal street sign, resin oval frame and from Finnabair's Vintage Mechanicals collection, the metal skeleton clock. I also used Bead Landing gears and a large 3-d metal heart from Michaels. All the embellishments that were bronze, silver or gold in color, I painted white to match the color scheme. The beautiful Blue fabric flower...came from Renea's shop, however, it was originally white. I was able to use Lindy's Stamp Gang shimmer spray in Whale Watch Blue to change the color of the flower to suit my project. In the cluster of clocks and frames in the center of the project, you will notice a metal Baroque frame. This is from Renea's  shop. It's actually a beautiful antique gold and comes in a set of 2. But I was able to paint it white...still so pretty! The Beautiful Glitter Glass butterflies also came from Renea's shop. These are the Tiny Treasures butterflies, called "Ice". Some of the Prima product was also from Rena's shop. I will list all the products I used from her shop down below.  I added some rub-on words to the front of my vase. I don't know the brands of these...I've had them for awhile. I wanted to add a delicate touch to the project, so I decided to add some heart shaped chain hanging off the front of the vase and then added another gear and lock in the center of that. I wanted to bring the Glitter Glass of the butterflies onto the project as well, to tie in the theme of the Glitter Glass, so I used some of this beautiful glitter from Renea's shop in a light grey shade.
