Old World Flower Pots

The holidays have been crazy busy this year and I have many projects I want to share but they don't seem to be getting done.  Last week I worked on two different new flower pots using my reverse decoupage method.  I like the coloration of these, but I wish I would have trimmed around the pattern a tiny bit better.  Other than that, I love the way they turned out because I love this antique map graphic.   I don't remember where I got it, but I included it at the end of this post.
I used an aqua craft paint on regular terra cotta pots and then went over them with gesso and a washy coat of terra cotta craft paint.  Then I applied the image and did a reverse decoupage.  This project has a nice old world feel.  Tomorrow I'll show you two more I did using Annie Sloan's graphite.  Thanks for stopping by.

They are just lovely, Maggie! I have a list of things I want to try once the holidays are over and doing a few terracotta pots is on the list.
