hello beautiful people of blog land
its a new challenge fortnight at
That craft place
the theme is
my offering is an altered bottle
i had been to the walpaper shop, and found the perfect paper, so brought home a sample to show hubby, it met with approval so off i went and bought said paper and some paint to match.
well i had this lovely but very sadly empty Amaretto bottle.
well whats a girl to do with a lovely shaped bottle, some wallpaper samples and a slap of paint!
well make a bit of pretty for the new room of course! lol
i started by painting the bottle with a couple of coats of gesso, then a coat of the bedroom paint, finished off with a quick coat of gesso wiped over with tissue to reveal the colour .
then i added images from the paper sample, sticking them to the bottle with deco mache.
i had some rolled roses i had made, some foam roses and some little china roses i thought went well together, the lace is an applique cut from a wedding dress, i added this to the bottom and around the neck of the bottle.
the back of the bottle was also decorated with the paper , then the flowers where added on the bottom and a couple to the neck.
if you look closely at the first image you can just about see the sprinkling of tiny gems randomly stuck over the bottle
i dont think one bottle on its own will look too good do you ;)
(hey its a valid excuse for more amaretto )
now its over to you come join in the fun after all with the anything goes theme you can play to your hearts content x
