Decorative bottle


It's such along time since my last blog.... been creating and uploading new stocks!!

Over on the Paterartsy blog the theme is bottles, click here for the link!! Fresh my Finnabair workshop yesterday I knew actually what I wanted to create.

OH supplied me the bottle, so good of him to sacrifice a couple of hours emptying 2 bottles, I said I only needed one!!!!

It took a while to soak the labels off, but then I was really to start......

I gave it a quick coat of Gesso and whilst that dried I used grudge paste through a circle stencil and through the leaf PA stencil on to tissue paper. and use a matt medium to stock to the bottle.

Using twine and acrylic glue the cover the neck of the bottle.

then started to sponge over the Frescoes Mermaid, limelight and Candy all over.

I stamped a coloured one of my fav PA images, and added some embellishments around it, this wasn't easy getting them to stick. Painted them and use silver TG over the top.
Finished off will some beads and charms and paint the twine with a white wash, and of course extra another little glass bottle.

Really please with the results, and OH said I can do lots of these (wonder why!!) 

Thanks for looking xx
