Altered oil bottle

Here is the before and after of an oil bottle I altered for a swap-I used gesso first and then paint and tissue paper and lots of prima goodies including gold foil bloom spray, prima flowers, leaves, vine and copper metals. I also added shipping string around the neck with a Tim Holtz token hanging from the string.

I am going to enter my bottle into the Prima June challenges which you can check out HERE

I have some close up pics here and also a video of how I made the bottle and I would love you to check that out.

This close up shows all the prima embellishments and you can see how I added some plaint and the prima bloom spray to those too.

Here is the video:

Graphic 45s September Challenge-my entry!!

Hey guys...

So things have been hectic the past few months as I have been preparing for baby #3!! She is due next week and I just cannot wait :)

Today.. I want to share with you all my entry for the Graphic 45 September challenge.

This is my piece:

I have a video here to tell you all about what I did to make this book box Halloween display. The Graphic 45 papers I used were scraps from last years projects-the paper lines were an eerie tale and steampunk spells.

If you can-I would love you to pop over to the Graphic 45 Facebook page and give my entry a 'like' HERE voting closes Sept 30th

Thanks for visiting today,

Aideen x
