My First Bottle today...

I saved a couple of bottles from my Holiday in March in the Peak District. I liked their shape and thought one day I will decorate them. I started one a few weeks ago but have to admit I did not know what I was doing. I stuck some printed paper on the bottle and when dry painted it red and added some golden trim.

That was a far as I got . I hated it, so stuck it in the corner with the pile of 'I'll finish them one day.'

Well today was that day. Still didn't have a clue what to do. So I got out my distress paints and in particular  gold painted it.  It still l look dreadful, no picture I'm afraid. What next I thought! Frantage! I used the shabby blue around the collar.

added some lace and ribbon and stuck some gems around. I also added a sentiment which say Dare To Dream! Live Every day From the Hear.

I think it ended up better than it started but I still need lots of practice lol. Thank you for visiting

I'm going to enter this into the challenges at Arty Inklings and Craft Stamper take make it Challenge  

Big hugs Debs xx

  2. Great transformation Debs! I love the idea of doing more altered art but a bit like you it's well out of my comfort zone. Always good to try new things though and it's great when they work out.

  3. Fantastic transformation, stunning finish :-) xxx

  4. I agree with Massofhair, the transformation is amazing and beautiful too! I'm hoping to have a go at the Arty Inklings challenge this week but OH goes into hospital tomorrow so between walking the dog, visiting hospital plus the usual stuff of checking on Mum, etc. I could well be too ko'd in the evenings. If I can achieve something half as lovely as yours for my first attempt I shall be well pleased.
