Bottled Up and Glazed Over
Trust you are feeling on
top of the world...........
Well, its February - I have to
give you some hope......
Now if you've been whisked
off to Paris (or anywhere come
to that) for a romantic
Valentine's weekend then here
is the perfect reminder from
"I started this project with a smooth, tall bottle.
Ensure this is thoroughly clean before starting
as it will take the glaze better.
Now we can start to add the glaze by dabbing it on
with a sponge using your choice of colours.
I chose to use these three but obviously the choice is up to you.
Next I used a Tim Holtz stamp and Stazon ink
to apply detail to the bottle.
The easy way to do this is to lay the stamp firmly
on a craft mat and roll the bottle over it firmly.
This is where the smooth bottle comes
into it's own as it works well on the stamp
Here you can see the first stamping produced
Now I added more colour and continued with the stamping
And here is the finished bottle.
I used more Tim Holtz stamps and also used some
to create the labels on shrink plastic
The flowers are from my stash
Hope you enjoyed this.
Thank you very much Angela,
I think we all enjoyed the
transformation from plain
bottle to a treasure.....
