christmas decoration - an altered bottle


I love to alter bottles. First you have the joy of drinking and then the joy of altering the bottle :)



  

  




The making off:

 

                                                      1                                                2

I gessoed the bottle (1) and then used blue tissue paper (2)  and mod podge to get colour and structure on the bottle

 

3

I used thinned acrylic colours (just be warned: the tissue papers might bleed though - if you just want the structure it´s better to use white tissue paper)

 

4
I added glimmer mist and golden wax for a more elegant look.

I stamped all images on tissue paper and adhered them with mod podge.



Stamps used:


for the background I used the plate

The snow-flake border die is from memory box.

A very beautiful bottle! This way you can build a whole village from differently sized and shaped bottles on your window-sill.

Een hele mooie fles! Op deze manier kun je een heel dorp bouwen van flessen van verschillende groote en vorm in je vensterbank.
