Altered bottle I made after taking one of Andy Skinner’s workshops.  Making this was so much fun!  If you like this and want to know how to create one yourself, go check out his work work!

Wanted to do something vampire-ish and this is what I came up with.  I discovered these awesome skull and crossbones cameos over at Alpha Stamps and I was just dying to use it on something!  The Lovecraft sentiment was some digital art I purchased over at Etsy from steamduststudios.  I didn’t have any decent black lace and really couldn’t find any, so I took some white lace I had and spritzed it with black Smooch Spritz from Clean Snap.

Another altered bottle I created today. I think I might be starting toget the hang of this. Can’t seem to keep the glue and paint off my fingers though, but I guess that is half the fun : p  The image is by HarrisonFisher. I added some other images of his below for you to enjoy ; )

Something new and fun I have been trying. Altered Bottle Art. I picked up this old clear square corked bottle from a flea market. I decoupaged the bottle and then painted it red adding gold mica flakes, glitter, micobeads, shells, fishing net and anything else I could find! The images are from Sweet Pea Rubber Stamps. The top of the bottle is the cork that I painted black and added some gold glitter too, then I went through my junk draws and found this old wooden cat toy that you could fill with catnip. It was perfect! I painted it red and then added a straight pin through the hole on top of the cat toy. Strung some beads on wire and twisted that around the neck and ta-da, my very first altered bottle! I had tons of fun making this, so there will definately be more. I will be sure to post whenever I get them done.


Supplies: Stamps, Sweet Pea Rubber Stamps; Decoupage, Acrylic paint (red, white); tissue paper, gold mica flakes, glitter, microbeads, shells, fishnet, charms, beads, wire, random cat toy, lots of glue : p
