Hi there, my project today is an altered bottle featuring a beautiful lace flower from the new Lace Fragment stamps from Chocolate Baroque
I really enjoyed making this project. My son and his friends kindly emptied the bottle for me and once I'd washed it I gave it a generous coating of gesso. I used an assortment of pastel coloured acrylic paints from my stash to paint the bottle, making sure my brush was loaded with plenty of water to blend the colours together. Once this was dry I overpainted the bottle with pearl acrylic medium.
I used air dry clay to make the central image, I stamped the lovely lacy flower into the clay and left the imprint to dry. Make sure you give your stamp a good wash to remove any excess clay.
I left the clay overnight to dry and painted it with distress inks before attaching it to the bottle with strong pva glue.
I added some white raffia as a finishing touch and a couple of little paper roses.
I'm entering my bottle in the following challenges:
