Well, remember the Artful Gathering class I am finishing up with? The bottles and textures ? I thought alright lets do a cute bottle for grandaughter, she loved the one I did first, not her colors but the whole concept of it. So I created this bottle , showed it to her and she loves it. I feel like pleasing a busy little 19 year old was like hitting the jackpot at Vegas. To me anyway, probably cost me a lot less dollars also that going to Vegas.
I drag out the paints and all the goodies to create this beautiful bottle, paint, glue and things go to flying like a mad scientist building their whatever they build. I have a wonderful 2 foot by 3 foot matt, they call it a misting matt by Tattered Angels. It is pink, which is a good color almost as good as red or yellow, right up there anyway. It is a silicone matt that our glue doesn't stick to or the paint but remember it is not a cutting board. I keep the newly discovered error at the back of my work table now.
Here you go, the bottle. The sunflower is from a painting I did earlier here on the blog, the jewelry goodies is from a bracelet I cut apart and the little medalion at the bottom is stating to LIVE IN THE MOMENT. Now you know where my saying came from I put other words around on it also. This was fun and Zinnia might have created a monster here, making these pretty little things.
This is the next bottle I created. Lace, ribbons, flowers, charms,metal dragon flies and words. I also added a painting I had done of grandaughter during her Senior year of high school. It was an antique bottle we picked up earlier. The saying on this one is in the garden of life you are the rarest of flowers.
There you go and now you know what I have been up to the last few days. Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world. xo
