Art Bottles

June 12, 2009

I have been noticing here in blogland some of the gorgeous art bottles that are just popping up, so I decided to give it a try. I so enjoyed this the creative process, when I can just play and enjoy getting my hands dirty. I used a copy of one of my sweet images and added some vintage lace, a used dryer sheet to give some texture to the bottle underneath the lace piece, beeswax and then added the bling - a broken necklace paired with a vintage rhinestone button. My husband couldn't believe that I was saving used dryer sheets... he just shook his head and headed the other direction. What we do for creativity!
I am working on some more art bottles -- this time combining some beeswax, more images and soldering. But my solder gun has finally died on me so I have to purchase another one! Don't you hate it when your creativity is stopped due to broken things or not having enough? That is why my DH says I could open my own store... Oh, well there are worse things I could be doing!
Have a wonderful, creative weekend!
