Well here I am again with our new challenge at Country View Challenges which is most appropriate for the season:
Inspired by Bottles
My little bottle started life as a Tesco Air Freshener similar to this. I was just about to throw the empty bottle away when I realised it would make a good base for our challenge.
After a coat of gesso I then applied a very thick layer of DecoArt Crackle Paste.
I decorated the sides of the bottle with a ZVA Self Adhesive Pearl Embellishment. I bought a whole load of these in a sale and whilst they are not something I would normally use I find they are lovely painted with gesso and then overpainted with gold paint.
As today is the first of the month (as well as the first of the year!) the whole DT are showing their bottle inspired projects so do hop on over to Country View Challenges to see some amazing projects from my fellow teamies.
And of course we shall each be back during the month to share more inspirational pieces with you. I hope you manage to find some crafting time and join us in our challenge for this month. As usual we have a winning voucher for one lucky entrant and for the Design Team Pinworthies a chance to join us as Guest Designer.
Thank you for joining me again but I am sorry to say that I shall be back once more today with another first of the month challenge piece. So au revoir until then!
