Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Altered Wine Bottle

Bleeding Art Has another great challenge this month, as always it is anything goes mixed media.

 Look at what I found for a $1.00 at a thrift store to alter.  I was so excited when I found it.   The bottle was from a local Winer for a wine they produced 15 years ago called Jazz Blush.

Here is the bottle I purchased.


This is my bottle once I had completed the project.



I  painted my bottle first with gesso  and then with Pentart decoupage paste I added my scraps of music from an old song book.  I used a brown gel medium to coat the page to give the project a antique look.   I painted the keys, musical letters, handle, and mouth piece black and assented it with a gold trim.  I added buttons to the keys.  To complete the altered bottle I added a jazzy tag, 

Some more views of the project.
