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!

Alcohol Ink Altered Bottle

It is time for another challenge Bleeding Arts.  Bleeding Art is a mixed media/anything goes challenge blog all the time. 

I have been playing with my Alcohol Inks and decides to alter a bottle with them.  I painted my bottle with gesso and then sprayed the bottle with Kiltz primer to seal the gesso so I could use my Alcohol Inks. 

This is what I started with

I used a selection of Pentart Alcohol Inks, the colours including

trumpet flower
white coffee

Once I was had the bottle covered with the inks that I was pleasing to me I added my findings which included 

a picture frame
metal butterfly
metal section from a metal belt
