I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

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 Bottle - Colour Challenge at Splashy Mix Challenge

We have another great challenge at Splashy Mix Challenges.  The challenge is a colour challenge.  Here is the mood board to inspire you.

This is my alcohol ink altered bottle I created for this challenge.

This is the bottle before I altered it.

I first painted my bottle white gesso and then sprayed the bottle with Kilz primer I purchased from a hardware store. I used several different shapes of yellow and purple Pentart Alcohol inks to create an interesting my pattern on the bottle.  The colours were inspired by our mood board.  I used small clear glass tiles left over from a kitchen project for the tiles on the bottle coloured with Alcohol Inks which I added small metal flowers to. 

Here are some more views of the completed project.

Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to be inspired by our talented  design team and to see the great prizes that out sponsors are offering.
