Perfume Makover

My Friends!
Today we have another special art treat for you - a superbly creative piece by Denisa, our new Creative Team member.
I know for sure you will want to follow Denisa's talent on her blog and make friends on facebook!


I love wearing perfumes as we all do. :)  I usually throw away empty bottles but some time ago I decided to keep some just in case I might use them later for altering.
So here I am today with my Perfume Bottle Makover.


I  started by applying a layer of Black Gesso on the bottles.
After drying I applied a thick layer of White Crackle Paste. I let it dry and crackle over night.


Next I glued down bits of Newspaper resist canvas with Soft Matte Gel and did some stencil work to create little stars.


I did some random stamping with waterproof black ink. I stamped with Don´t Forget To Fly cling stamps.
Then I used various mists and sprays in blue, gold and brown tones.


I glued the vintage photos from Finnabair's Ephemera pack on the back sides of perfume bottle caps.
I used a hot glue gun to fasten the caps on the bottles.
I attached some star brads and numbers from Mechanicals as simple embellies. I love them.


I also placed some Bronze Micro Beads and a pearl on the canvas.
I added a bit of Black Art Sugar and Bottle Green Mica Powder here and there.


I love using wires. So I twisted the wire several times and formed circles.
After fastening them to the bottles, I attached star brads straight on the wires.


Next I printed the quotes in black and white and stuck them on the caps´ sides.
As a final touch I randomly painted the bottle with gold Ecoline and voila here they are. :)




Hope you'll find my project inspiring and maybe look around your house seeing perfume bottles with the new eye. ;)
