Hello, Crafty Peeps!
Welcome to another month of fun at Altered Eclectics!
As always the theme is anything goes but has to be altered/upcycled/recycled/mixed media. Cards and ATC's are not accepted on this blog but may fit in with our challenges over at Eclectic Ellapu (sister blog)
I am back with another altered bottle project. I fell in love with the shape of this bottle. It made me think of Greco-Roman Architectural design. I tried to capture the essence of the patina that occurs over time and leaves little bits of gold and copper peeking through. I also wanted to incorporate a nod to the great libraries and archives of those cultures, so I used a roller-graph to add text to the design. Hope you like this one. I hope you like them all! HUGZ!
I found this fabulous cigar label in my ephemera stash. It was a perfect match for the Prima Vintage Trinket. These two pieces really pulled the project together and completed the visual interest!
Try altering some bottles. It is a very inexpensive way to create interesting conversation home decor pieces! Let those creative juices flow! See you next time!
