As promised; "Now for something completely different"Crafty Cardmakers Challenge this fortnight is "Altered Food Containers". While some may not consider a wine bottle a "food container" some - like me - do, lol.
I can't remember the name of the wine, it was something like Glass Mountain, and suffice to say, I have painted many of these bottles over the years...I only bought it for the bottle (yeah, right!) the same company bought out a red and gold coloured bottle, but I don't have so many of those gathering dust in the shed!!
I used Jo Sonja paints and Glass and Tile Medium, the bottle wasn't too slick to start with so I didn't have much trouble getting the paint to stick. I saw the pattern used on a plate and added some details and adapted it to the bottle.
My husband had some family over from England recently, I painted the bottle for the parents, a photo frame for the little girl (Grace) and the trinket box with the crab on for Dan the Man!! I used patterns from Susan Pirone's fabulous book Splash! for the frame and box.
My husband's niece went swimming with dolphins for her birthday while she was here; in fact the entire time they were here the whole family were in the water, so the gift seemed appropriate - they seemed to like it, anyway. I had a cute photo of the little ones at the beach, so I gave them that for in the frame.
Anyway, that's about it; just thought I'd "share", and when I saw this challenge theme, and that it didn't have to be papercraft I thought I'd enter.
Fab'n'Funky Challenges has Summer Loving as its challenge theme - and it as it can be any craft project, I'm entering there too.
Until next time, Happy Crafting, Dee
