Bottled Up and Glazed Over

Bottled Up and Glazed Over


Hi Everyone!

Trust you are feeling on
top of the world...........
Well, its February - I have to
give you some hope......

Now if you've been whisked
off to Paris (or anywhere come 
to that) for a romantic 
Valentine's weekend then here
is the perfect reminder from
Angela Radford:


"I started this project with a smooth, tall bottle. 
Ensure this is thoroughly clean before starting 
as it will take the glaze better.


Now we can start to add the glaze by dabbing it on 
with a sponge using your choice of colours.



I chose to use these three but obviously the choice is up to you.


Next I used a Tim Holtz stamp and Stazon ink
 to apply detail to the bottle. 

The easy way to do this is to lay the stamp firmly 
on a craft mat and roll the bottle over it firmly. 

This is where the smooth bottle comes 
into it's own as it works well on the stamp


Here you can see the first stamping produced


Now I added more colour and continued with the stamping


And here is the finished bottle. 
I used more Tim Holtz stamps and also used some 
to create the labels on shrink plastic



The flowers are from my stash

Hope you enjoyed this.

Happy Crafting

Angela xXx"

Thank you very much Angela, 
I think we all enjoyed the
transformation from plain
bottle to a treasure.....

'Till tomorrow
