Paper Artsy challenge Bottles

Hi everyone hope you are all OK and  doing a lot of crafty things
I haven't had time to make a new bottle for this challenge
but still had this one that I made a while ago.

I wanted to take part in the Paper Artsy challenge as I want to do more
of these bottles just need lots of hours. 

I created this bottle from an old Sambuca bottle that my son
had  picked up on holiday.

I covered the bottle in gesso then applied alcohol inks 
in terracotta and denim.

I used film clay and stamped into this then moulded it round 
the bottle. Which I then baked in an oven
on a very low setting.

I then finished of with treasure gold.
I hope you like it for those of you who have not seen this before.
Please feel free to let me know what you think.

Eyes Tested

Hi everyone hope you are all well its time to play over at SanDee &Amelie's
Steampunk challenge,

This months the theme is eye's tested although you would need your
eye's tested if you think you will be able to see 
through my glasses!!

The base is a pair of my son's sunglasses that I covered over with my
home made leather.

Various clock and compasses were stamped on distress coloured card 
& used for each lens then cogs and wings 

I Attached a glass fuse across the nose with wire.

Die cut card and coloured it so that it looked like the patina from rust.

It is amazing what you can create when you put your mind to it I nearly gave
up with this but my husband and son wouldn't let me.

I am glad I didn't please let me know what you think?

May's Challenge over at the Artistic Stamper.

Hi everyone I hope you are all well in here in crafty land. 
I have my first ever journal page for you.

Jennie asked us over at the Artistic stamper to create a journal page 
this is not something I have ever done before as Off I went!!!

I used Ariondack colour wash sprays mine are very old and they have 
changed the names of the colours but I used butterscotch which
they still do, Denim and Currant (Cranberry Color Wash).

I had painted the page with a cream chalk finish acrylic paint.
then used the colour wash sprays. I used the three colours 
then sprayed with water and heat set.

I applied ultra mat medium over the top. I put clear texture paste through
the Artistic Stamper Swirls stencil. 

The clock face was covered in crackle accents.

I used the various stamps with white acrylic paint and stazon black.

I coloured some white card with distress stain sprays rusty hinge 
chipped Sapphire and red brick.

I stamped the butterfly of the insects plate numerous times 
then heat embossed it.

I attached beads and sequins to the body's of the butterfly's.

I cut them out and fixed them to the page.

I wrote a few words here and there using a black gel pen.

The Artistic Stamper Stamp's and stencils that I used.
  1. Neil Walker, Alphabet Soup.
  2. Insects and Butterflies the main butterfly.
  3. Calligraphic mat 12
  4. Background Stamps Trellis & C75 Lace
  5. The small clock face off Time and keys plate.
  6. New Artistic Stamper Mask's Swirl & Splats and swirls.
I hope you have enjoyed reading about how I created my first journal page as much as I have enjoyed making it. As always let me know what you think.
