Show Your Bottles

Hey everyone, hope you all are having a great weekend! I finally had a chance to play in the craft room for awhile today. I have been wanting to try Wendy Vecchi's Faux Crazed Glass technique for a while now. Also, over on Simon Says Stamp and Show blog the theme is Show your bottles, so I thought a perfect chance to try the technique out. I love it!!
We've had this bottle at work and I have eyed it several times thinking I could do something with it, and with Tim's online class coming up Creative Chemistry, I had an idea! That bottle came home with me on Fri. So here is what I created with it using Wendy's Faux Crazed Glass technique, thank you Wendy!

The rose was done using a technique I learned in one of Tim's classes last summer Faux Porcelain Rose. Love it!!

So my photography isn't the best again, but it turned out pretty cool. I had a lot of fun with this one!!

Have a good one!



  1. Really cool altered (already altered) bottle!! haha I love how you've crackled that weird shaped bottle and colored it! I love all of your Ideaology embellishments, your faux porcelain rose (cool technique, huh?) and the vials with the "Wendy" inspired flowers. Very neat project! Thanks for sharing it with all of us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

  2. For real?!?!?! This is too cool, Donna! Love every single thing about it, especially the teeny bottles with grunge flowers stuck on the pins.

  3. What a great altered bottle and vignette! Love that technique. Thanks for joining the challenge at Simon Says Stamp & Show.
