Inspired by bottles

Happy New Year! January sees the start of a new theme at Country View Crafts and this month it is Inspired by bottles. I love using bottles in projects - as bottles, or the bodies of people or as something completely different! For my projects this month I have envisaged a bottle as a vase. This PaperArtsy bottle is a great size to hold this flower! The bottle and the flower are stamped on tissue paper and then painted on the reverse. Lots of stamps and stencils make up the background including using Gold paints through a stencil for a metallic twist.
