Altered Bottle with Volume Decoupage

Volume Decoupage
      Hi friends sharing an altered bottle with bright red lilies made using the technique of 3 D Volume Decoupage.
       I applied gesso to  and later painted a glass bottle with white acrylic paint .Since I didnt want a stark white base I sponged mowed lawn Distress Inks  over it to give it a pale green - creamish look.
Volume Decoupage
        The red lilies were made by cutting the individual flowers from a  volume decoupage sheet and heating and embossing each petal and leaf [As explained here: Volume Decoupage Tutorial ]

          My bottle didnt have a cap so I made one using a Christmas Ornament [ also featured in this Christmas project : Paper Cone Christmas Tree tutorial]
Christmas Ornament
         I used a cool mixed media texture medium called Glass Beads Gel to coat my Christmas ball ornament
Glass Beads Gel
         The glass beads gel looks white and grainy when you apply it and has an adhesive property too so I didnt have to use any extra adhesive to stick the ornament to the bottle
Glass Beads Gel
        As the glass beads gel dries it becomes more transparent. If you are interested in seeing more Glass Beads Gel Projects click these links : Ocean Themed Box, Texture Media Experiments, Altered Heart tutorial

And once fully dry [ can take a couple of hours depending on how thick you put the gel] it looks gorgeous !

I used a snippet of lace to hide the ridges of the glass bottle! Hope you like my altered bottle

  2. OK, this is what happened, three attempts to publish by bypassing the robot box didn't work, so clicked that, next I get the photo box and had to select from several photos which ones had flowers, did that and then it left me publish. Guess it will be the same with this one but wanted to let you know as you had been kind enough to pop over in response to my plea.

  40. Hello, Sonia! Thank you for stopping by my blog. I've been remiss making the rounds of my favorite bloggers and vow to do better! :)
    Your creativity continues to amaze....those dimensional flowers are incredible!

    Oh, and the Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens are my new favorite purchase....I LOVE them...so easy to use and blend!!! And if you get them...get the biggest pack you can find. They have 80 colors but the largest bundle is with 60. Well worth the $ I think!
