Altered Bottle

Altered Bottle
        Hi friends sharing a special DT project for  Cuttlebugmania  Challenge  " Summer ". This project is very dear to me as I have tried to capture memories of  our family's summer holidays to the beach and depict them on a bottle !
Bottle Art
Beaches and bottles always go together don't they so hehe I altered a bottle for my project!
Altered Bottle
After a liberal coat of gesso I  used Finnabair white crackle paste through Scrapberry's Dotted Pattern Stencil on different parts of the bottle to depict the foam of the sea!!

Stenciling
I love this crackle paste...it is so easy to use! Here is another project using it : Mixed Media Altered Book Tutorial

For the "ocean waves" I stencilled  Ranger's texture paste through Carabelle Studio Geometrie 1 stencil

This is one of my favourite stencil designs and here is another project showcasing it : Mixed Media Box Tutorial

I like bright cheerful project so used a pastel blue paint to ink up the bottle.

One of our favourite activities as a family whenever we visit a beach is to collect sea shells and so I just had to add this sentiment stamp saying " To find a seashell is to find a world of imagination". I made the frame using Sakura air drying clay and a mould.

The lid of the bottle has sea gulls, a tiny bottle, shells, crystals and pearls...in fact all the treasures of the ocean with a liberal dusting of sparkling dust!!!

One of my most memorable summer holidays was to Goa beach and one of the highlights of that trip was the thrill of seeing dolphins swimming in the ocean!!!

On another summer holiday ...to my home in Kerala...all of us got a chance to steer a large boat...and hence I added a wheel [ a joyrcrafts die cut inked with Distress Inks  and jazzed up with rainbow glitter]!!
Altered Bottle 
I also used clay to make star fishes ...to depict yet another holiday memory from Goa....being able to touch star fish!

I added corals we got from Langkawi beach ...an amazing serene beach in Malaysia
