This months mood board is simply stunning. Teal and copper are two of my personal favourite colour combinations. As i love these colours so much i just had to create two Altered bottles.
I basically used the same products on both bottles, just in different ways.
I started buy lightly sanding an old rose bottle with rough sand paper. I then gave it a good coat of crackly paste. I then used a combination of rust paste and lindy's spray to achieve the perfect copper/rust look i was after.
Over a couple of days i played around with a mixture of lindy's sprays. I used Flat Pabio (ocean breeze blue) as the base colour. I then worked in (tibetan poppy teal, azure sea asters, time travel teal) as well as using starburst squirts (banff blue), this was fantastic to work over the rust areas with a stiff brush. I also used a little of (bayou boogie gold) over the rust to give it a darker/richer colour.
Then i went a little crazy with fun things. I used finnabair wax (old denim and peacock) over old jewellery and chipboards. Full list of products at the end of the blog. I used rust and green coloured moss, rust painted resins and mini prills to decorate.
With my second bottle i also used a rough sand paper, this helps the gesso or crackle paste stick tot eh bottle. I used white gesso with this bottle. I used a thick, soft brush to dab the gesso on, leaving beautiful patterns. I also used two fabric doileys to add a little more texture. I added an old embellishment from an old hand bag and a crown resin.
I wanted to make this bottle a little brighter than the first one. I started out using finnabair opal magic (teal) as the base. I then went over it with squirts and sprays. Again i worked with all the colours i used on the first bottle., just in reverse.
Again, i went a little crazy with product. I used the same as the first bottle. Rust covered resins, jewellery, beads, mini prills, moss and chip boards.
There you go. Two Altered rose bottles, Teal and copper.
