Illuminated Bottle - Kerstin Filou

Hi creative friends!

 I was inspired to create another
glass bottle in altered art.





1 choose some chipboards I used a
border and a flourish element 
  glue a piece of cheesecloth and
the chipboards with construction
  adhesive on the glass

2 create a pillar gate and a
little mermaid with airdrying modeling 
   clay and silicone cake moulds,

2a I love to use some leftovers
from the chipboards (here the
     bottom conclusion) 
     borders are used on
the sides

glued the gate and also
added some shells and two pieces of driftwood as entrance steps 

         afterwards the
bottle was completely covered with crackle medium 'Weathered wood'

4 after drying covered with a
chalky finish paint for glass 'Relic' (DecoArt)

let it dry for a few hours

5 now two wax cremes 'Lavish
Green' and 'Brilliant Turquoise'

 6   dry brush
technique with white gesso to lighten the dark colour

finally added the little

 some close up's


 chipboards can be bent around the
bottle very well 
after a light moistening with

Cherish - Kristy Abela - Mood Board Inspiration

Its July already! Another moodboard challenge is here. From this one I took those delicate colours and mixed them with another delicacy, Taashi. My baby grew her wings last month and this one is for her. 

I used the baroque flourish in another layout as wings and these ones are the larger pair. Clever huh? Just goes to show your imagination is the only limitation. 

I used some flat coloured embossing powder to make the title stand out 

and a shimmery colour of embossing powder for the bluebells.

To create the background I used some of the washi tape from the same paper range.

I added some modelling paste, embossing powder (heat set it) and then some stamping.

I used the die cuts from the paper pack and layered them and the chipboard among the rungs on the ladder.

Here I used some crayon to highlight the background.

Live for the moment - Julia Ost - Mixed Media Canvas

Hello dear friends!
I love creating  vintage projects where I build up layers, paste cracks to compose a layout made of favorite ptoducts. This time I have a triangular canvas with patina and multilayeredness made with Dusty Attic chipboard, paper and toppings.  

First I toned my layout and covered it with texture paste through the stencil with crackle effect. After that I used Lindy’s spray, wax, oil paint and structuring mixture from Stamperia to work on the texture of the layout. 
Then I used the chipboard that I painted the same colour as my layout is, added some paper elements from and completed it with аrt stone from Primamarketing. 
I also planned to have an eye in my project, but decided to save it for some other time. 

Instead I have a beautiful butterfly fluttering over my project!
I hope you enjoy my new composition! 

Here I used:

ATC set - Anat Weksler - Mood Board Inspiration

Hello crafty friends!
Anat here today with my ATC set inspired by the Fabulous moodboard.

Although, lately, you see me  create a lot of Industrial and Steampunk projects, I love Shabby Chic and the pastel colors of the moodboard as well.
When I saw the moodboard I knew I want to use the Mini wire dress form. So feminine and gorgeous.


After I finished them I decided who will get them and made this stickers matching the colors.

All chipboards were painted with a mix of Finnabair impasto paints and rubbed with metalique wax.

I also used some parts of the inside of  Atc gothic windows , as you see I love Dusty Attic so much and  use everthing LOL.

Thanks for stopping by!
