Can you bottle it?

This fortnight over on the Paperartsy blog the theme has been "bottles" I decided to make a journal page:-

My background started off as left over paint from the previous post - I always mop up excess paint and add to this art journal - there are loads, and I mean loads, of pages with paint on and nothing else just waiting for the day!! lol.  Last week I decided to add the paint using a nearly dry baby wipe which really mottled it down a bit - the colours were all fresco paint - I think it was amethyst, turquoise, and the two new  yellows from Lin Browns colours (can't find them now!!) I stamped, in fresco old gold paint, the circles from Ellen Vargos plate EEV06. I added paint thro' a piece of sequin waste, stamped my faithful text stamp with snowflake and doodled with black and white pens….washi tape was added and Tando bottles were painted with pewter and then outlined with my black liner pen and then a coat of crackle added - I had already done this and discovered that my black ink had run when I read Leandras post which said to heat set!!! duh, I think the runs add a little something lol but I will remember this tip for the future…. the tando heart was painted with red and the tando arrows painted with old gold….my titled was a tando stencil using little black dress.

Hope you're all enjoying this gorgeous weather.
