Good Evening to all. I'm here to post my entry to the Compendium of Curiosities Volume III Challenge hosted by the talented Linda Ledbetter. If you don't have a copy of Tim Holtz's book, you can purchase your very own here and play along. Just turn to page 54, Faux Crackled Glass to master a cool technique. Did I mention that this challenge is not only sponsored by Tim and Mario, but also by Linda Coughlin at The Funkie Junkie Boutique...pssst, they are having a FLASH sale over there right now.
I chose to use the technique to alter a bottle for my daughter's birthday. She is in love with unique bottles and blue is one of her favorite colors along with purple and black. I followed Tim's technique and used Mermaid Alcohol Ink along with Snow Cap Alcohol Ink to accent the bottom of the bottle to give a milk-glass appearance. I applies Snow Cap Alcohol Ink to a typed token and tied it around the neck of the bottle with Jute String. I have included a few more pics...hope you like it.
Looking forward to using this technique again soon...the Curiosity Crew really rocked this challenge with tips and inspiration. That's all for now...thanks for stopping by :)
