Bejeweled - Altered Bottle !!

Hello Friends ,

Bejewelled .
Treasured art for your home, or a unique gift for someone special!

In the new project I have altered a Beer Bottle . I really went over board with the stones and Buttons and Laces to get the Bejewelled look :)

I want to confess that it was an experiment . I wanted to try whether Gesso will adher to bottles .
I watched loads of tutorials and finally gave it a try  .
I got third time lucky . Yippee !!!

Gesso can be adhered to glass bottles  . It needs to be mixed with Glue - Fevicol.

I havnt taken any pics as I wasnt sure whether it will come out the way I wanted it ..

First I started with sponging Gesso onto the bottle . Gave Multiple layers of it  . Sponging , why not Brushing  ?? Sponging gives a unique texture which I liked  :)  Once it was dried up , I gave a coat of acrylic colour ( Potrait Pink ) to it randomly and not evenly coated.

I Just Love Laces . I go crazy with them and have hoarded a few . I took out one of them and stuck it around the bottle. I tied a lacy ribbon over it and made it to a bow . The Base and the neck also has been covered with laces . You can see the Big Red Button adhered on the Lacy Bow. Butterfly has been stuck on a spellbinders dies cut - shapeabilities. Below the Butterfly you can see a Silver sparkling branch kind on which it is sitting, its a Earring of mine which I made it flat :)

Then I started decorating the bottles with handmade flowers . These are punch flowers and not die cuts . I have put lots of butterflies and dragonflies along with it .Next I added strings with stones embedded , to give the Jewel look to the Bottle on the whole .

 You can see a Big Gem like Button sitting on the mouth of the Bottle..!!

The Key is the Focal point .Its also altered by sticking Stone strings around it .. .
I just Loooved the way it has come up ..

Hope you like it too  !!
