New Altered Bottles







I have to "switch gears" often. Probably if I were little, they would put me on some kind of medication or something. But, I love variety in everything. And, if something holds my interest, well, if it's worth holding my interest, then I can certainly pay attention. But in my art, I do jump around from needle felting, silk embroidery, collage, painting, assemblage, altered art, working with metal....probably I have left something out.






But, I think that is what makes life interesting and I have been doing collage and all for almost 15 years. The jumping around keeps my creative juices going strong. And, then I go backwards and pick up some of the things I have done in way years past.






Now, I am back to bottles. This time I am using tips I picked up from Joanna in that I am adding soldering and beeswax. Can't mail beeswax right now. Although it might not soften during the mailing process, then again it just might in the back of those post office trucks. So, am sticking to other methods for the summer months.






Here are my newest. They are being offered on Etsy.

How fun! Look like they might have held the spinster Aunt's not-so-secret "medicine" stash ;D

Have you tried colored hot glue stix. I haven't but saw some gorgeous colors & metallic hues in the stationary store recently. Wonder if you could get a waxy look but have it harden & stay put...hmm....

I hear you on the project hopping! I joke that I have ART ADD

Your newest venture are neat! I think a lot of us are hoppers. I know I am, I start on something and that triggers something else and before I know it I'm off and running. Keep trying to control it so I get some items to the finished point but I finally realized I'm more of a starter than a finisher. So when I finish something it's time to celebrate!
