Altered bottle for Altered Eclectic Challenge *

For this months challenge I altered a wine bottle from next door neighbours trash lol and turned it into a wedding present.  I don't drink due to all the medication I am on so rescuing bottles is my only option lol.

To start with I painted gesso as the base and then chalk paint over the top.  I decoupaged a rose paper napkin randomly. I blended the edge of the roses by dry brushing the chalk paint round the edges.  I sanded the entire bottle to one smoth it out and to age it. I then varnished the entire bottle and stuck one of my photos over the bottle front.  My favourite one of the married couple. Gorgeous image. I then varnished over the top, added my favourite trim, a few roses and a handmade bow.  All finished and ready for this months challenge.....sorry for overload of pics which I took in my garden....

Thank you for popping in and please free feel to do so again.  Why not head on over to Altered Eclectics and join in with this months challenge

Hugz to all xx
