Rhedd's Creative Spirit - August Challenge

Flippin' heck - August already and time for a new challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit.  Theme is Anything goes as long as it is mixed media/altered pieces.  For this month I have created a 'New Home' gift for a colleague.

It all started with a wine bottle, a small tonic bottle I found in my handbag after a party lol, a bolognese sauce jar and a plastic owl frame. 

I gessoed it all then painted using a dark cream chalk paint, thencovered with crackle medium.  I used a light cream over the top. I let it crackle and then used brown media antiquing cream and wiped back for the weathered vintage look.

I then used calico, laces and rosette flowers for the finishing touches.  I do hope she loves it - actually tough if she doesn't lol.

Now for the pics

Now why not head on over to Rhedd's Creative Spirit and join in with our new challenge
