2015 Theme 10: Bottles
Hi Guys, My name is Bracken and I'm 14 years old and been arty for over four years.
I experiment with all types of art and craft and love messing about with colour under the name ArtymeB!.. My Nana was a HUGE influence on me from the word GO and has continued to be very supportive in my many ventures.
I chose this theme because there are SO many different variations you can use with a bottle to get a pleasing result...like your own little message in a bottle!
Paint the entire box frame with Chalk using a flat paintbrush avoiding the glass. In the roof of the frame and an inch in from the right (approx) fix a mini screw eye.
Onto a slab of Heavy Grey-White Board distress with Ranger Distress Ink almost the whole board (leaving a white space in the middle) with Squeezed Lemonade then again with Spiced Marmalade layered around the sides and then with a smidge of barn boor..this time only on the edges.
Using Jet Black Archival Ink, stamp the large flower head from ELB 16 and a sentiment from EEV 10 onto the board and flick watered down Tango also. Paint the flower in this order with watered down...Yellow Submarine, Tango, Autumn Fire and London Bus. The watery green paints used were... Sage, Hey Pesto, Tinned Peas, Hyde Park, Guacamole and Limelight.
Cover the flower petals head in a thick layer of Glossy Accents and allow to dry.
On the cork of a mini glass vial, twist in a mini screw eye and attach a jump ring along with a length of chain. Fill the bottle with small black beads and stick a sign with 'seeds' (Dovecraft mini alphabet set) onto the bottle. Fasten the chain and vile with another mini jump ring to the screw eye mentioned in Step 1.
Finally glue the completed board to the frame.
