Set of 3 Tags and a Altered Bottle for July Scrapmatts DT Post by Rhonda

What is it about Tags that is attracting me?...
Oh well...Another set of three this month but instead of planning
they are made up of a collection of bits I had scattered
across my craft table and separated into 3 piles...
One set of three tags for each pile so I hope you are all
ready to see some more.
Each will be in a series called "Junk-It"
As well as the Tags some bling attracted me and from its inspiration
an Altered Bottle was born.

Junk-It Fauna Trio

Grabbed me a couple of ready made tags and laid some
semi-dried texture paste over some stencils to
get a thicker than usual effect.

This was then coloured with some LSG sprays and the bases were
then ready to be topped with a variety of bits n bobs
from my Junk-It assortment pile.

Drop a few delicate Dragonflies, Butterflies & Doves about the place
and I now have some wonderful tags to use on something else
or simply give away as gift tags.

CB1045 Butterflies 19
CB1112 Doves 01
ST1010 Borders
ST1015 Cat Paws
ST1016 Tyre Tracks

All other items that where floating about my craft table that were separated into
3 piles as a kind of chaos inspiration project…

Bottled Bling

Who doesn't like a bit of bling?
I am always looking for things to repurpose so when my son
and his groomsmen emptied some Japanese single malt I couldn't help
but see the potential in the empties.

A little trip to my favourite hardware store it wasnt long before
some metalic gold paint had found its way onto the bottle.
From here it was out with all my lovely embellishments and a
big handful of Scrapmatts chippies and it was time to let the
crafter from within free.

There really wasnt much more to it than actual assembly so I
will leave everyone to imagine how it came together.
