Tutorial Crackled Mini Bottles with lace, buttons....

This month I am the honoured host of the new challenge at CraftyIndividuals blog 'Lace, Buttons, Bits and bobs': I altered a couple of minibottles containing...buttons of course!
Questo mese ho avuto  l'onore di scegliere il tema dela sfida sul blog della CraftyIndividuals : 'Pizzi, bottono e...pezzettini vari'. Ho alterato due mini bottigliette, che contenevano bottoni!
I would like to participate on the Country View challenges: Be inspired by BOTTLES

How I made these mini bottles:
-Cover the bottle with a thick layer of clear crackle paint
-When perfectly dry, cover with a layer of gel medium to avoid the crackle from crumbling
and give an opaque look
-When still wet adhere bits of lace and set aside to dry
-Spray with your favourite mists
-In the meantime gesso some book pages.
-Stamp several tags using CI and cut them out
-Colour the stamped images with Gelatos and a detailer paintbrush
-Colour the lid with alcohol ink and adhere the stamped image to the bottle

-Ricoprire la bottiglietta con crackle trasparente
-Quando asciutto ricoprire con gel medium o PVA per protezione
-Ancora umido incollare pezzettini di pizzo
-Spruzzare con i colori preferiti
-Nel frattempo gessare delle pagine di libro e stampare delle immagini vintage
-Colorare le immagini stampate ed incollarle alla bottiglietta
-Colorare il tappo ed eventuali charms con gli alcohol ink
I also made two courful cards:
With a super helper :-)

Queste bottigliette sembrano uscite da una favola... le mille e una notte o qualcosa del genere. Sai mixare un femminilissimo sapore liberty con colori vibranti e caleidoscopici... come mi piacerebbe saperlo fare!!! Sei una favola anche tu... anzi, un mito!!! :D Grazie per farmi brillare sempre gli occhi!
