A Pretty Bottle....



This is my first time at altering a bottle...this one was lovely and was crying out to be decorated. So I decided this would be my design team piece for my Altered Art Challenge Blog.
I covered the bottle using a beautiful cotton lace doily that was my mothers, I remember it being on her dressing table and if my memory serves me right it was made by her mother, my grandmother.
The trims were all from my stash and so were the lovely soft foam roses,which were just the right colour.

I would love to see you over at Rhedds Creative Spirit, its an Altered Art Blog and the challenges run monthly...with a prize for the winner each month, this is this months prize, a Tim Holtz Configuration Box...


Well worth entering the challenge for, you can find it here......Rhedd's Creative Spirit

I'm entering this altered bottle in to the challenge at  Altered Eclectics
