Roses Art Blocks

I am entering these Art Blocks for the.....

 Take a Word Challenge

This block is covered with Maja Design Paper, glued on with Modge Podge. Resin Rose is painted with
Granny B Chalk paint. The rose is then glued onto the block. Once eveything is dry it gets coated with a
layer of Granny B Armour to preotect it.

The above block is covered rougl\hly with Poly-filla (crack filler for walls), leave to dry.
Rose Image done with a Granny B Stencil and Granny B Embossing Paste, leave to dry.
I sand the image just to get rid of the very sharp edges it makes when you lify up stencil.
It now gets a wash in the colour you would like to make the picture, used Granny B Cotton Candy
leave to dry and covered with a coat of Armour to pretect.

The above block was covered with a print I found on Pinterest and covered in the same way as the 1st block.

A side way image of the blocks. They all get painted around the edges and also get a coat of Armour to protect them.

Christmas (recycled glass bottle)

So Christmas has come and time flies!

I am entering this project for the following challenges...

Everybody-Art-Challenge 437
Tuesday Throwdown
Try it on Tuesday
Through the Craft Room Door
The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge

So here we go......

Used a coffee bottle, pulled the plastic lid off the lid.....decorated it with flowers, berries and embossing powder with glitter to give it a snow effect and popped it back on to the lid.
The bottle is filled with some yummy christmas goodies, so the lady who gets it can use it to decorate Christmas gifts.
You can even use the empty bottle to pack a nice edible Christmas gift for someone else.
