Creative Artiste DT Post

Hi everyone - Happy New Year! Hope you all had a good Christmas however you celebrated.
Here is this months DT make for Creative Artiste.
The sponsor this month is Dusty Attic.
The theme is - anything goes with a twist - use chipboard.
I decided to recycle an empty Olive Oil bottle. I used white gesso to covet the bottle. Once this was dry I used Deco Art's crackle paint. Once this was dry I went over this with various inks & waxes to get the aged finish.
I found some rub ons that I had bought from a local pound shop ages ago & thought thee would be just right for the look I was wanting, i wasn't sure if they would work on the medium but they did!
I coloured some chipboard shapes with coloured waxes & adhered these around the bottle.
Wrapped some twine around the neck of the bottle & added a chipboard birdie. Hope you like it.
Pop over to Creative Artiste blog & have a look at the other DT's fantastic makes. Enter the challenge - it's fun!
Pop back tomorrow for another new blog challenge!
