Midmonth Tutorial at Rhedd's Creative Spirit

         **********************************************                                   June challenge is HERE
Hi all, it's Nanette here and I am  back with my mid month tutorial for Rhedd's Creative Spirit! 
Hope you are working on your challenge for June entry if you haven't already linked up with us!
I wanted to alter a bottle and was torn between painting and adding texture to a bottle or one of the many gorgeous ways I have seen you all alter your bottles when I came across a bottle that with some simple cut outs from the Stampington Co. free paper from a magazine would be perfect. Well, at least to me!

Here are the collage pages (forgot about the tutorial oops!):


I cut out all the pieces for the bottle and to make the adorable little pixie. I assembled her and cut the purple flower to fit her face for her hair.  I inked all the edges with Distress Ink Mowed Lawn.  I then added a metal flower with a brad in the center to attach to the top. The bottle had some awesome shiny gold on it so I left it and worked with it.  I want to fill it with some homemade bath salts in greens and gold for my bathroom shelf.  Really easy and I plan on making a bigger version of the pixie as an art doll so keep an eye out here for that.

And the finished bottle:

Now show us your altered art/mixed media ( you can find the link at the start of this post ) and let us visit your blog and leave you some love and be inspired by YOU!
Thanks for stopping by for my first tutorial at Rhedd's, Nanette xx

Wow!! Loving this ! That pixie is cute :). I have a few bottles I'm hoarding... Ahem storing :D to alter at some point, I've only ever altered using paints many moons ago and wanting to use more mixed media, you've inspired me to give it a go. TFS xx
