Time Capsule

I'm mixing Andy Skinner with Mark Montano, both of DecoArt, not sure if that's a good mix or not!! Anyhow, moving on, I covered a bottle in text paper just the same as the last post.

Painted the bottle in media translucent yellow iron oxide, added a few images here and there, parts from die cuts and some more netty lacy stuff around the bottom. The white stuff you can see is media textured sand paste mixed with media matte vanish as I wanted to create some texture.

Next I added a gazillion colours of DecoArt paint from the media range until I was totally happy with the look I wanted to achieve to create the rusty / patina look.

Close up of the neck of the bottle over the media textured sand paste.

I added in random words and numbers from an Andy Skinner stencil with media white gesso.

Stenciling on the neck of the bottle.

To blend the media white gesso in I created an Andy dirty wash. 

I was in two minds at this stage as I really loved the colours and the texture and didn't want to cover them up, but I did initially set out with Mark Montano's technique in mind, so I carried on with the embellishing.

I added fibres and charms.

Clocks and a windy up key.

Some chain and more charms.

String, ribbon and more keys.

And I found a great stopper in my stash for the top, it's a perfect fit.

All products are from the DecoArt media range.

Andy Skinner is also hosting a 'Time' challenge, where you have to use at least one of his products, think I've covered that!!
