Recycled Peacock bottle and gift box set

Dear friends

am back after a long time,a quick post to share another painted bottle with all of you....

Decoupage and glass colors
I have used Glass colors and decoupage on the bottle. The peacock design is on both sides of the bottle. I have used water based glass colors by Hobby ideas in  blue and green on the bottle and a teeny- tiny bit of glitter around the decoupaged image. Used two coats of varnish to seal the colors and the image. The gorgeous papers are from Mesmerising India collection by Divya Thallap available with Craftslane. The bottle is a recycled liquor bottle and the box a coffee mug pack. The box is also decoupaged using same collection and I have distressed the edges by using metallic acrylic colors in metallic blue/green shades.

The top of the box and two sides have been stencilled using homemade texture paste and fancy Feathers stencil and then painted in blue/ green and a little bit of gold dust powder. This is how it looks with the lights  ...................

Altered mobile cover

Hi Friends

Just tried the awesome stencil designed by Divya Thallap of Yelling Yellow and available from Craftslane.

I have used the stencil with the Texture paste from Camel and left to dry. Used Camel Photo colors in Deep Yellow, light Blue and Crimson directly with a dropper. Use a tissue to absorb extra color if needed.

The butterfly and alpha are MDF cut outs from Craftslane, these have been covered with texture paste and glitter glue applied in purple, blue and pink.  
The butterfly is simply a combination of a bead and flower pollen.......

Sequins in pearl yellow and teal are layered and a tiny pearl adhered in the center with glossy accents. Hope you can see the glossy layers and texture on to the stenciled surface as well as on the embellishments. I have used multiple layers of Sapphire Transparent Glass stain to seal the stenciled layers and colors and to adhere the embellishments, I have loved using this product as it is super glossy, dries fast and gives a resin like effect.

I am happy with my artsy custom made phone cover, hope you all like it..
