Prima March 2016 PPP

Hi guys! I'm here to share my take on the March 2016 Prima PPP. I'd already started altering this scotch bottle I'd saved for the purpose when Miranda Edney shared her wonderful altered bottles on Live With Prima, but I do have to confess I picked up a couple suggestions from her and incorporated those into my bottle.

I was really excited to incorporate the new Opal Magic Violet-Green paint and Artisan powders into this project, and everything grew around my desire to try out those two products.

I started by painting the clean bottle with white gesso. Once it had dried, I then used a foam brush to pounce on super heavy gesso for a rough, weathered texture. I let it dry naturally, then painted it with some Opal Magic Violet-Green paint, which is green on a white background with a subtle violet shimmer. I later added Lime Wedge Color Bloom spray, painted on to control where it went. To add some weathering to the project, I used some Artisan powder (love this stuff!).

I had some old Chantelle Medallion lace flowers in my stash from years ago; I sprayed them with Cotton Candy and Peony Color Bloom Spray (and sprayed some seam binding at the same time) to incorporate the pinks from the PPP.   

For the grey in the color palette, I pulled out some of the new Salvage District papers. I adhered a "label" cut from one piece to my bottle using Gel Medium, and fussy cut details to act as a focal point.

My bottle topper is a sandwich of Vintage Vanity bottle caps with a second Medallion flower between them, filled in with Glass and Micro Beads in greens and topped with a Relics and Artifacts flame which I sprayed with spray adhesive and then brushed with Mica and Artisan powders.  

Here are some closeups:
