Perfume Bottle Tutorial - Cherish The Memory

Hi everyone, Today I am sharing a tutorial on how I have upcycled a glass air freshener bottle for my post with Cherish The Memory.

I started by giving my bottle a coat of Gesso, this helps to give the glue something to grip onto and shows the colour of the Decoupage papers off better than it going onto a clear surface.

I tore my beautiful shabby look Decoupage Paper into small pieces and glued in place on my bottle.

Once dry I added a fairly thick layer of Crackle Glaze being careful not to have drips. This took a couple of hours to dry thoroughly.

Once dry I coated it in Antiquing Cream, letting this dry for a few minutes before rubbing back with an old cloth to reveal the crackles.

I then sealed my bottle with a couple of coats of Gloss Varnish.

I love how it now looks like crazed porcelain.

I added my pretty Gemstone Tape to the neck of the bottle. Cherish The Memory stock several styles of this tape in a selection of Gems and Pearls and is the perfect finishing touch.

I added some Copper Embossing Powder to the base of my bottle. My Crafty Individuals perfume stamp was stamped in Archival Ink adding some Embossing Powder around the edges and shading my card with Tattered Rose ink.

I mounted this onto a little cheesecloth, glued in place adding a couple of butterflies to finish.

Happy Summer

Hi everyone today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing inspiration using some of their fab Nautical Dies on my card which could easily be adapted onto a Scrapbook layout.

My card measures approximately 6 inches square and I started by adding some torn Shabby layers to my card using Maja Design papers along with some cheesecloth, micro beads and lace.

My Doily and Angel Wing were added to the centre of my card with foam strips along with an accent of the Ships Helm.

My Lighthouse was cut out in 2 patterned papers to form the stripes and backed with cream cardstock. My Anchor I highlighted the chain with a bronze coloured Promarker. I added some shells and dried flowers to compliment my Starfish and Sand Dollar Dies.

Happy Birthday

Hi everyone, today for my DT post with Cherish The Memory I'm sharing a feminine design using the Studio Vintage Line.

My base layer was tattered with scissors at the edges and some Distress Ink added to highlight it. My next layer was also tattered at the edges and rubbed along my Versamark Ink pad. I then sprinkled Copper Embossing Powder onto it and heat set adding some lace and part of a Doily for added detail.
My sweet diecut picture frames I added Stickles to for extra sparkle and mounted with foam tape.

My tag also has Copper Embossing Powder added, pretty die cut flowers and a butterfly finishing off with a shabby ribbon.

Always Remember

Hi everyone, today my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs showcases some of the beautiful flowers available from Cheery Lynn. 

My card has been made using papers from Maja Design starting by cutting and tattering the edges of my base layer which measures approximately 6 inches square, I then layered my stamped sentiment placing it behind my die cut frame with a lace Border.

My flowers have a variety of centres, my large flowers have been inked at the edges and my die cut centre added which is formed by rolling the die cut around tweezers and gluing in place. 

Once dry you simply fan out the rolled die cut add a little Ink for definition and glue in place.

My smaller blue flowers have a blob of Glossy Accents in the centre and Micro Beads poured on top with a sprinkling of Glamour Dust for added Sparkle. Finishing my card off with a spritz of white from my Chalk Markers.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you feel inspired to make some flowers.

Crafty Hugs,
