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.
