The inspiration for Christmas in Blogland is abundant and I have been very excited about getting back in the studio and creating for the season. I love Christmas time and decorating for the holiday is one of my favorite things to! Because I have been having fun altering bottles recently I decided to make an altered bottle angel. The bottle is covered with lace and encaustic wax. The wings were made from an old cork coaster that I cut in half and then scalloped the edges. Then I covered it with glue and mica flakes and finally added the pearl embellishments. The head is an old round drawer pull with 2 glittered snowflake ornaments attached to back. A little "vintage" tinsel, some buttons and an old ornament and preso! bottle angel!! I think she needs a few friends now.
On another note... After much consideration, I finally decided to give my blog the makeover I have been wanting to do for a long time. I had my old header for several years now and although I liked it, it did not represent who I have become. I needed a lighter fresher look so that's the direction I went. I hope you like it!!
