3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Steampunk bottle on: May 04, 2014 08:16:33 PM
This pin started my project... http://www.pinterest.com/pin/84020349272930643/
And this pin also gave me ideas on decorating it : http://www.pinterest.com/pin/84020349272556561/ I think it came out very cool!!

.

But when I put the masking tape all over the bottle I remember that project we did in elementary school.  After ripping the masking tape and covering the bottle I painted it with shoe polish.  It leaves it with a faux leather look and that is totally steampunk!!
Hehe yea I used a starbucks bottle...

The first look:
 

Then I glued clogs and assorted little of this a little of that......
This is what it looks like on all four sides...





I even made the wire on the side.

Very nice! I couldn't put that in my bathroom (kitchen maybe)
because for some crazy reason my soap in there always likes to jump to the floor. Sad

My faux stained glass pictures.
 
My inspiration was one of my pins. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/84020349272296021/  I tried cutting pop cans and just ended up with bloody fingers!! I was kinda disappointed then I saw all my recycling and I got a great idea!!!! (of course it was one of those thinking thinking about what I could do for this challenge) I thought yes I can  do that with paper and plastic!!! Yea I got so excited.   

  I started with many empty containers. 
I painted a cake board I got from work black.

I sat in front of the DVR and cut tissue boxes... have a number of them cause of a head cold.. into the squares that became the "frame" .

First I placed the squares on the board thinking I would cut the pieces to fit like Jill Helms my  inspiration art but I just glued the squares down and thought I do it like a mosaic.  The sun was my first picture The rays are boxes, chocolate container and baking soda box.  The middle was the lid to my oatmeal container.  I glued yellow paper over it.  the wrinkles give it a sweet effect.

Then I thought I use t-shirt paint to outline the edges to help it look even more like stained glass. While cleaning up I thought oh wow I could even make a star picture with all that I had left over! AND I still have time to make and post before the challenge was over why not? I am on a roll.



Covering the picture with mod podge to seal it in....
So what ya think??
