BLOGGERS CHALLENGE -- ALTER IT

PLEASE CLICK IMAGE FOR DETAILED VIEW

I really enjoy working on altered art. This "Bottle Art" is created using an empty brown barbecue sauce bottle, an image from Paper Whimsey, a music sheet I aged and distressed, brass hinges, a little brass heart with the word 'love' on it; some burlap, some distressed cheesecloth, a leather strap with a brass charm, some wheels from Tim Holtz; some pounded and distressed copper; and a chipboard key painted in antique gold. The tiered topper is created with jewelry beads. I should have taken additional photos of the sides and back, sorry, never thought about it at the time.

This bottle is really elegant. It looks like it should hold the finest wine (but barbecue sauce! who would believe)
