A Touch of Spring; Mixed Media Glass Bottle

Hello everyone. Lisa here and welcome to my first post as part of the Itsy Bitsy Design Team.

I have a big interest in mixed media and altered art. I love turning something  that is ordinary or boring into something that is amazing and different with a bit of imagination and fantastic products.

So, for my first project, I decided to alter a glass bottle which is shaped like a lightbulb with a cork stopper. You can also get ideas from here to make your ‘Spring’ theme project to take part in Itsy Bitsy’s Blog Challenge this month.


First, I put a small amount of the Little Birdie Grainy Texture Paste on to a non-stick mat and added a couple of drops of Little Birdie Frosted Pool Gold Alcohol Splash and mixed them together with a pallete knife.

This created the gorgeous teal blue coloured texture paste. I applied it to the glass bottle with my finger rather than a pallete knife to add more texture and left it to dry.

I cut a piece of the handmade Burlap Ribbon approx 20cm and pulled the longer length of the Burlap apart .

I put three lengths together and knotted them with the next three lengths to make a rope.

I wrapped the rope around the middle and the neck of the glass bottle.

I chose a selection of Little Birdie handmade flowers to add  as decoration.

I added two of the Royal Ferns to the neck of the bottle.

Then added a Sea Foam Linen Paper flower to the neck of the bottle.

I added a flower from the Argyle Ocean Sparkle pack in the centre of the bottle.

Thereafter I added some of the Teal Rustic Mini Daisies to the bottom and the neck of the bottle.

I did a second bottle and have displayed them on my bookcase in my sitting room.

I do hope you like what I have done for my first project for the team and I hope I have inspired you to try some altered art. Get going and create your ‘Spring’ theme projects with Little Birdie flowers….we are waiting to see your unique creations.

Toodles for now,   Lisa xxx
