Mixed media on a miniature bottle...by Yvonne Yam


I love these miniature alcohol bottles you get on the plane...they are so fun to upcycle and make pretty decor for your desk.


I started by scrunching some Donna Salazer Designs crepe paper and adhering to the bottle. The I added some gold and bronze paint with my fingers. When that dried, I added some Golden glass bead gel for even more texture.


Then I added some washi tape and Golden gold mica flakes. And finished off with a gold button from the Zeus and Zoe store.

Now I'm off to make more of these mixed media bottles to pretty up my desk! Cheers, Yvonne.
