----------Miss T's Pickers Project: Altered Bottles-------
Just wanted to post a friendly reminder that our Pickers Project Workshops are just around the corner...this Saturday and next Wednesday. I so wish that I could be there with you , my fellow Pickers, but I'm still out recovering from surgery...I am leaving you in great hands though and I want you to all promise to send me pics of your altered bottles ...I'm always so inpsired by your work ladies!!! I will be looking for them...
It's the perfect time of year...(I think) to alter bottles...With the Bewitching Hour soon here, I thought it would be fun to do a Spooky version of Potion Bottles...so, so, so fun and easy to cast a creative spell on your bottles...so many ghastly tips & tricks to share with you....
If potion bottles aren't your thing...no worries! You could create a lovely vintage, romantic version....You will love adorning your bottles with charming trinkets, treasures, and it's a great way to repurpose old jewelry and other vintage findings...Altered bottles make such wonderful home accents...so full of charm and character...
Here is the info regarding our workshop this month and suggested items to bring with you to class...
