Over at Just For Fun (link on the side bar) Zoe has chosen plastic/acrylic for this week’s challenge theme. Cheers Zoe! LOL! I have stamped on to serviettes to decorate some plastic bottles/containers for this weeks challenge.
This is the one I am entering into the challenge.
I used a plain coloured serviette from the kitchen and stamped all over it using staz-on ink. The serviettes are 3 ply so I divided the layers and just used one of them.
I covered the bottle, sections at a time, with serviette craft glue and pieces of serviette. I use a product by Fontorpin but there are others on market. I used a bathroom sponge to apply the glue. I didn’t bother to much about getting the tissue/serviette wrinkle free as I quite like the wrinkled look. I then coated the whole surface again with another coat of the glue. When that was dry I patted some distressing ink over in places and the sprayed the bottle with Oritas spray varnish to seal. I added the tags just to hide the bottle shape a little.
I made a couple more items in a similar way.
For this one I tore a plain serviette into strips and then applied it as above. I stamped onto a piece of serviette paper and coloured the flowers and bee with distressing inks using a paint brush. I sprayed the small stamped piece with spray varnish to seal in the inks and then glued it to the jar.
This is the third item I made.
For this one I just used a strip of torn serviette around the middle applying it as above. The orange flower is cut out from a patterned serviette again only using the one ply.
The top one I am filling with coffee beans and the middle one I am filling with dried lavender as small fun gifts for a couple of friends I am seeing tomorrow.
This is what I started with
The small rings of plastic are from an old tube of silicon. I did think I could have decorated those as serviette holders. The two other photos are just something I wanted to share. Freddie takes old silicon out of the tube if it has gone hard and recycles it. He has used it to make gate and door stopper. He also slices it to make washers. Just thought I would share that. Just to prove we really are scrotters! LOL!
