Ok, is it just me, or does everyone do this? I have so much stuff I should be doing - making 19 charms for a swap, finishing my DT projects, etc. But instead I decide I need to spend the whole day making this.
My stamp club has started having challenges every other month. A couple months ago we were given a large plastic medicine bottle and a large brass tag. I ended up setting mine aside and never did come back to it. I missed the meeting where we were supposed to bring them and didn't think about it again.
We were reminded a couple days ago to bring them on Saturday so I guess it was in the back of my mind. Well, what better time to do it than now???
I absolutely love how it came out. The photos just don't do it justice! The best part is that I had such a blast working on it. Everything in it is recycled or found - lots of junk drawer stuff in there. After lots of tinkering with alcohol ink and spray paint, the ugly orange of the bottle ended up looking just like tortoiseshell. I covered the white cap with scraps of metal from RockCandy Studios that I embossed and colored w/various inks.
So, are you an Artistic Procrastinator?
