Center Stage with Prima

Thank you PRIMA for partnering with Altered Pages this month. I love the  Prima Art Alchemy Acrylic Paints.  So far this month I have used them on metal, canvas, chipboard and now glass.  I only used gesso on the canvas because it was white and wanted it to be black.  I have not had any issues with The  Prima Art Alchemy Acrylic Paints on any surfaces. 
 
Today I am sharing my altered bottle.  
 


Supplies:
Prima Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint:
  Metallique Dark Forest
  Metallique Soft Satin
  Sparks Dragon Eye

Prima Flowers
Altered Pages Collage - 1709 Marie Antoinette 
Bottle to alter
Manila Tag
Inks
Steampunk butterfly & Key- Chipboard
Tacky Glue
Glue Stick
Twine or Burlap


To start use Tacky Glue to adhere twine as it is wrapped around the bottle.  Let the glue dry overnight.  Paint the bottle with Prima Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint:  Metallique Dark Forest, let it dry
 
Paint chipboard butterfly with Prima Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint: Metallique Soft Satin, let it dry.  Then paint the key and gears with Sparks Dragon Eye, set aside to dry.
 
With a rag or paper towel gently rub Prima Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint: Sparks Dragon Eye over the Metallique Dark Forest on the bottle, leaving just a hint of gold on the surface. 

Once the Sparks Dragon Eye has dried on the chipboard pieces gently rub them with Metallique Dark Forest to distress them.

Distress the Manila Tag with assorted inks.  Fussy cut Marie image from the Altered Pages Collage - 1709 Marie Antoinette. Adhere to manila tag with glue stick.  

Adhere image of Marie to manila tag with glue stick.  With a rag add a touch of Metallique Soft Satin to the edges of the tag.
 
Use twine to attach the key and tag to the neck of the bottle.
 
Attach the flowers and butterfly to the bottle.   
 

What a beautiful centerpiece for any table.

Hope you were inspired to create with Prima and Altered Pages!!!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
