Evil Libations

Hello again ghouls and boys...
Today's 31 Days of Halloween Hop offering is a chilly bottle of evil libations to wet your whistle. 

 I started my project with a wine bottle that I just really loved the shape of. 
It is a very thick, sturdy glass and I felt that it will stand the test of 
time being brought out year after year for Halloween. 

Of course, I found amazing collage images at Altered Pages
I also used some eerily fun images from Smeared and Smudged
Such a great selection at both .coms. You really need to check them out!

You can see in the picture below that I started with text pages, graphic 45 papers and collage images. 
I built them up laying here and there. You can find a sampling of amazing collage images here. 

After decoupaging all papers I added the cork back to the bottle. 
I then wired up some fun little resin skulls and poked them right into the cork. 
After allowing ample dry time and all layers were complete I finished off 
my dastardly concoction with colorful fibers tied around the neck of the bottle. 
I then embellished with gears, crystals and a key. 
You know to lock up the liquor cabinet when we are all done partaking. 

Happy Halloween!!!
Stephanie S.

 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.
