Gecko Galz project #1

Found Object: mermaid in a bottle.  I drizzled alcohol inks down the outside of a clear glass bottle that a friend gave me.  I used a Sharpie to darken the stopper which had been white.  I stamped with a specimen stamp I have onto a tag that I 'aged'.

The crowing glory though is the digital stamp from Gecko Galz from the mermaid series.  I printed her out onto vellum so she would show on both sides of the bottle.  To make her tail glimmer and glow, I painted her with LuminArt's Twinkling H20s.  Her hair and skin were colored with a soft color pencil.

I think this is one of the best pieces of "altered art" that you have done! Love it. GOT to try those alcohol inks on glass.
