Latest project, DRESSMAKER art bottle

Just wanted to show you an art bottle I made from dressform and scissor images from Karen at Graphics Fairy. I decoupaged a vintage bottle with an old dress pattern, added a piece of tape measure around the "waist", added the images, a snippit of lace, and then bonded a bobbin with white thread to the top.

Hi Melissa,
What a fun bottle!! Such a creative project! Thanks so much for sharing it for "Brag Monday".

So pretty! Thanks for the heads up about the swaps. I've joined the two Spring ones you are in and I am definitely joining Heather's petite inspiration box one. I participated in her Valentine's one and loved it so I imagine this one will be fun too.

Hope you are doing well. Will be driving through Tennessee on our way to Florida next week for Spring Break and I'll be sure to yell "Hello, Melissa" out the car window so be listening!!
