Altered Bottle and Fabric Tag

I really enjoy doing altered art of any kind. This an old vintage bottle I added some fun things to. The pendant with faces are from my collection of old vintage photos, the pendent was originally an older piece that I either got at a garage sale in a box of costume jewelry or it was in some stuff someone gave me. I can't remember which, but I had fun redoing it . I have a photo of what it did look like before I changed it.



This is "The Before" picture.

Not the best picture, but this is "The After" picture








This a fabric tag I made for a very sweet fellow blogger, I hope she likes it!


I made the little bird nest out of copper wire and I made the eggs out of polymer clay that I tinted light blue with just a small amount of blue clay added to white clay. Then I shaped them into egg shapes, put them in the copper nest and baked them. The nest is about the size of a quarter.

I love your Faces from the Past collection--what a clever way to display vintage photos! Donna--tell me what kind of Royal Wedding mug you would like and how much you would be willing to pay, and when I go back to London later in the month, I'll see if I can find you one.
