Upcycled Bottle

Blog Quick Quotes is having an upcycle challenge this month. I had this empty bottle to play with and had a lot of fun playing with it.

Acrylic paint doesn't stick real well to glass on it's own so I asked my BFF Renee who is a decorative painter, designer, etc. over at Plum Purdy  (she owns it too) how to get around that and she told me that I needed to first put a coat of paint adhesion medium on the bottle. She very kindly sent me a bottle from her inventory.

After sponging the medium on, I made puddles of purple, cream, blue and sunflower paints and sponged them on in a bit of a mish mash. When that coat dried I went over it again with the blue and cream then again with the purple and cream paints.

When the paint was dry I added a layer of Mod Podge then added some bling from Zva Creative, flowers from Queen and Co. and a bow using ribbon from my stash.
The flowers were cut using Cricut's Mother's Day cartridge, I hot glued them to floral wire and added some leaves I cut using one of my punches.
I am entering this project into this challenges:
