This was my entry for Craftster's monthly challenge #107: "Bottled Up". As you've doubtlessly already deduced from the title of said competition, the object was to make a piece of artwork utilizing some kind of bottle.
While trying to come up with an idea for a project, I looked at the various bottles littered around the house, to see if any of the shapes/colors would inspire me. In addition to those normal vessels, I recalled that I also had some miniature perfume/makeup bottle accessories, from various dolls, so I dug out the Ziplock bag that they were stored in and had a look. In particular, I focused on these three items that came with Mattel's 2005 My Scene: Goes to Hollywood Barbie:
A plastic Barbie perfume bottle accessory, newsprint, white glue, sewing thread (hair), embroidery thread (dress top), a wire twist tie (jewelry), a magazine advertisement (clutch purse veneer), acrylic paint, ink, and marker.
2.7 cm (1.1") wide x 4.6 cm (1.8") tall.
Two days; March 7th and 8th, 2015.
April 8th, 2015 Addendum:I was fortunate enough to be awarded first place in the Bottled Up challenge, as decided by a poll open to all of Craftster's forum members (thanks everybody!) The winner of Craftster's monthly challenge usually gets to select any one item from their online shops as a prize. After some consideration, I decided on one of lusterbunny's "Skull & Scissors" necklaces (which matches the canvas bag I got last time), but the virtual stores also carry a variety of other items like clothing, mugs, etc. Speaking of which, Craftster moderator "kittykill" was kind enough to send me a cool bonus "Rock is Dead. Long Live Paper and Scissors!" metal pin in my prize package too! The padded envelope arrived in the mail on 4/7/15:
