It's gone wonky!
A few days ago i did a swap with Debie from Piskies and Poppets. My parcel arrived safely with Debie on Wednesday and yesterday the wonderful parcel debie sent arrived.
I love getting parcels and always look forward to them.
I will take some photos of what Debie sent tomorrow because the light is so bad here today my pictures won't do everything justice. But all i can say is it was like christmas morning as a child. Everything is so beautiful and i'm now totally inspired to make lots of new miniatures.
Not often are people as generous as Debie has been and i'm ever so thankful for all the wondeful goodies. Will post all about the swap fully tomorrow.
Anyway, tucked in the parcel was a fab bottle that Debbie made and uses as props for her dolls. Well being me i was so intrigued as to how it was made. I kind of guessed but after emailing Debie she let me know how she gets the wonderful aged look to her bottles and the lovely colours. So i've ordered the correct ink to enable me to colour all the bottles you can see i've been busy making since last night.
Some of the bottles don't stand and will be for hanging from witch and wizards waists or from racks.
As you can see many of them are wonky but this is what i want... lol.
The large one which is too big for 1:12th i've made a twisted neck for and making as a present for Kat the Hat. The glass bauble was also sent by Debie.
A little while back Kat mentioned she is making potion bottles for her window ledge hence why i'm making it so big. If you are reading this Kat this is why i'm now late again sending your parcel.
Excuse my waffling and probably saying everything twice today. In a mad rush because the kids will all walk through the door any second.
Top pictures shows the bottle Debie sent and the bottom pictures shwos the bottles i'm working on. They will have string and beads tied to them too!
