I am particularly proud of this one because I used stuff just lying around my studio and recycle bin. I would love to say that I came up with the idea of the bell jar using a plastic bottle, but the fab MJ Girling had it on her blog last year. You can check out the Link here...http://lifeartcollide.blogspot.ca/2012/10/soda-bottle-bell-jars.html
A huge thank-you to her, cause she's awesome and very creative.
I cut the base out of scrap foam core and stained the top with Gathered Twigs distress stain.
Now to build the scene...
I didn't have any floral foam, so I cut a cardboard paper tube and covered it with rustic wood paper..
I hot glued them to the base and started attaching my vines. Recognize the material? Brown paper bag strips that have been twisted up. I added some thin gauge wire around them to make it more "bendable" then it was just a matter of hot gluing everything in place.
Aarrrggg, tried to take this picture 5 times. This was the best one. Kinda crappy but you can get the idea of the finished effect.
Thanks for taking a look today, I appreciate all the kind comments I've received. Cheers!
