My Journal cover finished.

I am doing a 2012 journal but couldn't decide how to do the cover BUT yesterday an idea came to me....well really I should have been doing housework well we all know housework always waits for us....but a creative idea must be done straight away lol.
I actually had the window sitting on my table for about 2 weeks but wasn't sure how to do it...
I played with paints, texture paste, Glimmer mists,Gel medium, glitter, diamond dust, Versa colour,papers and stencils.
and this is how it turned out.

A Mixed Media bottle for Lets get shabby #30

Lets get shabby challenge #30.
At least 4 must be noticeable on your project.

holly/ivy/mistletoe/wreath (can use more than one but counts as one choice)
It can be either a Christmas project OR any other big annual Family/Religious Celebration
Well I think I have covered everything.
This mixed Media wine bottle took me 2 weeks, so many layers and waiting for the layers to dry, I didn't want to use a heat gun just wanted things to dry naturally.
A recycled wine bottle using many recycled products, before I threw anything out I would think can I use this on the bottle lol, it is my first wine bottle and it won't be my last I had so much fun, just let my muse lead the way !!!!
