Stampotique Girly Girl challenge

Copic Markers

I took a class her in town offered by the makers of Copic Markers to learn to use them, the class was for store owners, and then opened up to others if there was space left, I was an other, and I was allowed in. The person here in the picture is Maryanne, she used to be an art teacher, and I wish she would have run the whole class as I learned more from her one demo. then the other teacher all day.

Water bottle wreath tutorial

The bottom of these water bottles remind me of flowers, so I cut the bottom off of several, using first a kitchen knife, and then scissors to trim the edges.

Once all the pieces were cut out, I painted the inside and the outside, it took a few layers of paint to get a good coating.

Using a strafoam wreath from the craft store, and a glue gun, I glued down each piece, The heat from the glue melted some of the plastic to give it a unique feel.
