Bottle Garden

Hello Friends, Today I have a colorful project to share giving a fresh nature feeling! 
It's a bottle box in garden theme made with an empty water bottle. These plastic bottles are lying at everybody's house and I just thought of using it in some way. Had no idea what I'll do on this but then start working with chalk acrylic paints. This is my first time I am using chalk paints and I was excited to use them on a plastic bottle! 

Here I have used matt chalk paint "sailing sky" shade from Itsy Bitsy store. Firstly I prepared the bottle with a coat of gesso then gave it a coat of chalk paint followed by some strokes of black acrylic paint. Then added some script design using stencil and texture paste. 

Next step was to embellish it with all flora & fauna.....I used heat embossed chipboards, flowers, leaves, pollen, beads, metal dragon fly. For the lid I thought of using natural twine and I think it really matched well with other embellishments. And did you noticed my tiny rabbit (chipboard) sitting near the bushes and enjoying greenery! I have used color splash in lime green shade to add that green touch. Some more color splash on my flowers...

Birdie chipboard was perfect on the top! 

Back side of my bottle....

So here is my bottle with what I started...I have separated the upper portion and my lid is made of chipboard and twine.

I hope you all liked my bottle garden. Do share with me, I love to read what you say :)
