     This altered bottle is my entry to Challenge #14 Vol. 3, page 53, where I have attempted to unravel the mystery of Colored Crackle!
     The Challenge is hosted by Linda Ledbetter at her blog Compendium of Curiosities.


     There is also a "Lucky Draw" being sponsored by The Funky Junkie Boutique.

 I filled this bottle with sand to add weight as my final project is a bookend.

I put two layers of Gesso on bottle and used a stencil with texturing paste for the sides.

This shows the challenge technique applied to one of the flowers.

The Curiosity Crew's Choice will be awarded a prize sponsored by Tim Holtz and Mario Rossi. One of the requirements of this challenge is not to reveal the technique used but you can buy your own signed copy of Compendium of Curiosities Vol 3 to discover what it is and have as much fun as I did!
