It's summer time here, and you think fondly of a refreshing swim, preferably in the sea of course :-)

Sea Adventures - Altered Bottle


Welcome everyone!


I was inspired to create a glass bottle in altered art. 

  I simply love to work 

with moulds and modelling clay

and an Under the Sea theme is always one of my favourites. 


  An upcyling idea, I used a liquor bottle as base

 and modeled with silicone moulds and theme suitable MDF shapes.

Illustrated step by step guide


some outcast's made with silicone moulds and airdrying clay

glued as frame with assembly adhesives

supplemented with MDF shapes

and gauze


ship lantern was pressed into the still wet modelling clay with a piece of wire, 

it can move freely

a perfect rocking element in heavy sea 😅

after the drying process everything was painted over with black gesso,

only for the middle part I used grey chalky paint


coloured with green gold metallic wax and white acrylic paint

+ Art stones in various sizes


highlighted with golden metallic wax

used Calico Craft Parts


Ship's Lantern

 Spider Web

Coin Seaweed - MDF Wood Shape Style 5

Galleon Boat MDF Wood Shape - Style 10

Sheet of Mini MDF Nautical Motifs Style 1

Bella Italia with 13@rts


Welcome everyone!


Summer, sun and a delicious italian ice cream, what could be better? 

When I discovered the beautiful 'Bella' collection at 13 arts 

I was inspired to create a new mixed media summer layout.


 A little bit vintage, a little bit old and dilapidated, 

that's how I remember the romantic alleys and streets on Lake Garda. 

My last summer holiday in Italy was a little while ago, 

but I still remember it very fondly. 


But you can find a little bit of italy here too, even if it's just a really 

delicious italien ice cream parlour.


 used materials

 Sunrise collection - Daylight


some close up's



Brought some life into the summer layout by creating an awning for a cosy shady seating. 

Used two straws and matching paper from Sunrise collection. 

Together with some outcasts from Prima IOD silicone moulds a wonderful ambience. 

Have a beautiful summer time!

Thanks for your visit!
