Here is the Inspirations by our GDT's

Revamp your Scrap Bottles by GDT Ria Banerjee
I started with Acrylic Spray Paints viz. Orange and Yellow. Make sure that the wine bottle is cleaned before applying spray on it. I sprayed yellow first, then applied orange from the top. Let it dry for  an hour. Do not apply too much color as it will increase the opacity. Take black acrylic paint and draw whatever comes to your mind. I prefer silhouette image will provide the opacity and the image will come to life.Insert LED lights from the top and you are done! For more details check here

Time to revamp your scrap : Bottles by GDT Ria Banerjee

In Second Project,
I started with white Acrylic spray paint and painted on the bottle.
I took a decoupage napkin and glued to the bottle.
I took some peacock feathers that I had in my home and some leaves to embellish.
I took mulberry flowers and glittered pollens (I made with glue and glitter) and adhered on the bottle.
I finished it with some aluminum foil, wrapping it on the neck.

Altered Household Items by Guest DT Richa

To alter the pen stand, follow the same steps. Cover it with mod podge, layers of tissue paper and black gesso/acrylic paint. Leave it to dry. To embellish punch out some flowers and emboss the petals with embossing tool. I have added the button in the shape of a butterfly and have also added plastic embellishment spelling 'Dear Friend' To Make this/For More Details Click here
