Smeared and Smudged August Hop

Hello, and welcome to the monthly member blog hop from Smeared and Smudged!  Our theme this month is PAINT!  I love working with paint, I’ve been doing a lot with it lately.:) 

My project for today is a small one, though.



I decided to alter/recycle this little bottle.  I’ll give you extra points if you can guess what it’s from.;)

I did something new here.  I heat embossed for the first time.  I used one of the Distress powders, so the stamp kind of turned out looking like a sandy, piratey poison symbol.:)

Here’s the hop list….

Ooh, this is very cool! I have no idea where the bottle is from though. Congrats on trying heat embossing! Those Distress Powders are funky. Totally different from regualr powders. It looks great on that skull!

I have no idea where the bottle came from. Due to the size I'd say it's a mini condiment bottle or a mini alcohol bottle, but the raised portions of the bottle are throwing me off. I can't wait to find out though! Great use of paint and embossing! Looks fabulous!

I love your bottle and your embossed skull turned out awesome! Hmmm... the bottle... I have no idea! It looks old by the top... so maybe a garage sale? LOL! Awesome job painting!!!

I love how your heat emboss came out using the distress powders. I have yet to try heat embossing! I love the bottle and also have no clue where it came from! You should have given us a hint! ;)

I saw where the bottle came from through your forum post so I can't guess. What a cool project! Love it. You have inspired me to try covering a bottle.
