Bottles UP!

It was art meetup day at my house on Tuesday, May 12th. The ladies came and boy did we work. Here's all the bottle girls. Maryam had left already for the group pic but there is a picture of hers here too!

The mission take a brown medicine bottle and an old prescription label and make something! AND make something the did!!!

First of all it was Bet's birthday THAT VERY DAY and I was happy she chose to come to art meetup as part of her birthday celebrating. Later in the day she took off to Disneyland. So we'll all have to check out her blog to see what else she did to celebrate.

I couldn't resist making a little birthday hat for Bet and some ATC cards. It's hard to see but the cup has a cupcake wrapper that says "Happy Birthday Bet". I cut this on my Cricut Expressions, I'm praticing. I was too lazy to bake cupcakes so I put it on a cup filled with candy. Anyway, I think Bet took great pics with her birthday hat on, don't you?

Here's is Mel's Willow, yes she has already named her. Shouldn't all dollies have names? Mel thought "outside the bottle" and took a dollie and redressed and altered her and put her on the bottle. I think she came out so cute!

This is Elena's doll. It's hard to tell from the picture but the little girl on the left lost her feet in the name of "art". Elena wanted to use a smaller bottle...it's a "princess thing" :} and she cut the feet off of little pink dollie and put on her bottle. Later she fixed the problem of getting the little doll to stand, she glued it on a ruler. Sooo cute!

Below is Bet's doll. She chose an old ceramic doll...hammered, deconstructed and reconstructed into this little cutie.

This is Kathleen's dollie. It always amazes me what people pick and how it turns out. Now I have a bunch of plastic doll heads, doesn't everyone? Kathleen picked this little old lady looking head and I had my doubts but she turned out amazing. The first picture below is how she looked leaving art meetup. The following two were pics Kathleen sent me after going home and finishing her up. She looks so FANTASTIC!!!

I wish I had a better picture of Maryam's bottle, anyone? She chose to not add doll head but made a beautiful tulle wrapped, winged beauty. Hopefully someone will have a better picture and send it to me so you can get the full impact of it's beauty.

A few pics of us having fun.................

And.....can you believe it? It was Bet's birthday and she brought ME a present. A beautiful porcelain doll. Oh my gosh, the dress is so lush. She saw it at the swap meet and thought of me....she was right on the money for sure. It has a price tag on the foot of $825!!! Wow Bet that was so thoughtful tee hee Now I have to research this girl and figure out where she came from a mystery....love it. Thanks so much Bet, she will have a place of honor in my studio ALWAYS :}

Who would have thunk it........bottles aren't just for drinking. Have a wonderful, creativity day!!!!
