Quick & Quirky Crew Challenge – “Perfume Bottle”

This week we continue the series of challenges for the Creative Crew called Quick & Quirky – a quick challenge where we share one commonly found object from our homes or studio and the Crew has one or two weeks to make something, anything and upload to Instagram, Facebook using the hashtag ‪#‎ccbquickquirkyproject‬. The challenge item must be incorporated in the project somehow and the Crew Member must use at least one product from Canvas Corp Brands. They can add anything else they wish. The goal is to have fun, without stress and simply pimp their stash!  We are thinking about expanding this challenge to everyone so comment if you would like us to do that.

We award one winner for the quirkiest project – $15 gift card to spend in the CCB Online Shop! Our challenge item this past challenge was to use a PERFUME BOTTLE.

This week we have a really set of cool items to show! We thought Kimberly, that transformed two bottles, project was the most quirky this week.  Can you imagine that the beauty below was one of two plain glass bottles?

Altered Parfume Bottle


Kimberly took this adorable perfume bottle and altered it into a steampunk Purdue bottle.

This is her description on how she made the one above:

I started with painting the bottle with Tattered Angels Decor & DIY Paint in the color Ebony. After drying I took copper crackle paint and painted over top,  then I added more texture effect by applying more of the Decor & DIY paint and after more drying some mica powder. I then layered my fussy cut outs from 7gypsies Ordre du jour collection paper “Days, weeks & months. 

To add dimension I layered 7gypsies Industrial Gears, Vintage clips, Princesca hardware crystals and other embellishments. I used a 7gypsies book cover for a lovely display for my Steam Punk bottle.

Kimberlys second bottle looks like this:

Angelique Jarrier used a bigger bottle together with Tattered Angels Decor & DIY paint in the color Ivory together with some of her favorite Tattered Angel Glimmer Mists. The transformation is striking.

And don´t let little details stop you! Kim Rippere took this challenge another direction;

“I don’t have a perfume bottle. I considered buying one for this but…no. Then I found a shampoo bottle that will work!”

Oh yes – it works – we think this project is equally as stunning!
