From the Designer: "A fun mixed media, upcycle project using various product from Plaid Enterprises. This project is the perfect way to upcycle a beautiful bottle into a happy home decor piece! Plaid products included Crackle Medium, Metallic acrylic paint and Extreme Glitter paint. Love the crackled metallic surfaces and the glitter gathered in the cracks. The details, shimmer and colors result in a project that you will happily display for yourself and others to enjoy. Warning: Once you upcycle one bottle, you can't help but look for more bottles to upcycle!"

Wow! Sometimes I just come across art that's nothing short of sophistication. This upcycled bottle could have ended up in the dump but with a few coats of that mixed media paint and some feathers, you could have this piece that is sure to be a great conversation starter.
