Welcome

Welcome! Artfully Musing is a blog dedicated to sharing art and the techniques and products used. I'll be showcasing collage, altered and mixed media art as well as miniature. I hope you'll check back often and are inspired. Thanks for visiting! Laura

NOTICE: AlphaStamps has moved to a new website. Unfortunately, I was not aware the product links in my blog posts would not forward to the products on the new website. This has affected both the links in the posts and my Collage Sheet & Digital Image Set Catalogs. I ask for your patience while I work to fix the links. I’ll be fixing the newest posts first working back in time. Lastly, I’ll fix the catalogs. In the meantime, if you encounter broken links and need to finding something you can either use the name of the product to search the new AlphaStamps.net site or you can email me using the “Email Me” button at the top of the left column of the blog and I will do what I can to help.

Altered Bottle


This bottle’s overall dimensions are 7 ½” x 3”.  I used decorative beads for the feet.  The gold on the top, neck and bottom of the bottle are metallic stickers.  They come in all sorts of designs and sizes. I purchase mine at Frantic Stamper.  The bottle is wrapped in beaded and fabric flowers and leaves.  The neck of the bottle is wrapped in beaded flowers.  The stopper is a picture frame.  I painted the brass dragonflies (purchased at Alpha Stamps) on the front with metallic paints and added Swarovski crystals for the eyes.  I used Glossy Accents to attach all of the elements.
I have several more bottles siting on my worktable so stay tuned for more.
