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

My work tables are currently covered in all kinds of bottles and bits and bobs to alter them.  If bottles are your thing, stay tuned for several future bottle posts (some with tutorials).
This particular bottle is colored with Alcohol Ink.  The gold stems and leaves are metallic stickers.  I filled the leaves with microbeads and added rhinestones to the round areas.  The final touches are the brass dragonflies, bees and flowers.   The stopper is a crystal drawer pull.
