This was my entry for Craftster's monthly challenge #107: "Bottled Up". As you've doubtlessly already deduced from the title of said competition, the object was to make a piece of artwork utilizing some kind of bottle.
While trying to come up with an idea for a project, I looked at the various bottles littered around the house, to see if any of the shapes/colors would inspire me. In addition to those normal vessels, I recalled that I also had some miniature perfume/makeup bottle accessories, from various dolls, so I dug out the Ziplock bag that they were stored in and had a look. In particular, I focused on three items that came with Mattel's 2005 My Scene: Goes to Hollywood Barbie. As I inspected them, it occurred to me that the pink translucent bottle resembled the shape of a woman's legs and torso in a gown, and thus, the idea for this project was born.
A plastic Barbie perfume bottle accessory, newsprint, white glue, sewing thread (hair), embroidery thread (dress top), a wire twist tie (jewelry), a magazine advertisement (clutch purse veneer), acrylic paint, ink, and marker.
2.7 cm (1.1") wide x 4.6 cm (1.8") tall.
Two days; March 7th and 8th, 2015.
