Now for Something COMPLETELY different!

Hi all!
Becky here today to share a project I did using one of the 11 1/2" Scallop Circles from Creative Cuts & More...but not in the usual way!

I am OBSESSED with the gorgeous (& sometimes strange!) hand-decorated glass bottles you can find in shops & all over the internet. I made one similar to this one for our niece, who is a ballerina/student in Chicago. Her little bottle was my inspiration for this one & I was thrilled to use this large scallop as my base for another one I plan to sell on Etsy!
The Black Swan
The base of the "fan" behind the bottle is that 11 1/2" Scallop Circle - I folded it in half & then again several times like a fan; then glittered the edges with silver. Between the bottle & the scallop circle is a large black flower & some feathers! 
I had a lot of fun with this one!! 
 Here's some more pix for you...
The body is supported on chipboard & placed inside the bottle with a collection of small beads...
The bottom of the bottle is surrounded with a small feather boa (photographed on top of an upside down flower frog).
I purposely made her head slightly large to add a little more funk & edge.
Hope you enjoyed my quirky post today...I'm sure there will be more to come in the future!
See you soon!
