It's August at Rhedd's Creative Spirit and Finnabair Style Time Again

From a tiny steampunk house back to my much beloved Finnabair sytle!  This set of wine bottle and glasses has been in various stages of being finished for over a month now.  I never quiet liked the end results and out the paint would come and more layers added to only be covered up again ending with something very similar to the beginning one!  Frustration reigned and I must say still does!  I love most of the finished piece now but still didn't get the light areas I wanted in the right way.  But there comes a point when it is time to put the sprays and paints down and say enough! 

I was lucky enough to be given a bag of old watches and decided I wanted this heart shaped one as the focal piece of my wine bottle.

The bits and pieces used on all three pieces are mostly air dried clay, metal pieces from the desk caddy, and some metal steampunk pieces.  All were adhered with hot glue.
So now it has a place of honor if for nothing else but the sheer number of layers! in my china cabinet!  I love this wonderful technique created by Anna Dabrowska who you can find here and explore tons of Finnabair style makes! 
I hope you can join us this month at Rhedd's Creative Spirit Challenge blog and enter your altered/mixed art!  We see so many inspiring projects each month and it would be nice to be inspired by you!  
Happy Crafting!
