GLASS BOTTLES for AJJ and a thank you x

Hello :)

It's the last day of May already and this means it's my last post for Elegance and Grunge theme at AJJ :( so first I'd like to begin by saying many thanks again to Susi for inviting me to be the guest host this month - thank you xx.  

For my final page I created this in my journal using a mix of Neocolor 2 and 1 mainly.
I sketched the bottles on some rough paper first before tracing and copying down on to my journal page. On the top layer of the background - I placed 2 different embossing folders under my page and rubbed over top using the Neocolor 1's. The quote was printed off from pc and then coloured. I added some irridescent glitter glue around the words and on the heart and on the faux jewels by label but the sparkle isn't showing very well in the photo.

Lastly I'd like to say a say a huge thank you also to everyone who visited here and left lovely comments or created pages for this theme and linked up to AJJ. I had a fantastic month seeing all your wonderful blogs and ideas on the theme - you made it a great month for me... THANK YOU!

and tomorrow its a new month and a

and I can't wait to see what the new theme is
 and say hello to who ever is hosting this time.
Thanks for stopping by,
I hope you have a great day.

  12. Haha, two bottles getting together. I think the Grunge bottle is far more elegant than the Elegant bottle but please don't tell the Elegant Bottle I said that. Maybe they got their labels mixed up when they were getting together?
    Have a nice little rest from viewing and commenting, you deserve it! It was a super theme.
