Brick Bottle

Brick Bottle

I love seeing all of the inspiration around me. And my good friend Tracy Weinzapfel recently did a mixed media brick wall canvas. I tried the technique and lets just say, it’s effect was not quiet the same. But I worked with it and made it my own.


My actually canvas is a Sake bottle from our Chrimstmas themed dinner. I painted a layer or two of gesso just to colver up the matte gray glass. After that i used Creative Embellsishemtns Brick Stencil and some sand paste to build up the bricks. I acutally used the stencil multiple times for the different layers and colours.

Tracy’s Video for DecoArt can be found in the link.

DecoArt Media Mixed Media Brick Wall Background


I am loving the rust technique and there are so many diffenet techniques avaialble. I decieded to rust the wings  from Creative Embellsishemtn and the flaming heart from Relics & Artifacts®


I used a variety of reds, golds and and even continued the brick pattern on the underlying paint brush and the window with in the relic. to keep with the paint brush theme. I even added a minuture brush in the window.


I used multiple trinkets, costume jewlery and findings from around the house to build up the background. I also snuck in some CE Keys and did a ton of dry brushing. Thank you for stoppping by today and I hope you enjoyed this altered art.
