Altered Glass Vials

Happy Easter everyone! It is an absolutely gorgeous day here, hope the weather is good where you are too. Despite the weather being glorious, I took the opportunity yesterday to do some proper crafting as my little 'helper' was at a friend's house :)

This is something entirely different for me but I was inspired by a couple of challenges and wanted to have a go. I've had a go at altering some small glass vials. I used a PaperArtsy Lin Brown quote stamp as my inspiration and decided to do a bottle for each season, based on the words.

Here is my interpretation:

 I filled this bottle with a mix of UTEE and blue sparkle WOW embossing powder. I covered the outside with snowflake fresco paint with my finger.

This one has purple stickles inside and lots of springy wire.

This bottle is filled with acrylic paint.

And this one is filled with silver stickles, red stazon and red paint.

I have an idea that I might turn them into a bigger project but for now I'm off to enjoy the sunshine!

I would like to enter this into the Arty Inklings challenge and the Craft Stamper Challenge.
