Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Hubble Bubble Toil and Trouble

And another bottle, can you guess I am loving this technique?
If you fancy having a go, check out Sir Skinners website
This time I used a Disaranno (sp?) bottle which has a lovely square sturdy top, so I decided it should be turned upside down.

Not sure where the magical/spell.witch thing came from as I started out thinking it would be more 'steampunk' as you can see from the picture of the back of the bottle.
Maybe it was because I like newts and tried my best to make one out of clay - his name is Tiny - Oh why? I hear you ask - Cos he is My Newt... geddit?? oh that joke makes me laugh everytime, made me belly laugh when I first heard it when I was about 8 and 40 years later it still causes me to chuckle

on the front I adhered an Altoid tin I had lying around
Which is home to six of the best witches

Witch one do you like best?? (oh dear I am on a roll now..)

Why won't a Witch wear a flat hat?

Cos there is no point in it


  1. Oh Brilliant Nicks I adore it, but you have the wrong name for your Newt! It should be Pi--ed! Get it? Empty bottle and a Newt!!!!!!!As pi--ed as a Newt!!! Hanging head in shame, sorry!
