Journey back in time

Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Bleeding Art!  This month is anything goes so I decided to take a journey back in time!

This upcycled bottle takes me back to the 1800s. Corsets and lace. Old paper. A little vintage, a little glamorized steampunk. And the corset is laced with string...

A beautiful gemstone, metal studs and a cog...

It has a grungy feel to it, like it's been sitting in the attic for awhile. Soiled lace and a chain attached with a stud to an old-fashioned mannequin. Even a little apothecary bottle and metal wire. And that stopper! An antiqued leather look with an antique jewel on top. 

A trip back in time to a lady's boudoir!  So now it's your turn to enter the challenge! Will you go back in time - or make something for this era? Anything goes!

  6. This really is a thing of beauty Cathy, reminds me of my college days when studying Textiles and a project I had to recreate a boned corset. Love your attention to detail, laced corset and jewelled bottle stopper. Amazing piece of bottle art. Thank you for sharing.
