The Perfume of Paris

Thought I'd share another one of my collections in my studio today...it's tiny perfume bottles. I pick them up at flea markets and tag sales, they were my inspiration for my jeweled bottle today for Retro Cafe Art. I have several collections including rocks and sea shells, which I have shown you before. I don't what makes some of us collect different things. Do you have a favorite collection?

So, to make this little square perfume bottle, I covered each side with some collage paper...Paris themed of course. I painted and covered with glitter the Paris  Retro Cafe Art cut outs . I used the Eiffel tower, Fleur de Iis and Arc d'Triomphe, and the  little scalloped heart. I over stamped these with words and images of Paris. Next came the water color paint, pearls, rhinestones and Ranger Stickles accents. The topper is a jeweled button and some thin gold ribbon from my stash. It will join my perfume bottle collection in my studio.

Hope you will  recall the scent of a wonderful memory this week
take care, gerri
