Have I already mentioned that Pinterest is addicting? Man, it seriously is! I find myself pinterest-ing every.single.night. Once the little one starts to do her little snores, I'd take my mobile and put myself under the blanket and start browsing through the bazillion ideas one can find in the sweet addicting world of Pinterest. Yes, it could be possible that I am losing sleep because of too much Pinterest-ing.
Anyhoo... as I was browsing and pinning, I found this work of a really artsy man named Eric Barclay. One of his works is this:
Isn't this too adorable??? I tell you, the guy is full of creativity and talent!
And since this is about recycling (I've been very gung-ho about recycling but just couldn't find time) and by a very, very good chance, I have one empty Nescafe bottle lying around the house, I said I must try this!
And here is the result of my wannabee-artist work. I know, it's far (like oceans afar!) from Eric's work but hey, the colors I used are all I have at the time AND I swear, my hand wouldn't just stop from trembling while I was trying to paint the bottle. I don't really know what I was so nervous about. And that crackled effect near the whites... and what's going on with the white? Looks like I used a liquid paper. I tell you I did not. I used a super old white paint marker... but I guess it's already super old, that's why.
But I am still happy with the outcome. My striped cat turned out cute in its own unique style, yes? Maybe I'd get better on the next ones. Maybe I should also get nicer colors to use, yeah? I still have to think of what to store in it. For now, it holds small knick-knacks in the kitchen. But it should find a better purpose. Maybe nuts? Or Sugar perhaps? What would you use a bottle like this for?
