Halloween Decor: Potion Bottles

I pulled out the Halloween decor this week and added a few projects to my list. The first, was to make some mercury glass poison bottles.

I started with a few clear glass bottles and gave them several coats of Krylon Looking Glass paint. I used this tutorial of vinegar and water to distress the paint and give it that real mercury glass look. After it dried they got a clear coat to seal the paint, black painted corks, and vinyl decals cut from the silhouette.


 
 
Love the look of mercury glass, I'll have to paint a few more items for my regular decor!

Baby Carter!

Things have been quiet around here because the last month we've spent our time taking care of this guy and adjusting to our life as a family of three!



 

Carter Raymond Ortega was born August 10, 2012 at 2:56 a.m. after only 2.5 hours of labor we barely made it to the hospital!
He was 12 days early and weighed in at 7 pounds 8 ounces and 20 1/4 inches long.

Needless to say we are completely in love! 

Projects are starting up, I'll get back to posting soon!
