inspiration angels & lilacs

Good Monday morning, yep, another
Monday has rolled around, seems like
they come awfully fast these days. I guess it's just getting closer to warm weather...ya think, I'm beginning to wonder. Smiley from

Today I thought I would share these Inspiration Angel bottles I made for my friends Lisa & Lana, I made these about this time last year. They are supposed to give you inspiration when you have a creative block.

The inside of the bottles are filled with game pieces, bits of ribbon, beads, Prima flowers, glitter, pipe cleaners, buttons and other stuff I can't remember, LOL! The bottles are diffuser bottles I had with cork tops. You could use any bottles though, just make sure the opening at the top is big enough so you can put your goodies inside. I cut an oval out of a chipboard coaster and covered it with paper from the Radiant Paper Pad from Crafty Secrets. I distressed the edges with a sanding block and glued them to the bottles with E 6000. I printed and cut out the pictures, stamped the crowns and wings from the Altered Art and Cherubs stamp sets, cut them out, added glitter and adhered them. I printed out Inspiration Angel on the computer and cut out the tags.
I put vintage clip earrings on the corks.

I wound the red thread on the tiny wooden spool.

I rub my inspiration bottle every so often and it truly works! And almost instantly! I am filled with good creative juices and ready to create! I enjoy my bottle so much Piris! You have a very special talent! I would what would happen if I rubbed LZ's bottle? Would I get inspiration or would she? LOL!
