ColourArte Monthly Challenge #1

Welcome everyone 
Here is my submission to
ColourArte's Monthly Challenge #1

ALTERED TEA BOTTLE
 I applied white gesso on an empty tea bottle
With matte medium gel I applied a piece of mesh net and sea shells
I then again applied more white gesso
I used  Colour Arte Silks 
Sapphire on Ice, Sunflower and Plumeria 
and blended some gesso as well to give it more dimension.and highlights
For my first layered little ship die I used Colour Arte Twinkling H2Os 
Pearl Blue, Pearl red and Pearl gold
and dabbed a little the same silks on the
 second layer of my ship and added dimension with form squares
   
I applied coarse texture gel. 
It has a grain sand like texture which was perfect for this project
 
I embedded loose pearls, sequins and sea bead which the medium was still wet
