I have painted too 🎨🍾

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

Of course I have painted winebottles during the Easter too 🎨. Actually I have painted at some canvas as well, but they are not finish yet.

Some years ago I painted a painting on canvas, more and less like a almond tree in bloom 🌸. My daughter’s best friend in Norway “fall in love” with the painting already before it was finished 😊. So, of course, when I was finish with the painting I sent it to Norway to her 😊.

Unfortunately I haven’t any photos from the painting when it was finished, but I still remember “the touch” this painting had, and hopefully still have 🥰. A soft touch of the Spring, and a touch of happiness and joy. I did like the painting very much myself 😊.

“The Almond Tree in Bloom”- under process 🎨

And I wanted to try to “catch” the more and less similar “touch” on a painted winebottle 🎨. So then I did try 😊.

The painted winebottle it’s not quite similar the canvas- but still I need to say I liked it 😊

At the canvas there’s the moon and at the winebottle is the sun. But still its almond flowers, – because it’s this time of the year the beautiful almond flowers are in bloom 🌸.

I’m going to sent this bottle to Norway too, to my daughter’s best friend up there in the north 💛. I’m not sure when it will be posted, and maybe my daughter can bring it to her as well when she is travelling to Norway for holiday next month? Anyway,- a solution will drop by in one or another way 😊.

Here you can see the whole motive all around the winebottle 😊

It was not the easiest bottle I have painted, but it was very fun to do. So maybe there will come some more bottles like this?😊

Some few details in the painted winebottle 🎨

And of course there’s lights in this bottle too. But it looks so much better in “the real life” then with my to not good mobile camera 😊.

The winebottle with lights inside – so much better “live” then on this photos 💡

I need to admit that I like this bottle as well as to paint in a bit different way and direction then many of my others glassbottles I have painted and created 🎨. That’s one of many fun things with create and paint, – I can play with colours and illustrations as I want. Create my own image and imagenation the way I want and suits me “there and then”. And there’s no “correct or wrong” when it comes to art. That feels good too 😊.

I hope my daughter’s friend will have the same joy with this bottle as I had when I painted it, but if course still a joy in two different ways 😊💛.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you 🧡 Thsnk you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

Look at this colorful bottle with a touch of the Spring of almond flowers in bloom 🌸

The Spring time is the time when the beautiful almond flowers are blooming. And I have try to “catch” the soft Spring- feelings the almond flowers gives with their soft colours on a winebottle 🌸.

The process of making the glass bottles ready for painting 🎨🧽

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

Like some of you know I got a bit of winebottles from Natasja, but before I can start working with them and start painting, the bottles need to be clean for everything. No wine rest in the bottom, no paper, no metal. They need be totally empty and clean, and that’s a tiny bit of a process too, but a process I don’t mind to do, because I know after I’m finish I can have so much fun painting on the winebottles 🎨.

I just want to share and show you how I do this. It’s not difficult, but it can take a bit of time now and then. Special because of the different wine etiquette on the bottle, where the name and information about the wine stand. This one can sometimes take a bit time to remove. It depends a bit what kind of paper and glue the wine fabric has used.

The winebottles after the “cleaning process “- upside down so I’m sure all the water dryers out.

I need to be sure all the water is gone, and the bottles are dry inside before I can start painting. If not some not to nice “suprices” can “show up” after a while, like bad smell or even something strange growing up 😊. So I let the bottles stand upside down for a while before I start working with them.

But before I’m “there” I need to was and clean a bit 🧽😊.

Bottles ready to be clean up and remove “all and everything”. Bottles in water so the etiquette it’s easier to remove, and they also will be clean inside. And the first “dry- process before I put them in my basket 🧺.

In a way I have my own “winebottle ” process, but not for the wine, for the painting 🎨.

When the bottle is dry, totally dry, the painting can starts. And then the painting needs to dry a bit before I can continue, and after a while I have some finish painted glassbottles as you can see on the last, long photo 🎨.

My cleaning process to make the glassbottles ready for painting is probably not the most “exciting” process, at least not to read about 😅. But for me this is a part of the painting process so I can create and be creative. And already under the “cleaning process” I get different imagination about different illustrations I want to paint on the different glassbottles 😊.

So my scratch book is in general not to fare away from me either, so I can scratch down some of my ideas- in case I forget them. In general I actually don’t do that. Mostly I do the “scratching” because I need to “try out” my imagination and illusion and see how I can create this on a painting or a glassbottle. But most of the times the illustrations just “are there” in my mind when I’m starting to paint 😊.

My scratch book and just some very few of my scratches/ ideas that’s drops into my mind when I’m not painting 😊🎨.

Maybe not the most interesting and exciting text you have reading by me, but for me it felt a bit important to share with you a part of the process for the glassbottles I’m painting on, because I actually can’t paint at them “like they are”,- or I could probably do that too, but the result has become a bit different then. And I always spray paint the bottles at the end when they are finished painting.  I use oil paint so it lasts a long time, but the glass bottles get a finer gloss, and can withstand a little more when I finish with transparent and clear spray paint.

So now you know a bit of my “glassbottles- process” before they are finish and ready for “use” or given away as a present to someone I care about 🎁🧡.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

Glassbottles ready to be created with colours and illustrations, imagine and a tiny “part of me” too 😊

I can’t start painting on a glassbottle before I have cleaned it up a bit 🧽. And the glassbottles needs to stand a bit “upside down” too before I can start painting. I have my own tiny “process” to “make” them ready 😊. I’m, in my own way, enjoying this “get ready for painting” process, even it’s a bit of a boring process too 😅 🎨.

A fairytale blue flowers forest 🧚‍♀️🌲🧚‍♂️

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

I’m finish with another glassbottle and this one is actually not painted to any special or specific one. No friends or no family 😊. I just painted it in between my other glassbottles when I was waiting for the paint to dry a bit 🎨.

I have been thinking a bit about maybe paint some glassbottles for sale too, not just to give away as present to people I care about 😊. And even give the different bottles a name or title?

I have remember to number most of the different glassbottles I have painted and give away. In case I became “rich and famous” on day 🤭. I have even a book I’m writing down the numbers and the name to whom has got the different bottles from me 😊. But I need to admit I was a bit lazy with this “kind of work” and numbers at my first glassbottles because I didn’t knew I was going to enjoy the painting at glassbottles as much as I do. And I had no imagination that I should been painting so many as I have done so fare 😊.

I have also been thinking about create a bit more different and a bit more creative photos to my glassbottles then I have done so fare. At the same time as I like to try to show how the bottles looks like in the light and also with lights inside 💡. The colours and design, the motives and illustrations. But it could be a bit boring to just use the white background all the time, at the same time as the white background gives in general the more “correct” colours. But today I did try out a bit other background with the glass bottle I’m calling “A fairytale blue flowers forest” 🧚‍♂️. It looks good, doesn’t it?

“A fairytale blue flowers forest”- size 25 cm high and 24 round 😊. Nr. LS AB 022

I think the name suits this winebottle perfectly 😊. In my imagination it looks like a fairytale blue flowers forest 🌲🥀. And I did really enjoy to paint it to 🎨.

Some few details from the winebottle 🎨

I like to try to paint different illustrations and images on my glassbottles as well as canvas. But often I’m “ending up” with flowers of any kind, or heart in different ways, settings , “shapes” and forms 🧡. I’m actually not sure why, and I’m actually not stressing to find any “why” either 😊. It is what it is,- and I have a great time when I’m painting 🎨. It’s relaxing and it makes my mind fly away, and it’s a kind of timeout for me too.

The winebottle around and around and around,- so you get a better imagination how it looks like 😊

Look how different at the same time “similar” the bottle is in different lights and “settings”. Pretty cool? 😊

The bottle with anx without sun, as well as with and without lights inside 💡

I actually really like my “A fairytale blue flowers forest”. It makes me smile and takes me to a nice and cozy fairytale where things are just relaxed and peaceful. What do you think? Does my winebottle looks like “A fairytale blue flowers forest” for you? Or does it create some other imaginations in your mind? 😊

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

“A fairytale blue flowers forest” in the dark evening and with lights inside- nice?😊

Then pink it is 🎨😊

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

It’s often during hard and difficult time and situations we really see, feel and experience who our real friends are. And during December 2020 I did see who really was my daughter’s friends. Not all of them, but some of the closest she has here in Spain. She have some great and close friends in Norway too. And also a couple more here in Spain, but there’s two young women that has been around my daughter a bit more then others during the lasts months 😊.

The circumstances my daughter was in during December is not something she has shared with “all and everyone”, but I was allowed to write about it from my point of view as a mammi during a situation like that. And she also went to some good friends of her here in Spain for some great and supporting conversations 💛.

Like I mention, there’s special two of her friends that’s has taken a bit extra good care for my daughter during the lasts months, and I wanted to share my gratefulness for being there for her during a not the easiest period in her life. So I have painted one bottle each to them, and in pink. Because both of her friends favourite colour is pink 🎨.

Two painted winebottles with a “touch” of pink 🎨

I like to give, give people I care about something that shows them how grateful I’m for having them in me and my children’s life in some or another way. To give I don’t necessarily mean give gifts. It can be serving a nice meal, or just let them feel very welcome in my home with some tasty snacks and good drinks and good conversations, or let them borrow my air if they need to talk, give a good hug, or some other kind of attention. But it can also be small gifts like a painting, a knitted scarf or a painted glassbottle. It’s depends a bit on the different situations and also the people I’m together with.

I like to share and show that I presage my friends and family. I’m not good enough to show how much I care about my family in Norway, but there’s some suprices for them all “under process” too 🥰.

And I really wanted to share this two young women, my daughter’s friends who my I presage the time they have spent together with my daughter the lasts months 🧡. Anc then it became too oil painted winebottles with a touch of pink colour 🎨.

The same painted winebottle with lights inside 🕯.

One of her friends have also been “babysitting” my daughter a couple of times during the last months 😅. Sounds probably a bit strange since my daughter is actually 20 year old 😊. But I had just started my own “travel” in my own life when my daughter moved back home in a hurry, and I just needed a tiny bit time alone during this time as well. A bit “adult- time”, a bit just “Laila- time”. Sounds maybe a bit selfish, but I think maybe someone who already has been through the “children- moving- out” process and actually did like their new adult time and the life on their own, know what I’m mean, without being a bad mammi 😊.

One of my daughter’s friend got also some knitted stuff like a hat, scarf and elf- sock. And her dog got a blanket and a scarf too 😊. As “Thank you” for “babysitting” my daughter 😊.

My daughter has no hard feelings for this “babysitting” situation 😊. We had talked about this, and we both needed a bit time a part from each too 😊. It’s just a bit fun to call it for “babysitting”, because I have actually asked for a tiny bit time “off” for being a mammi and time for just be me, the adult me where just my “needs” was in focus for a tiny bit while 😊. And a timeout from being a mammi create me also to a better mammi 😊. Even when the children are young adults 🧡.

The other winebottle without any lights inside 😊 This is to a young woman called Cecillie 🎨
The winebottle with lights inside 🕯. Not the best video, but better then nothing 😊.

I hope you too have some great people, family and friends in your life you know are there, will be there for you,- special during difficult times, as well as good times 🧡.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

Then it became two pink painted winebottles for two of my daughter’s close friends here in Spain 💛. Because I wanted to show them how much I presage the time they have use together with my daughter during a bit challenging time for her 💚.

Beautiful blue glass art to a very good friend 💙🎨

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

I’m finish with a blue glassbottle, a blue winebottle to be more correct. I got the winebottle filled up with a very nice and tasty white wine from a good friend of my. And we also did share the wine together with some great conversations 😊.

He is a very good friend and I wanted to give him something just to show how much I appreciate his friendship, and then if felt natural for me to paint and create on the winebottle we did share one evening some weeks ago. One of his favourite colours is also blue, so it felt natural to paint in different blue colours to him in a blue winebottle 🎨.

And to be honest,- I’m incredibly proud of this winebottle 🥰. It became so beautiful, in my eyes. In it’s own way it’s like “touched” by some magic 🥰. Hopefully I’m allowed to say that even it’s my own art 😊🎨.

This “creation” and the music remains me also so much about him. I like him so much, I really enjoying his company, friendship and in general his very good and happy mood, and the way he handles the life 😊.

I have some more “orders” on painted winebottles too, and I’m a bit surprised and very happy, and a bit proud too, to be honest, that people actually likes my painted winebottles and even what to have them in their home 🥰.

I’m getting better and better to paint on the bottles too. It’s still difficult and it’s stil takes a bit time to paint on a glassbottle. But when the results became like this I need to so honest and say I’m proud and happy 🥰.

The winebottle without any lights in

I have got some neon colours also now. A gift from my daughter 🥰. It was one of my followers that gave me that idea and inspiration to try to use and paint with neon colours on some glassbottles. So I’m trying to find out how to paint and create some lovely glassbottles with neon colours as well. Thank you so much for your idea #zoewiezoe 💛. And of course I’m going to share and show you all the finish results when I’m finish with my first neon coloured glassbottles.

At the moment I’m working on some other bottles. Like I mention,- I have got some “orders” on painted winebottles 😊. And I want to be finish with them first of all. At the moment it’s my friends and family that have “ordered” some painted winebottles, so it’s going to be gifts to them from me 🎁. A gift with a touch of magic, love, joy and happiness ,- I hope 🥰.

Here you can see some parts of this blue painted winebottle,- and yes,- my friend was very happy and grateful for this gift 💙. And then I’m happy too 🥰.
