Wishing bottle.. And Mixed media Monday.

For full instructions got to Happy Daze Online classes HERE although for some reason it says to use black stazon or archival ink.. i used brown on mine...

Mixed media Monday
has "Embellish it" as a theme tomorrow... Well LOL.... fits me to a tea and this bottle, so I am entering it. Not only did I embellish physically.. but especially for the Dear Joanne Wardle... I am embellishing the story of the bottle too. (apologies in advance if I dont coment on your mixed media monday entries as I am heading off on holiday tomorrow.)

This is a rare bottle and similar to the message in a bottle philosophy. Simply write down your wish on parchment or the more modern "paper", roll it up and pop it in to the bottle... its advised to add a little something for the little people who will retrieve the bottle and decide if they should grant your wish. I have heard they are partial to humbugs. leave it near an open window or on the doorstep over night. All there is to do now is wait.
