Inspired by Alcohol

Inspired by Alcohol

Many scrapbookers out there love to unwind at the end of the day with a glass of wine or a beer and their scrapbook supplies. I’ve been known to do that myself on occasion. Somehow that seems to make a relaxing hobby even more relaxing.

But that’s not what “Inspired by Alcohol” means.

Have you ever really looked closely at a bottle of alcohol? Have you ever noticed the design and said to yourself, “that will make a great page?” Maybe it’s just me.

My husband likes to have a drink after work every night, and he likes variety. Sometimes he’s drinking a gin and tonic, sometimes it’s his current favorite beer, sometimes it’s something else. As a result, theres always an interesting bottle in the house.

Take, for example, this bottle of Vesica vodka:

It’s an odd shaped bottle, with its fused two cylinder shape, but what really appeals to me is the label design. If you can’t tell from the picture, it has a circular flowere-like pattern that’s very faint, behind the brand name. Above the brand name is another circular flower-like element that calls to mind both the shape of the bottle, and the background image.

Personally, I think it’s lovely, and definitely scrap-liftable.

What would you make based on this?

I’ve made a few layouts for my next scrapbooking book on how to master sketches based on this bottle. (More about that later!) My favorite has to be this one:


So, the next time you have a drink, take a look at the bottle. Maybe you’ll find it scrap-worthy. I’ll be doing the same, and sharing the results. And maybe even joining my husband in a glass or two.
