Fun with empty Cola bottles

Welcome to another episode of Pick up Trash! Make Art!

I love the bright colors of the Coca Cola bottle, especially in contrast to the dark brown cola color.  In this case the bottle was empty and crushed, but I added the dark brown color in digital for one of my mandalas.

This was a fun set of mandalas to make.  I love the idea of starting with such a common iconic image and potraying it in a new light.

A little more digital fun and the cola bottle becomes an abstract flower.  I gave it two more flavors as well, grape and orange.
