Martini Glass Candy Dish

Just wanted to share a fun creation I made. I took an old dictionary and mod podged onto the glass. It didn't look very good so I took sheet music and tried again. Second time around looked good. I pained the base and put trim on the rim of the glass. Now you have a fun candy dish. I'm going to make some for Halloween. Yes, I'm already thinking about Halloween projects. LOL

Trying a new technique

I was looking though some of my books the other day. One project jumped out at me so I thought I would try it. It was fun because it involved ink, paint, stamping and prima flowers. I started out inking the paper then painted a thin coat of white paint over the ink. Drying time was quick because I wiped all the excess paint off. Then I stamped on the paint layer, distressed the paper edge, added buttons and a prima flower. Felt like I was in kindergarden again playing with finger paints. Very fun!

Another picture of the crown

What was I thinking...I forgot the bling

I added beaded to the crown and thought it really finished it off. More pictures of the finished project. I sure hope my Gibbs sister likes it!

Girly Girl Crown

This was my first attempt at making a crown. I'm in a craft swap and thought a crown would be perfect for one of the items. Thought it turned out kinda of cute.
