This project is NOT I repeat NOT complete..
I'm stuck at a stand still on it..
It didn't end up going the direction I was aiming for so for now it's been set aside..
So eventually (before March is over) I will finish it so you will just have to come back and
see the final results..hopefully it's something to brag about ha ha!
This started out as a ugly gold and brown picture frame..Hello black spray paint!
For the shamrock I cut 3 hearts out of an old cracker box, then I glue the hearts onto a 50 year old dictionary page and recut the hearts out again..
Then....I took a COFFEE FILTER (I really should do a tutorial on this) and folder the filter up into a triangle and rubbed green and brown ink ALL OVER IT..then I ran it under water to let it all run together then I set it in front of the heater to dry (didnt take long at all)
Then I got out my handy dandy decoupage (Love that stuff!) and deco'd the filter hearts (I traced them using the next smallest heart cookie cutter) ..the results are awesome and kind a cloudy transparent look. Click on the pic to see it in better detail.
I used glue dots to attach it to the glass.
I also colored the clear glass a green color. You REALLY MUST try this!!
You take modge podge and put a few drops of food coloring in it and mix it all up, then you paint it on your glass. It will look like a creamy color but when it dries it's clear. It's so awesome and the possibilities are endless!! I wish I remembered where I seen the tutorial on how to do this!
I will make one next time I do this technique..
So here is what I got so far...was going for a vintage look but don't feel Im on the right path..we shall see how it turns out in the end...stay tuned!
