Glass Painting!

Well finally I managed to get some bits done - after managing to split a new 20l bag of cat litter!!! All over the kitchen floor - the poor cats wondered what the hell had gotten into me! The front garden has also been tidied a little, although there is still more to do in out.

Once I finished the boring jobs I decided to revamp my fireplace - in theme with a few challenges of course :). The fireplace is quite an old fashioned design and has lovely glass fronted (leaded) doors on each side. I found some diamond shaped bird scene peel offs which were just the right size to fit inside one of the diamonds on the doors, so I decided to give it a go!

I used a variety of glass paints, Anita's Aqua glass paints and Gallery Glass  This was very enjoyable as I haven't played with them for a while as they have been hiding in the utility room! This is being entered for - Love to create anything goes - Crafting by designs things with wings - Craftycardmakers Winter anything but a card - SimplyCreateToo shop in your stash

Christmas was the theme for the card that I made today - I have determined to make one Christmas orientated project each month at least! I used 'First Noel' backing paper, a general gold ribbon, Anita's peel off's angel and poinsettia. The poinsettia was stuck to a die-cut circle and coloured using Letraset Aqua markers.
