Now for my project.
I call this my, "Bottle of Cheer". I started with an empty Triple Sec bottle and painted it. The first step to painting glass is to give it a good coat of Paint Adhesion Medium first. I have not been able to find this item locally, I got it from Plum Purdy.  It is listed under the "sealers and mediums" link. The best way to apply it is with a sponge.


I also used a sponge to apply the paint in a variety of different colors.
The stamped, "centers" of my flowers are from Unity Stamp Co., their, "feel better soon" kit. After stamping my sentiments I cut them out using my Spellbinder's circle and scalloped circle dies. I also cut the other layers of the, "flowers" using bigger scalloped circle dies. The papers are Japanese craft papers that my kids brought me. I used wooden skewers painted green for my, "stems". Added a die cut butterfly and a bow to finish it off.

 Up next is Ashley.

Here's our line up in case you get lost:
