Project Pinterest - Painting on Glass

I can't help myself.  I keep pinning and pinning.  I have a couple of projects going right now based on pins.  Here's the one I want to show you this week.  I really liked the confetti look on the glasses.  I thought I could do that with whatever glass object I have.  I was lucky enough to find a sweet little vase at the thrift store.

Here's my sweet little vase.  I used the eraser end of a pencil and used acrylic paints.  Since I did it on the outside I can put water in the vase.  I haven't sealed the outside yet so will have to be careful.
Tulips in honor of my bird, Tulip

Kay, your vase is delightful . . . it is so pretty! It just goes to show that you do not have to spend a lot of money to get a designer look.
Great job!

Thank you for the gracious comment you left on my blog. You are very right about blogging being about meeting people. I have met so many lovely people. People who are not only creative but also warm and caring.
I'm glad that you like my cowboy boots . . . you live in New Mexico, I'm sure you have a pair, too. How do you hike around the desert taking photos, without them?
Wednesday is going to be a very busy day for me. I will be out at our county fair most of the day, but I am excited to see what you have planned for your post. Have a very nice day, Your blogging sister, Connie :)

I love your vase idea and especially like the way you have honoured your feathered friend Tulip. They are such characters I do so understand the hole she has left in your life. Pintrest is addictive too and I am glad to see a project come out of it, not just hours in front of a screen...
