Fall leaves ice pail

There was a time when I thought glass painting was only for windows !  I’ve come a long way since and there’s no end to visualizing images on glass. The biggest "wow" factor for me was when sunlight shone through the glass of my first ever attempt at faux stained glass painting.  I now see painting on a simple object as creating something pretty, out of nothing.  

There was this plain ice pail I bought that I just had to work on.  I love drawing twigs and leaves.
It doesn't show on the photos but the leaves are edged with gold and copper glass liner.

It looks really good when filled with ice cubes that lend a frosty background to the fall leaves.
I later gifted it to the younger of my two brothers.

And now I must catch up with my favourite blogs - can’t wait to see all the projects that my blogger friends came up with.

Diwali 2013 Notepads

Hello !

I’ve been away for far too long.  I hope everything is good in your part of our globe.

Last week was a happily busy one for me.  Here are the notepads I’ve just made as Diwali gifts. The Festival of Lights will be celebrated this year in the first week of November.

First order ready to be sent out.

Bye and happy crafting.
