Glass Vase

Saw this fun project on Splitcoast a couple of weeks ago, and I just had to try it. It was done using a Ball Jar and looked so fabulous! I had a small glass vase that I decided to try it out on. Just dab on Adirondak alcohol inks in your favorite colors (I used just 2 colors).
On the Splitcoast instructions, they brushed on Glossy Accents and I was about to do that, when a light bulb went off in my head and I decided to spray on some Goosebumps! Well - it turned out okay - but I think I'll try the brushing on of the Glossy Accents the next time LOL. You really can't control the spray well enough. At any rate, I sprinkled Sparkle N Sprinkle Sparkling Snow glitter over the wet Goosebumps and then brushed a little of it off.
I kind of fudged some purple felt flowers from a Spellbinders die cut and then found the Sizzix die that I knew I had somewhere but couldn't find. I think that means that my "rubber room" needs some rearranging. I sprayed a little Goosebumps spray on those and added glitter and hot glued a half pearl in the center. Tied some green seam binding over some lace - hot glued the flowers on and added a little tag from Stampin' Up. I think it turned out pretty well and was quite easy to do.


  1. So cool Brenda - You have got to experiment with that light bulb - I love it!! I have so many vases that I just have to try this with - maybe next month!! But for now - TFS!

  2. This is beautiful! Love the two colors swirled together! Would make a great personalized gift!

  3. Brenda, Since this is done in my favorite color, purple, you much intend to send it to me, right? Gorgeous!! Fabulous flowers!

  4. That touch of lace really makes a difference! If you're not going to put water in it, you can always do the glitter thing on the inside LOL to go with the AIs! It's a lovely vase - and really looks great with the felt flowers! Thanks for sharing your experiment! So where will this vase be going?

  5. Brenda, this is awesome. Love your choice of color - of course it's my favorite as well.

  6. Donna & Connie - perhaps to the highest bidder LOL


I love hearing your comments - thank you!
