I attended a glass worshop thru meetup.com called Texas Art Glass. I have so much fun at this class that is held once a month on Sundays...yep I did this last Sunday but didn't finish it up until today....some may think it gaudy, some may think it to much......but for my eye this turned out to be an awesome picture frame for my little dog Lucky. Picture can be changed out also.
I started with an artist canvas 11x 14 that we covered with gesso so the things applied would adhere well ..then the fun part... we just started gluing all the fun things on...first the back layer I did papers and laces. adhered with liquitex matte medium..this made the toned down effect of the papers....next layer I did more laces and beads...top layer the big bulky stuff glued on with E6000 glue ...then finally the little picture applied with garter clips I bought while visiting my friend in Wichita, KS at a shop down town called Ms Oleary's. If you go here Joni has the best altered items ever way in the back so make sure you venture thru ..I am kinda glad this place is far, far away..or my pocket book would be empty for real..
So take your try at this fun art form and see where you creativeness takes you..the results are endless.
