I did this with the stained glass plate we've placed in the bathroom. When I originally took photos of this, I used my favorite white background because I wanted to see all the details closely. But placing things where they might "live" when they leave me is a good idea too. I like this photo a lot because it shows a bit of the tree that is so big and strong. "My" tree!

I decided to use the bails after I tried to put a small screw eye at the top of one of them but it split the MDF immediately. Something I sort of anticipated so I wasn't surprised, just disappointed. I saw these being hung on a wall differently than how I am doing them now.
They are all drying and waiting for the next step which I'll do tomorrow. I'll put string and/or ribbon and maybe jute for hanging, take photos of each one and start editing photos. Once edited they'll get listed! Yay!
I also put bails on the back of "Possessed" today and covered the grout and sides with the same sealant I mentioned above. I took it outside this morning to take some photos and decided on the way I wanted it to hang.
This should be listed in a few days once I get some more photos of it. What a ride this one took me on! I'm ready for the next.
I worked on a large cross yesterday using scrap glass. I love making these kinds of mosaics. I have the next one waiting to do something with glass in greens and blues next. This is #7!
I'm slowing up in getting all 25 crosses completed now that I know I'm not attending a local church's craft fair in November as I had planned. Life got in the way and as it always does, family comes first. I would like to reach the goal, which was to get all 25 crafted either in a mosaic or painted by November. I now have the small ones to work on too. I've got 40 of those. 20 are done with dots, 3 have a mosaic on them. They might not all get completed by November but it would be kinda awesome if they did!
Time to get to work!
