Be that as it may, the vase is coming along nicely. I have only a few more flowers to fill in.
I was undecided about filling in the background until this morning. I know what glass I want to use to fill in around the flowers and am pleased that I made the decision. Although I do love leaving the flowers as they are with grout (of course) for this vase, the glass I picked to go around it will be perfect and finish it beautifully.
There are many ways to do these flowers. Typically, I use glass and mirror but I'm looking at my dish shards with a different eye these days and I do believe I'll have to try making a flower power mosaic using broken dishes, stained glass and mirror. That should be fun!
I listed 2 new things this morning on Etsy. Another pendant and another painted bottle. The bottle's name is "Stormbringer". It was made when we were having a lot of storms in our area and it is a song title by Deep Purple, a group popular in the 1960's and responsible for much of my enjoyment when I am at the crafts table now.
