Well, Melissa is gone and even though we still have a house full it seems so quiet around here. We ALL miss her and baby Avery (especially her little... okay, not so little high-pitched squeals ;).
Back to life I guess which is kind of a bummer for me but hey, fall is here and I LUUUVVV Fall.
Time to start sharing all of our crafts, wahooo! We were soooo busy and have a lot to share with you.
I thought I would start with my first attempt of glass etching.
I wanted to do a scalloped edge around this raised bowl. So, I followed this tutorial at Create Sudio. Well, I kind of followed it up until it said "dump a ton of the Armour Etching Cream on to your stencil" at which point I thought -This stuff costs $12.00 I'm not wasting it- so I laid out a thin layer of etching cream and lived to regret it.
After washing it off it looked terrible! Needless to say I had to do it again to try to even out the mess I made. In the end it turned out fine but next time I do this make no mistake, I will follow the directions instead of being cheap and lazy (oh, and she says you can reuse the etching cream so it is not so wasteful... so there you go).
ANyway, here is the result:Not perfect but hey, it was my first try. ;)
