Quote of the day:
No matter how many times you may spray paint, change wheels , clean , or customize a car to look different . It will always be the same. Same goes for people. Our appearances , actions and age may change .. But we will always be the same

Well what a day it has been already! Wait, it’s only 8:39 in the morning. Pfft. Does that ever happen to you? You wake up early and you have done more in the wee hours of the morning than a FULL day’s work. I actually love mornings like that because it makes for a great afternoon nap, hehe.

I couldn’t wait to show you this post because it was so much fun to make it. I love to spray paint EVERYTHING in my life. Depending in my “phase” I am going through. This is a little different than your normal spray painting. It’s “glass spray painting”. When I was sent this from Martha Stewart Crafts I was like… ERR MY GERRDDD, really! Just like your normal spray painting, it can leak and leave spots… only if you don’t practice before. It only took me about a minute before I figured out the pressure and how much comes out in one spray. I have not tried to OMBRE anything yet but I will, don’t cha worry.
Let’s get started!

If you are painting on glass it’s important to use a gloss, metallic, or pearl paint. It works the best. Most of the other ingredients you may have floating around your house. Let’s get it started, y’all.

The first thing you will do is clean off your glass with alcohol and let it air dry. This will get off any oil residue that may be on the glass. Once it is completely dry stick your adhesive labels where you want them.

When you get your kit it will come with a few things. The first thing you will need to do is take the clear plastic tube and connect it to the bottom of the spray can. I put a picture above so you can visually see what I mean. Next we will mix our paint in the container. Notice on the back of the gloss spray medium it says to mix 1 part medium to 1 part gloss, metallic, or pearl paint. They have lines on the container so you can measure correctly. Lightly swirl the paint and medium (BEFORE) you attach but do NOT shake. You don’t want to create bubbles inside.

You will now just screw the container onto the spray can. The most IMPORTANT thing ever is to line up the  red nozzle with the little opening at the bottom of the can. If this is not lined up it will not spray.

Make sure you are in a well ventilated spot before you start spraying. You want to add a light coat and let it dry, repeat until you are happy with the look. I coated mine as much as I could. I didn’t want to see through the vase at all.  If you notice on my stencils they have the image that is cut out and around it it looks like a rectangle. The reason why I spray painted it this way is because I knew I wanted to see the water in some spots so I created a blocked print with the stencil.

When I was done I added water, then a little food coloring ( to spice up my water) then added some pretty tulips. You can add any color you want which makes it super fun. If you stick this baby in a window you will just stare at it for about 16 minutes strait. Fa REEL!
Remember these tulips?

Well, I hope you enjoy this tutorial as much as I did! Huge glitterbomb hugs from me to you!

GOOD MORNING JADERBUGS!!!

I hope you love this craft because I am ADDICTED to it. I want to “paint” everything clear that I see.  Transform everyday vessels into elegant vases by coating their interiors with glass enamel. Any container will do — buy up old bottles at a flea market or try kitchen cast-offs, such as jam jars. We used white enamel, which yielded different shades of green depending on the tint of the glass.

I got all of my products at Michaels arts and crafts store. If you don’t have one locally you can go to Delta Creative and order some! 

Wash the bottle inside and out with soapy water; let dry. Pour in a small amount of the paint’s surface conditioner, which primes the glass for the enamel. Swirl to coat fully, then pour out excess.

Stand bottle upright, and dry for an hour. Pour in enough enamel to easily coat the inside. Swirl, and return excess to container for reuse.

This is so pretty! Make sure you coat it good so you don’t have streaks.

I mixed a little white and blue to get this effect! So pretty!!

All I did was pout the 2 colors in the container and started painting the inside.

I dressed them up with my homemade pom poms! Did you see my post on how to make them? Check it out HERE!

See how fun these suckers look! I hope you have fun making some! OH! Check out my video I made on “How to Paint on Glass”… I did this a while ago so forgive if it’s cheezy. haha
