"YAY! i'm so excited to be back to work"-said nobody ever!!!
what i'd like to do is a bit more of the magnificence you see below! i love how these turned out.
i had read that you can take a gold sharpie and write on glass and saw it done with a doilie. well, i have tons of doilies and have wanted to give it a try.
enter: dollar tree glass whatever's (i think some actually are votives, some may be glasses, i dunno.)
they turned out really great however, silver sharpies don't give that same gilded look like gold does (well, obviously) but i only had a gold metallic writer so i used that instead.
i think it turned out beautifully. much better than i think an actual gold sharpie would.
oh, side note, did you know that at jo-ann's fabrics they have to put a lock on their sharpies?
they said kids steal them all the time?? any color. they all get stolen. i was like, huh? it's a 3 dolla pen!!!
oh, and when the guy unlocked the pen he couldn't give it to me to put in my basket-it had to be taken up to the register to wait for me when i checked out.
i felt like a criminal! and not the cool michael jackson smooth type criminal either. there was definitely NO moon walking involved.
i swear. well, later in the day there was a bit but not in jo-ann's and not sharpie involved.
i mean, can we not steal sharpies kids??
okay, so back to the magnificence!
here is what ya need:
-adhesive spray (lightly spray this-enough so edges get the sticky love but not so much where it seeps-it'll be a problem)
-plain glass anything
-gold metallic marker (i'm tellin ya, skip the sharpie, use the metallic gold pens)
|cut your doilie to however you want-spray the back and affix|
|start to fill in the openings with your pen|
|should look like this- don't color over the entire thing in case the gold pen seeps under the doilie|
|the square one in front is my littlest littles silver sharpie one- and the 2 in the back were done with the gold writer.|
|looks gilded and was so easy!|
so, i pretty much have been looking at everything glass wondering if i could draw on it (while moon-walking) and not be in trouble...i have realized 2 things.
i will still get in trouble at my age for writing on glass and i'm still a day-umm good moon-walker at my age.
yes, i'm tootin' those horns this aloha friday! yeah!!!!
