Glass Block Art
The glass block with the berries on top is really pretty. I made it for a friend but can't decide if I should give it away now or wait till close to Christmas. I put a rub on onto the front (from Michaels), put silver ribbon on the edges and finished it off with berries. It does not have a hole drilled into it for lights.
For the light with Hanna from Hanna Stamps!, there is a hole drilled into the block, which I used to insert the lights into. The hole size is only 1/2 inch, but the lights did go inside. I used a 35 count string from Lowe's. I stamped hanna on vellum and colored her with Copics. I used an overlay of double sided tape in about a 5x5 size for my 6x6 inch block. Then I added small microbeads to the front.
I plan to add another Hanna image to the back as soon as I get the next set, "Tis the Season" I can't decide which way I like the blocks better, beaded or plain. My son wanted me to bead the birds, but I really like them plain. I think if you plan to microbead them, they look better with lights inside.
I am somewhat of a plain and simple gal. My son, however, has grand plans to create his own night light with a set of penguin rub ons and beads. He is always crafting, too, so, i'll post wht he creates as well.
