Butterfly Jar

After adding the glitter to this jar, it still needed something more. I had several ideas running through my head, but nothing really panned out. Then, I found this butterfly. I enjoy the way it sort of peeks through the glass from the other side.

Pixie and Fairy Dust - Take 2

I previously posted the jar below, with some slight variations (view here). After viewing opinions for other crafters, I came up with this final product.


Pixie and Fairy Dust

I glittered the jar, then had trouble figuring out what should be added. I didn't really have a plan for the jar. I just wanted to try the glitter technique, which is very easy.

I found the $2 jar at HL on sale for 50% off. That's right, I got it for just $1. I decided that was a low enough cost to practice. I haven't decided yet whether I should use the lid with the rhinestones, or without. What do you think?

The little pixie, relaxing on the glitter, is from Silhouette Design Store.

My Dog Bailey!

This afternoon I decided to play with photo tracing with my Silhouette. This is the process of using a picture and creating a traced image which can then, using the Silhouette, be printed on fabric or paper, or cut on vinyl.
Any time I want to try a new Silhouette technique, I go to Silhouette School. She has a great blog and some e-books, to help with various techniques. 
Any way, below is a picture I had of my dog, Bailey, and the traced image of the picture!
