Martha Stewart Glass paints are so much fun to work with, this was my first time working with glass paints, it is such an easy medium to work with! I created versatile Framed Glass Art, that I displayed in three different ways!

Photo Frames, most of mine were 3.5 x 5 inches. Thrift stores are a great place to look!
Step 1: Prep your Frames
Step 2: Apply the Stencils
Silkscreen Stencils! This was my first time using a silkscreen stencil and they are fabulous, they are actually backed on a small screen, so they can achieve really fine details. Before you begin, make sure your glass is very clean. Cut out the silkscreen stencils you will be using, then plan out the design you want on each frame.
1-Remove backing from stencil and carefully place it on the frame. I applied the paint in a line and smoothed it out with a squeegee.
2- I used the Dauber (love this tool) to create an even soft textured look on each silkscreen stencil
3- Remove the silkscreen stencil while the paint is STILL WET! After that it is really easy to clean these stencils with warm water.
4- Secure the glass to the inside of your frame by placing hot glue in each of the corners on the back inside of the frame.
STEP 3: Decorate
To finish off the frames, I hot-glued ribbon to top of each frame, so they would be easy to hang!
I placed them on three wooden candle holders I had on hand. This would be a beautiful centerpiece or mantel decoration!
Finally wouldn't it be beautiful to have a Christmas tree full of different sizes and shapes of Snowflake framed art, I am seriously in love with these!
Thank you Plaid, Martha Stewart, and Blueprint Social for this wonderful opportunity! It is my goal this year to make most of my Christmas presents, and this will help!
