Playing with PEBEO... Swoon, and Friends with Flair!

I am Baaaack! Smile... Sorry it's been so long between posts, but I have been REALLY sick from a bug I picked up at my 8-year old grandson's hockey tournament on March 23rd...
Grandson#2 and his Hockey Medal
 and then I was on a plane winging my way to Texas for a week-long visit and week of ART, eating, talking and BEACH with a my good friend Lisa (who I met at Christy Tomlinson's She Matter's Art Retreat last April)
Christy Tomlinson's SHE MATTERS Art Retreat, April-2014
and although I arrived home this past Tuesday, it took TWO DAYS to unpack all the stuff I brought back with me!  (Note: Hobby Lobby should show a big bump in revenue this month ... GRIN.)
Me & Lisa - Apres Beach IceCream Cones...Swoon!

 So ANYWAY... One of the new-to-me products I stumbled upon and bought are these awesome glass paints and dimensional glazes from a french company PEBEO... 
and they are one of the reasons I had to go back to Hobby Lobby THREE times and why I needed to purchase a FOURTH suitcase to get home. (Ha!Ha!Ha!)  
Canvas #1 Using Stampedous and Unity Stamps
And I am sharing these two wee 5x7 canvasses I created using my stamps, Stazon ink and Pebeo's glass paint product - VITRAIL...
Canvas #2 using my Unity Donna Downey Poppies stamp
I first stamped the entire canvas with a book page stamp and Stazon black ink;
I then outlined the flower images with a dimensional paste that mimics stained glass leading;
Can you see how the glaze shimmers and shines when dry?
Then, using pipettes, I filled each space I created with the dimsional paste with these jewel-like colors. As you can see these Vitrail colors are made for glass so they are totally transparent and the stamped images are completely legible through the colored glaze.  
The backgrounds took about 12 hours to dry completely after which I stamped, painted with my InkaGold paints, cut out and mounted using pop dots, one of my favorite Suzi Blu Unity stamps "Chickadee and Me" - so OF COURSE I am linking this up to Unity Stamps' Friday's "Friends with Flair" today!

So you can count on my regular blog posts going forward, and stay tuned for some pretty awesome stuff coming your way using my new Pebeo paints and glazes!!
