Now, a little something to go with my fun new inspiration board -- glass bead push pins!
I had been eying those neat glass stone push pins and magnets in cute shops for quite some time and this summer I decided to have a go at making my own. I used some art patterns I had designed last year for a different project. You can use artwork, scrapbook paper, photos or initials. I printed mine out: Cut out little circles. Glued them to the flat side of the glass beads [available at any craft store]:Then I found some flat headed push pins and glued those on, too!Tip: Following several recommendations, I used Diamond Glaze adhesive. It really does work best at hiding the flaws and ridges in the glass.
I also bought some of the bigger glass disks that I haven't used, yet. With those I hope to be able to fit some Bible verses and images from my paintings on! You can also use small photographs, initials - almost anything! And it's the same process for magnets, too.
