Carnival Glass Project ~FINALLY FINISHED~

Wow!!!!  How many weeks did it take me to complete this mundane project?  Several bandaids later, I finally finished this beautiful piece of carnival glass art.  I was given the flower print in it's original frame without glass covering it.  It was an array of beautiful pink and red peonies, green leaves, amber chrysanthemum with light and dark blue Blue Bell Bonet flowers.  I was lucky enough to have all the colors in carnival glass.  I painstakingly hand cut each piece and finally called it done last night after pricking my left thumb for the millionth time.

I must admit I went out into my art studio this morning, coffee in hand staring at my blank workspace and then it hit me, I was totally bummed, what am I going to do next?  I walked around the house and found just what I was looking for...a new project for carnival glass, however this one is three times as large and the flowers are very tiny so I anticipate a lot of bandaids will need to be bought.

I took photos in all different angles and lighting, but to truly appreciate it's beauty, one must see it in person standing about ten feet away.

Hugs and Love,
Fluffy Puppies...wOOf...wOOf...
