I have been sort of in love with all the altered glass creations I’ve seen on Pinterest. There are some seriously talented people who’ve made altered art I can only swoon over.
I decided I’d try a little altered art as well. The cool thing is that it’s not supposed to be perfect, so the pressure was off! I’ve had these tiny red bowls for a long time. I think I found them at a yard sale and never really had a use for them. They were just begging for Mod Podge!
These were so much fun to make. I love having Mod Podge & glitter all over my hands! You should try some altered glass creations of your own. Who knows what you’ll come up with!
I used some pages from an old book that’s falling apart and covered two of the bowls in Mod Podge and the torn pages. (I kept the third bowl for another project.)
Once they were dry, I brushed them lightly with a few of my ink pads. I used some golden brown, a little black, and a hint of blue.
I gave them another coating of antique Mod Podge, sprinkled on a bit of super fine glitter, and let them dry again. I purposefully left the foot of the tiny bowls without paper and instead put extra glitter on them. Altered art shouldn’t look too perfect, so I wanted some red peeking through.
I had a sheet of three dimensional stickers with tiny fairies on them from somewhere, and a package of scrapbook elements shaped like pocket watches. I used them to embellish my altered glass bowls, and gave them a brush with the ink pads as well.
