 Morning Guys hope everyone is OK 
A bit off all sorts here my granddaughter has been ill and gave her cold 
to me and a bad cough on top now losing me voice LOL
so i am a bit of a mess so this is a quick post from me today.
Itza my DT sister held a challenge over in the group
the bling chronicles   On Facebook 
Called "what's in your window" I enjoyed this challenge 
being different and all, we also had to make 3 thing to go in the back 
There is a template for this in the group.

So I picked a cottage garden and made a small note book and a small
canvas and added a card i already had.

Christmas candle vase with Etcall


 Hi guys hope everyone is doing ok,
Things have been a bit nuts here, trying to sort the house 
so we can do the tree and stuff now final got the shopping done.
Just need to wrap it.lol


 Today's tutorial is a candle holder using  Etchall 


I found this fab vase in a local charity shop for £1.50
I decided that i wanted only the bottom doing,





I took the glass and washed it to make sure there is no smudges or dirt
then added some masking tape so I knew how much dip I  needed,
I then added the water to the level of the tap,
I then used a marker to mark the water leave.





 After that I the got rid of the water then I dried  the vase and the bowl 
do make sure there well and truly dry,


 Then I put the vase back in the bowl and added the Etch "n" dip
To the marker line. I used a heavy jar to hold the vase in place,







Left it for 15min, Then i took the vase out and then put it in 
a bowl of soapy water to rinse the vase off.
Then I put the solution back in its jar. Which is one thing I love about Etchall
Is you can use it over and over again.




This is the vase after washing and drying, 
I then used stuff from my stash to jazz up the stand.
Hope you like it.
Thank you so much for stopping by 
your comments are greatly received

Love n Hugs

Etched mirror


 Good evening all hope everyones having a great day
And a big Happy Thanks giving to all my American friends.

I have made a beautiful mirror for my little sister she wants a 
girly bedroom so I thought I would put her name on it.

Using Etchall 

I used some large letters and put them down the side,

I then marked the wood to were I wanted the tape to be
giving me a nice block.

 I then added some masking tape i would recommend you tape all that you don't
want etched.
I then added the creme to the tape and pulled it over the glass and covered
all of the glass to be etched.








Then after the 15 min wait scrap all the creme off and add back to 
the bottle. Which gets darker the more you use.

 Then I used a tissue to wipe the rest of and a glass cleaner
then took of the tape.

This is how it looks after cleaning.




I then painted the frame and stand 2 shades of 
pink once dry added some lace, flowers, and bling
all from my stash.



Now as its coming to the end of the month
