Glass Votives.............a paintery project


Now that I know you clever girls love glass, I am on the outlook for creative glass projects. I adore these votives created by the popular wedding blog Once Wed which was inspired by the beautiful talent of Atlanta artist Michelle Armnis. See the instructions here.



Her colorful canvases which you can see here inspired Once Wed to create a paintery tableau that I thought was too gorgeous for words. So did everyone else as it is easily the most popular photo on Pinterest these days. See how it inspiration spread from painting, to flowers, to table setting here (just in case you missed it). Love it when that happens.

  2. I know! Don't you LOVE these? I really loved those votives. I first saw them a few days before I was going to style a wedding for a gal whose colors worked perfectly with them and wanted to do the same thing with the paint and put them in the restrooms - but ran out of time. I settled for framing the image and placing it in the men's restroom. You can kind of see it here:

  4. All I can say is WOW! Not only are those fabulous photos, the items are 2die4. The colors are so refreshing and stunningly beautiful on the canvas, floral arrangement and votives. I only wish she would have said what kind of paint to use. Acrylics?? Oils? Water colors? Water soluable oils? I guess I will try it with acrylics and see how it turns out. Can't wait. So totally beautiful!
