So, I love Pinterest.  I've always liked doing arts and crafts, but Pinterest gives me lots and lots and lots of new ideas!  Plus, it's introduced me to all sorts of things that I'd never heard of and often gives you links that have step by step instructions.  So I've tried a few new projects I found through Pinterest, and I wanted to share them with you.  This is the first time I've done these, so the results are pretty rough.  I still have to figure out the nuances of each style. 

The first thing I tried was making my own ornaments.  This is the first batch, minus one that I messed up and threw away.  Sorry the picture is blurry.  After I took it my camera died and I was too impatient to charge it before taking another one.  Some of them lost their swirly pattern and ended up solid colored.

Here's a close up of one that I think turned out well.

Next, I tried out making etched glass designs and using alcohol ink to create a stained glass appearance.  For the etched glass, I didn't pick the right type of stencil so the design didn't turn out sharp and distinct like it should have.  I used all four sides to try out different designs and such. 

 And here's the alcohol ink one.
So there you have it!  Whenever I make things I really like, I'll probably add them to my Crafts With Christine page, so keep your eyes open!
