Glimmer Mist Flowers

Here is my latest creation. This is one of those ugly gold things that painted white.This photo is the back side I found this little heart when I was going through the buttons. It was red, so I sprayed it with pink Glimmer Mist it gave it a beautiful shimmer. The flowers weren't the right I sprayed them with glimmer Mist, I put glue in the centers and added German Glass Glitter, also a touch on the petals.

I glittered the pin tops. I found some great vintage buttons that I added
I used a lighter colored Glimmer Mist or the daisy. The candles are Cranberry Tea Candles that are in their own little cup. I painted the base a pale pink and painted a rose and buds, on both sides. This will be on my Ebay

WoW! What a response to my buttons!'s what I think I'll do, I have bagged up a LOT of bags, I have a few more to, If you email me with your address...I will send them out until I run out, say "Buttons".Stacey and I went to a Home store...we came across this table...we laughed and said...WHAT A CONTAINER FOR A BIRD!!! I whipped out my camera...what do you think??!! A bit big??? lol

One quick trip to a Goodwill, found 2 of these vintage cuties! I'm sure I can get a birdie to fit in it somehow!! LOl... I look forward to hearing from everyone...give me a few days to get the buttons in the mail to you.

I did send you an email Laurie. That one piece does seem a little big, maybe you would need to do a whole NEST of birds! I love the vase. Can't wait to see how you use it.

As for your current creation that you posted . . . WOW! How gorgeous is that? I really need to purchase some Glimmer Mist. Your little additions to this one are spectacular!
