Lovely, the depth created with the different textured glass is very appealing!

Nice job!

:clap: I love the way you used the "clear" glass to simulate a pond with a ripple. Very, very nice!

Good work, Scott! It gives a good feeling of depth.

How neat! First time I have seen colored bevels for Roses - did you get them from that place in Canada (Northern Lights, I think?) The Bullseye folliage worked wonderfully well in the picture. It's really something to be proud of!

Thank you everone for the wonderful comments.

Maureen,

I got them at a local glass store, but they are manufactured by the place in canada. not cheep though. $70 us dollars each. my cost in glass alone was over $300. it took me about 35 hours to complete.

Thanks,
Scott

I love your use of the confetti glass.

I have some in my stash but haven't found the right project for it yet. I think some of mine should be put in a kiln and fired though, the confetti can actually be picked off the glass in some places, a real pain in the fingers and hands when you go to move it around, let me tell you! Ever had any experience with this?

Jen - I have seen confetti glass fused flat and the pieces are al safely encased from the clear and it really looks beautiful. Problem is, having a kiln large enough to fuse large pieces!

Wonderful! I've gotta show DH when he gets home. I've designed a bunch of stuff to replace our cabinet doors with and I have a couple of windows that could be replaced.

I love those roses. They were worth every cent.

Thanks Maureen! The pieces I have are about 6" x 12" and luckily I have a friend/neighbor with a nice sized kiln. Now if she'd only move it into her house and set it up I'd be in good shape!

Yeah, you, Ann if you're reading! :D

Thanks again!
