Hi everyone!  Hope your all surviving the heat.  Here in Arizona, were at 104 degrees today.  As they say at least it's a dry heat.  It's so much worse when our monsoon hits in July and August.  Then you ad in the humidity and it's truly miserable.  Especially if, unfortunately, like me you don't have air conditioning. I, and many others have swamp coolers that work great unless theirs humidity.  Then it's horrible.

On to the crafting!  Today I thought you all might like to see a different type of craft than what I normally post.  I've posted before on the great benefits of decoupage.  Last time I used a pickle jar.  Take a look at my previous posts, and you'll find the jar I did.

Today I decided to use a cute heart candy bowl that I got from Dollar Tree.  Can't beat the price either.  I used Mod Podge to glue down the light pink tissue paper on the bottom of the bowl. Then I cut out some really cute butterflies and a bird from designer paper napkins that I picked up at Tuesday Morning.  There are usually 2-3 layers of the napkins, so if you can, try and peel them apart to make the napkin more transparent.  If not, don't worry about it, your project will still look great.  Then I glued down the butterflies all around the inside edge of the bowl first.  Next I glued the tissue paper over the butterflies. Now you can only see the butterflies from the outside of the bowl.  Then I tried to match up the same butterflies and glued those on top of the first butterflies.  I then glued the bird to the bottom of the bowl.  Last thing I did was to take a Krylon leafing pen and inked the top edge.  I think this came out so cute.  All you need is some Mod Podge, glass, and some tissue paper, or even a magazine cut out.  Can you imagine the possibilities!!!  Your only limited by your imagination.  Give this a try.  You'll be presently surprised.  Happy crafting!!!
