You should all know by now how crazy I am for etched glass. It is so beautiful, easy, and inexpensive. What's not to love?
I find myself constantly seeing glass objects around and wondering if I could etch them. In order to prevent my house from getting over run with our initials (I don't think there's anything more beautiful!), I limit myself to etching projects at holidays only.
In preparation for Valentine's Day (my favorite! I love celebrating love!) I actually woke up in the middle of the night with the idea of etching a picture frame with the word "LOVE" and adding a picture behind it.
I tried to find similar things on Google Images, but nothing showed up. So I decided to make my own mock-up to try and envision my project:
I used this picture of my husband and I in our wedding clothes that my SIL, Betsy, took of us in their hometown of Petoskey, MI. I've always loved the shots of us on top of a train!
Unfortuanately, the etching wasn't as dark as I'd hoped.
The difference between the etched and non-etched isn't strong enough
to really put a picture behind :(
Or maybe I'm still looking for that perfect picture to show in just the right places :)
Good luck trying your own!
