I "painted" a ceiling tile for my favorite tex mex place in FL. 

The jalepeno is red glitter vinyl.  The flames are cut out and embellished with glitter paints.  The lips I painted (whew) and decoupaged with the flames.  and the green top of the pepper I knit with eyelash yarn and tacked onto the tile.

On the ceiling.  Once it was up I looked at it from all different sides and decided the this was the 'right way' even though while I was working on it I considered the first photo the correct orientation. 

I love glue.  And Mod Podge.  And lots of glitter.  Unfortunately none of the photos captured the shimmer of all the different glitters. The lips were my first painting with oil paints.  I thoroughly enjoyed working on this!
