My neighbor, Monica, suggested that I try miniatures in fused glass. I resisted the idea at first, but I'm so glad she put the bug in my ear! I love the way it turned out! Thank you, Monica! Enjoy!

This is really cool. I am confused how you accomplished it though. Would you mind giving a very basic run through of what this entailed?

I used a thick piece of Bullseye, painted powdered frit on the back, fired it, then flipped it over and tack fused the rest of the elements to the front. Easy peasy.

I Think both you and your friend deserve a hug. Your friend for poking you, and you for doing it and then sharing with us all it's prettiness! SO very cool. I love that it is so small... yet the chunky, textured frame adds a perfect punch! A great way to brighten up ANY tiny spot instantly. THey are like little ATC's. Each one would be it's own little unique piece of art love.

It's gorgeous!  So the green speckly bits at the bottom of the blue are all part of the background piece?

The blue sky is in the background, all the rest is in the foreground.
