Want to share my new design, a mini glass island with cottage houses and trees around it. It's a very small glass dome (diameter 2.7", height 1.5"), so makes a perfect paperweight for me.

Hope you will enjoy looking at it as I do Smiley

I love how the colors are reflected and magnified within the dome!

Beautiful!
The border is cute and colorful.
The reflections though the glass are mesmerizing. I could spend a lot of time looking at it and moving slightly to observe the changes.

Thank you for the lovely compliments Smiley

I had drawn the houses with relief paste first and then paint the inside with translucent glass paints.

It's interesting that there are some swirls inside the glass dome, so from certain angle the swirls look like smoke from chimney  Cheesy
