Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for over 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Summer Garden Mason Jar Luminary

This week in my Cindi's Simple Solutions article for When Creativity Knocks I'm sharing this Summer Garden Mason Jar Luminary project featuring etchall®DecoArt®JudiKins™ and Loew-Cornell™ products.

I love adding pretty accent pieces to my summer garden.  This luminary offers a splash of color in the daylight, and then with the press of the button on the lid it gives off a soft glow through the etched glass and semi-translucent colorful flowers in the evening.







Materials:
  • Mason jar
  • etchall® etching cream (www.etchall.com)
  • Loew-Cornell™ paint brush (www.loew-cornell.com
  • Loew-Cornell™ TransformMason™ – LED Lid Insert, Wide Mouth Wire Handles 
  • DecoArt® Glass Paint Markers™ – Yellow, Violet, Orange, Fuchsia (www.decoart.com)
  • JudiKins™ Ricky Ticky Stickies Cube stamp (www.judikins.com
  • Pliers
  • AAA batteries 
Instructions:
  1. Coat entire outside of jar with etchall cream.  Wait 15 minutes, return cream to bottle and rinse jar to clean.  Let dry.  
  2. Apply fuchsia DecoArt Glass Paint Marker directly to one flower on JudiKins Ricky Ticky Stickies cube and stamp onto etched jar.  Repeat randomly around jar.  Repeat with violet marker on a different flower, yellow marker on a different flower, and orange marker on a  different flower, allowing flowers to overlap each other until desired effect is achieved.   Flowers will be somewhat translucent – this is the effect you want so the light will shine through the flowers themselves. 
  3. Follow manufacturer instructions for curing Glass Paint Markers on glass. 
  4. If the Loew-Cornell TransformMason handles are too large for the jar you have used, simply use a pair of pliers to bend back the end that hooks to close the handle to make the opening a bit smaller, then place it onto the jar. 
  5. Insert  AAA batteries into the TransformMason LED light and  place light and lid piece into the top of the jar.
