Bug Off!

Garden season is upon us! My DH has started all the veggies in pots around the house and getting anxious to plant! Yesterday he dug up all the flowers and moved them around. I on the other hand did my project inside! This will be hanging in my flower bed this summer! After about 15 coats of modge podge... and a ton of water proof... outdoor sealant! (you know... the kind you put on your fence or deck) So... I have a ton of pics of this project... Hope you like it!

I sure hope I can get this little darlin to seal up tight so the rain doesn't ruin it! What do you guys think? Does it need something else?

Another little tidbit of information.... I have seen a product called "diamond glaze" (which is like a "clear coat" you can make water actually look like glass) floating around blogs... I cannot find it in stores so you have to order it online I guess? Anywayz... while searching for this product I decided to try Clear Gel Tacky Glue by Aleene's to see if I could get the same effects. And... It works... however it does leave tiny bubbles... I am going to try this effect on another project... but this is my first attempt...
I think that wraps it up everyone! Enjoy your week... and Scrap Crazy!
