I have always found comfort and happiness when I was busy designing and creating. I have many interests and talents and often I am torn when deciding which art medium to work creatively in. Decorative painting is my first love; however, I also enjoy stenciling, jewelry making, sewing, crochet, needlework of all kinds, cooking, card making, faux finishes, decorating and gardening. Working in the craft and hobby industry for many years, I have enjoyed the pleasures of traveling, teaching, and sharing with others basic crafting how-tos! Currently, I am employed as the Marketing Education Director at Plaid. My career journey to this day, is still allowing me the gift of sharing with others the joys of crafting and finding their creative spirits! I hope that our creative paths may cross one day. Until then... happy creating!

Gently squeeze the bottle allowing the paint to flow onto the cling as
shown on the cling package inset photo.
Continue painting all frosted areas on the clings. NOTE:
Do not paint the unfrosted areas as these areas are designed to be
free of paint and will allow the ceramic or glass surface color to show
through. Allow the paint to thoroughly
dry before moving the cling.
Brush Technique –Squeeze a small amount
of Liquid Fill Transparent paint onto foam plate. Load the tip of a detail glass paint brush
