If the hosta one looks anything like the daylilly one it will be spectacular!

I like the garden scene one best, reminds me of the quilts created by HostanQuilts (Jan). Is the shine a the reflection of the flash?

Those look so cool! Wouldn't it be neat if they all looked like that in the bowling alley? :wink:

notmartha, I love the daylilly one!! Have you thought of taking them to a bowling alley? That would be really pretty next to their cash register and I'm betting you could take requests?

How did you do that? And how would you do it to clay pots?

They look so cool! Nice job. :D

you would do it the same way as doing the bowling balls

you just get the picture and spread the mod podge glue (with a 1in paint brush) on the back of the picture
then stick it on the ball(or pot) and rub it flat trying to get out as many creases as you can-at the same time i apply a coat over the top of the picture and then rub my fingers over the picture smoothing it out and making sure its stuck down good. When I know its good and stuck i take my paint brush and smooth out the mod podge evenly and move on to the next picture!

you get goooooooooooooooy!

I may try to sell them but have no idea what to ask?

Really beautiful. I really must hit the lottery, so I can quit my job but still have money to do all the stuff I want to do.
