your Odyssey Sea Glass News #065 - Ban Bland Beach Glass
April 26, 2012
Hi,

Lin_and_DavidIs sea glass in bottles bland?

Not really. Sea glass in jars on the window sill does look nice, but you can use it in many better or more exciting ways!

There are so many ideas that viewers like you have submitted, not only on our crafts pages but on other pages.

Also, have you thought of taking photos of your sea glass and then making gift cards or thank you cards with them?

Try different lighting when taking your photos and also mixing "dry" and "wet" sea glass for interesting photo effects, then put your creativity on everything from coffee mugs to tee shirts.
