What’s In My Future?

According to the Fortune Teller, I'll be having a little Tropical Island getaway!  Wouldn't that be nice?  Temperatures here in Iowa have been pretty chilly and Autumn is in full swing.  The leaves are falling from the trees and the plants are resting until Spring.
For my "Fortune Teller" Globe, I've used Card Decor Set #7, Vintage Gold Piccolo Enamel and Vintage Black Piccolo Enamel.  The card decor sets are perfect for off the page projects.  The Clear ball is a Clear Christmas Ornament and can be purchased at many Craft Stores.  I've used acetate for the inside and adhered a "Fortune" to the front.  The bottom base is a tuna can that has been heat embossed with Vintage Gold.  The decorative cover was an antique shoppe find.  Place a small battery operated teal light in the can and it lights the glass ball!

I used some fiber fill in a pair of vintage gloves and glued them to the ball.
This is my last post for Hobby Baby and it's been lots of fun and an opportunity to work with some amazing products.  Hope you get a chance to make your "fortunes" come true :)

Thanks Mae for the fun opportunity!
