Ever just have a vision for a project, clear as day, but it just does not come out at all or even close to how you expected? This is another addition to add to our craft fail shelf. I had recently heard that Mod Podge came out with sheer tinted colors. You've probably seen people on Pinterest tinting mason jars different colors, you can use the sheer tint Mod Podge to do that. 

So why couldn't I do that on a glass frame in a chevron pattern?! Sort of creating a stained glass effect.

The intention was to use stencil vinyl to cut a chevron background over the glass of a frame and then overlay a vinyl Valentine's related message. If only it was that easy.

I painted a few coats the Mod Podge over the pattern stencil but when I went to peel of the stencil not only did the stencil come off but also the Mod Podge. The Mod Podge has become one with the stencil vinyl and acted more as a sticker.

At least pulling of the stencil vinyl left the glass clean and back to its almost original state. At least I can use it again?! I am still excited about the new sheer tint Mod Podge but maybe I will stick to mason jars at first!

Make sure to enter the giveaway below! Weekend Craft and 20 other bloggers have come together to spread the love for Valentine's Day.
