A New Way to Scrapbook

Using a discount, I took a "Crash Glass" class at a stained glass store in a nearby suburb. It is essentially a scrapbook layout enhanced with glass. Images, papers, et cetera (items must be flat) are epoxied to the top of the glass in a picture frame. Larger pieces of glass are epoxied over focal images and the rest of the area is filled in with broken tempered glass. Grout to fill in the gaps and hold everything together and you are done. I had some areas with too much epoxy that kept the grout from being as clean as I'd like. Overall, though, I think it looks good for my first attempt.
