Just thought I'd let you know I was dreaming about you...LOL does that make me sound psycho or just BDW obsessed?

Um, yes and no...I do like the way it looks, but if you're not happy, then definately redo it. I'd say scrape it off if you can and start from scratch. Use a different glue (maybe buy two of the ones suggested by other people and try them both to see which you like working with - return the other hehe) and then use the various size crystals in random orders so that you can fill in as much space as possible. Also, work in sections, so that if you have to stop, you'll know where to pick back up and it'll be a little easire.
Good luck! I can't wait to see the final product!

Not sure that this is the best suggestion but.....
how about brushing a little glue/nail polish in the voids and trying a little colored sugar (the cake decorating kind). I first thought of sand but I think sugar is less granular and hey you can even grind it to a fine powder if needed.
It just doesn't seem worth taking all the crystals off.

Do you think over-lapping them will look bad?? Like, where there are gaps, take a crystal and glue it in between, so some with be on the surface and some will be above?? ORR is there a colored "K" you can use, or a glossy peice of paper to use as a backsplash This way it wont be so obvious that there are gaps. (i didnt think it was obvious though, i liked it!)

Agape, "Hypo Cement/glue" Can you get that in a regular craft store? The needlepoint applicator is sounding like just what I need!
