Back for more .... reprise

I hope nobody notices the gap of 4 months between the very, if I may say so myself: enthousiastic post last time saying "Back for more",  and this one. :-)
Anyway, time flies when you're having fun and it is true as some renovations at home came first and the livingroom looks great.
Also, designing a window or panel is much more difficult then making one. I have difficulties putting my ideas in a drawing on paper or in a computer program and then it takes time to work out the colours and which glass to use.  Problems, problems....

But here it is: my latest and very own design.  I have drawn it (like my other windows) on green paper which is actually wall paper and easy to draw on because of the lines and using it when I have cut out all the different pieces I find it very strong and a little water resistant which is good.

As I have had a somewhat difficult time over the past year and a half, I have tried to symbolise this experience and my little family of 3, who have helped and supported me so much, in the design.
In my next post I'll put in a photo with a little more colour so you will have an idea of how it will look when finished.

  1. Beautiful! Some of those pieces look difficult but not for one quickly becoming an old master like you!

    1. Thank you Sherry ! I agree there are difficult pieces but I think the glass I will be using is strong and there is no time pressure :-)
