Christmas is always in our hearts and this week Melissa has made Christmas in February a sight to behold. Her Gingerbread man even has 'icing' on it to form his face, buttons as well as his arm and leg decorations. And just to clear things up that icing is actually Vitrea 160 Glass Paint. This is one cute window that makes me hungry for gingerbread cookies!
At the last moment Sheri added blue borders to the left and right side of her window and I think it was a good decision. It not only framed the window but balanced it as well. Her version of the Modern Tulip Window has a bit of a Frank Lloyd Wright feel to it because those blue stripes make it resemble his Tree Of Life windows. I also like that Sheri added more color to this. It adds a bit of punch while still retaining most of its monochromatic origins.
Let got her Sunflower Heart completed and you can clearly see the hints of pink that run throughout the background of the Sunflower. Its subtle pink shadings made it the perfect glass to be surrounded by the pastel pink of the heart. Again Let has made another perfectly formed heart with no straight sections or unwanted points anywhere to be found.
Bee has moved on to the center portion of her Front Door Window and cut all of the strips required to assemble the 'centerpiece' on her strip cutter board, with her strip cutter, all by herself. She took to the strip cutter like a fish to water and never wavered off course even once. When all the glass was striped she then cut the proper angles on the ends of the pieces resulting in the final cluster that you see below. Oh, and she also got everything ground as well! You could say that she was as busy as a bee.
Everyone was in high gear this week as Let not only finished working on her Heart Suncatcher but also completely cut out a Flower Window as well. Just one week in and Let is ready to move on over to the grinder!
Martha decided to cut out the blue bird in her window before she moved onto the roses and was going to make it all out of the same piece of blue until we told her to mix it up a bit with various other blues and colors . As you can see she did just that and therefore made the bird more natural and pleasing to look at.
Ann has the round blue background to her newest Religious 3D Icon Window all ground and is ready to move on over to the wrapping phase of the construction of this window. The symbol that will 'float' above this background will be all lead save for the glass (which you will never see) that will be encased in the lead. More on that as it comes to fruition in the weeks to come.
