When I was asked to create a project for the Spring blog hop, I had the hardest time trying to decide what to create - I was overwhelmed with ideas! Since Easter is just around the corner and I love working with glass, I finally decided to make a "faux" stained glass piece to hang in a window.
I purchased a float glass frame for this project. This type of frame includes 2 pieces of glass and no backing. The design is a combination of a photograph of the Amaryllis growing in front of my house and graphic art I designed for this project.
I printed the artwork onto Craft Attitude, applied it (printed side down) to one of the pieces of glass then placed the second piece of glass on top. The film clings to the glass easily. Remove the backing slowly, smoothing as you go with your fingers, or a soft cloth. If there are any wrinkles in the film, carefully lift the film then smooth out the wrinkles working from the center to the outer edges.
I used fishing wire to hang the frame from the top of the window, but you can also prop it up in a well lit corner.
I posted a jpeg of the artwork, minus the flowers, on the "Images for Personal Use" page here on my blog if you would like to use it. You can drag the image off onto your desktop then click to open in "Preview" or, import the jpeg into a Word document if you would like to re-size.

KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON CRAFTING!
