Luckily, earlier this week, I finished a quick little sun catcher project to keep the sunshine in.
It is nothing super-difficult like stained glass. It is a project that you could easily do with the kids!
|My sun catchers add a little something extra|
to my studio windows.
|First, I traced my designs onto vellum paper. I purchased|
mine at a local art supply store but you can
easily find it online.
|I cut some tissue paper into squares to decoupage|
onto two of the circles.
|They curled as they dried, so I sandwiched them |
in plastic wrap and weighted them as they dried.
|I painted others with watercolors that I heavily diluted.|
|These curled as well, so I used coins to weigh|
down the edges.
|Once the dried, I mounted them on the window with|
double-sided tape. If you wanted to hang them, you could create
frames from card stock to mount them in.
You could also use vellum to add a little something extra to cards and invitations.
