Where does time go?

I can't believe another week has disappeared and the next couple of weeks will go even faster as I will have both hubby and son at home so can't see me getting much crafting done. It is Saturday as I write this just in case things go to pot tomorrow and as hubby is helping my son with a couple of things he isn't sure about on a school project , an animated project way beyond me I'm sneaking in some craft and computer time and will pop to keep them fed and watered . It sounds quite exciting and have to say I'm intrigued to see the finished product as I sit in the room above where they are and keep hearing what sounds like Darth Vader.

Slap hands, not what I'm here to tell you about. Sunday brings the next challenge from OSAAT and we are expecting to get loads of entries this time round as the theme is anything goes so definitely no excuses.

I had the pleasure of choosing an image from Debs collection and chose the Camellia in watering can which you too can play with after purchasing it from here at stitchy bear stamps.

I wanted to do something a little different and as I haven't done any glass painting for a while thought this image would look fab as stained glass. My back french doors and upstairs windows are quite large and when the baby starlings and blackbirds first take to flight they frequently try to come through them open or not. I have found that if I put something on the window they don't have quite as many collisions and we don't hear as many thuds, and it really must hurt them sometimes.

After printing the image I used it as a template pattern for the out liner and then simply infilled with glass paint. The disk I then circumvented with double sided tape on both sides and attached some blue satin ribbon. The longest part was waiting for the paint to dry.

I would like to enter my pretty flowers into the following challenges:-

2 sisters-how does your garden grow?
Digi doodles shops best-pink and blue
Creative craft world-anything but a square
Creative card crew-flowers
Top tip Tuesday-focus on flowers
Stamp scrap and doodle-old supplies(acrylic circle and glass paints)

We have a wonderful sponsor this time the fab Joanna Sheen who I can personally say has both an efficient and prompt delivery and even better customer service.Even if you aren't lucky enough to win pop across and check out her store and not sure about overseas but last time I bought something p+p was free.

Come on now lets see those entries flood in!

Absolutely gorgeous! As someone who's tried (and failed) with glass painting, I'm thoroughly impressed with this - truly lovely project.

(Still never sure how to pronounce your name - I'm stuck between like 'Julie' and like 'July' so in my head, you get one or the other pretty randomly!)

Oooh Julye !!

What a gorgeous creation. I have never tried glass painting ever. But your beautiful creation has inspired me to give it a try..

Thanks for sharing with us at Creative Craft World, for our 'Anything but square' challenge.

How thoughtful of you to create something so beautiful and help stop the little birdies from flying into your back door, can't be nice for you to hear and obviously not for them either.

Great idea to transfer the image to glass and your finished item is lovely.
