Art and craft

I seem to be busy with lots of things that aren't writing or blogging at the moment. One of the things I'm doing is making window clings for the hall. I did have a perfectly good window cling but Rufus was fascinated by a bubble in the centre that is now a hole.

I'm getting some more paints for my birthday, so I'm thinking of doing one based on a design of my own. (The one above is based on this template.)

Some time ago, I doodled a witch's cottage:

I thought I might base a design on the cottage, or maybe the bird. I'm not sure how that will work out, though.

You have a bird?

That's a darned good doodle - doodles!! You artist you!

And the tree thing is amazing - how do you create window clings? Sounds ever so complicated - can't wait to see the finished product!

I'm sure Rufus would approve! :-)

take care

Thanks, Kitty! I'm sure Rufus does approve! This time, though, I haven't taken the backing sheet off, so he can't get his little claws into it.

There's a video of how to make a window cling here.

I like the tree, but I really want to see the witch's cottage.

I agree: you're an artist.

Thanks, Bevie!

Hi again!!

I just watched how to make window clings - you can put them on vases and glass jars and tiles! It was so amazing!!

Thank you for that link - I hope you get your lovely tree done - I think you can really be as elaborate as you wish with these clings - just need a really steady hand and a lot of patience!

Take care

Kitty, it's good fun and I want to make several more. We have windows in the hall that feel very exposed and its a good way of covering them up!

Great idea and what a helpful link, thank you!

I can see some of these being given as presents this year (am trying to make more rather than buy things as it saves money but costs time, therefore equals a more genuine gift).

BucksWriter, presents is a good idea! Although the paint is not particularly cheap.

How wonderfully creative. Would love to see the witch's cottage. Looking forward to hearing and seeing more.
