Window for Elizabeth

 Here's the page that I made for October. The theme is windows for Elizabeth. This is based on the stained glass windows at the Presbytarian Church in Whitefish. I painted two pieces of lutradur. I used one piece as the background and then cut the other piece up into small pieces. I then free motion stitched all the pieces down on to the background and applied commercial felt around the windows.
 This is the back. I had to put a piece of paper on the back because I didn't get the front and back lined up well the first time around.
And  here it is in the sunshine so you can see that it is translucent. I wanted to  make it look like a real window and I'm pleased with how it turned out.

Very cool and unusual! I like the stained glass effect. Don't you love when an idea comes out the way you envisioned it?
