WINDOWS



Here we go again with a new challenge for you! Because it's a busy time of year for everyone we've decided that this will run over the next 2 weeks to give you a bit longer, and then we'll set another challenge on 19th December to run into the New Year. After that it will be back to weekly as usual.

So this challenge is to make a window, and we hope this gives you plenty of scope to make something as simple as an ATC (which my Frida window is) if time is short, or something much larger if you want to. My vintage window is based around a wooden picture frame, into which I inserted some wooden struts to give a window-like appearance.

Don't forget that shrines can be windows too, as in the little photo - which is only about the size of a matchbox and was made with a kit from Retro Cafe Art. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!! Don't forget - no panic with this one because you have two weeks to do it.

I love the diversity of your entries, and I hope you welcome digital art as well. Mine is digitally created, but it includes a photo of an original oil painting. Thanks for looking!

Hi Linda and Rosie! Thanks for the extra time. I've been neglecting some of my very favorite challenges because of the Christmas crafting/sewing, etc. This will really help. Love the theme!
