C is for Cathedral Inchie
So, this was hard! But after consideration and since I just finished reading the Tiffany Glass Co story, I decided a stained glass window would be my cathedral concept. I had it in my head to do a glass painting to mimic an actual stained glass window. I used to do a lot of glass painting a million years ago... or well, 30 years ago. Then I realized that would cost a lot for the supplies for one single inch, so I decided to do a drawing as my "sample" and then decide how I wanted to proceed. Well, once I finished my sample, I decided it would work just as is! I drew it, inked it with highlighters and sharpies, then covered the whole thing with nail polish to make it shiny. The picture doesn't really show the shine, but I'm happy with this result and I'm loving that every inchie I've done so far has been totally different than any of the others. Don't know how long I can keep that up... we'll see!
As always, thank you Every Inchie Monday for the inspiration to create.
