Turn your Child’s Art into Stained Glass

Price: $40 BUY NOW!

DSCN2463-2Making this stained glass design has been incredibly invigorating to me. Earlier this year, I created an idea for my online Etsy Shop that people could have their child’s art turned into a stained glass window suncatcher. I know my son was tickled pink when I turned his artwork into stained glass (click to see his art), so I thought that other families might find this to be a rich and meaningful experience as well. 

And now, thanks to Shannon who purchased this idea as a thoughtful and creative gift for her daughter’s grandparent, I got to work with the art her 3-year-old daughter created.  It all came alive to me when Shannon explained why her daughter chose to draw this picture. 

“This is my daughter’s idea of the ocean, beach, a shark and pieces of sea glass and shark teeth on the beach.  She spends vacations searching for these things with my parents. She turned 3 in July and is obsessed with sharks and their teeth.”

I love the energy and sense of balance in this drawing. Using my stained glass software, I was able to provide Shannon with some options for her suncatcher design. She chose the design and colours of the middle circular suncatcher.

And here is the final stained glass suncatcher.  I know that the grandparents are going to adore this gift, and I’m so thankful to have been asked to create art with Shannon’s daughter.

Stained Glass Snowflake Design

Stained Glass Snowflake DesignThe cooler weather has come and with that in mind, I’m excited to bring these pretty snowflake designs to my Christmas Craft Fair this weekend.  I’ve made them in green and white, as well, but these blue ones are my personal favourites.  They are pretty to hang in the window all through the winter, not just as a Christmas decoration.

Stained Glass Heart Design

Price: $20 BUY NOW!

Two pretty stained glass heart designs for your window. These colours are inspired by my walk in the forest, where the beautiful colours of the oregon grape plant kept catching my eye: dusty blue berries on rich red stems, surrounded by crisp green leaves.  I couldn’t decide whether to use a red stripe or a green stripe, so I made both options.  Which is your favourite?

Stained Glass Dragonfly DesignThese stained glass suncatchers are inspired by the colourful dragonflies flitting around my garden. I thought to myself “Why not enjoy these lovely creatures from my window all year around?” So I created a graceful lovely design in ten beautiful colours to suit any home decor. I love that the textured wings shimmer a whole rainbow of colours. Each dragonfly is 6.5″ tall x 4.5″ wide and has a little loop for hanging from the window

Stained Glass Ocean Scenery Design

Stained Glass Ocean Scenery Design

This stained glass suncatcher of a sailboat in the ocean scenery is created from a sketch I drew sitting in a little dingy off the coast of Powell River, Canada. It was a beautiful day, the hills were such pleasing shapes, a sailboat sailed right into the picture and I was inspired. I think this scenery brings joy and memories of beautiful days spent at the water.

Stained Glass Gem Heart Design

Price: SOLD

Stained Glass Gem Heart Design

A pretty stained glass heart design for your window. I love that the bright blue gems really glow next to this beautifully patterned glass heart. The pattern in the clear glass reminds me of ice crystals on a winter window or icicles hanging from the eaves on a crisp, sunny winter day.  So pretty.

Stained Glass Blue Songbird in a Green Tree

Price: $30 BUY NOW!

Stained Glass Song Bird in Green Tree Design

I’ve created a new addition to my blue bird in the circle tree designs.  This stained glass suncatcher features a songbird singing a sweet little tune to cheer us up every day of the week.  The green glass is difficult to describe because it has swirls at different depths in the glass, making it very layered and dimensional.

I’ve also made a version of this suncatcher with pink swirl glass, for those of you that like things a little more girly.  You can click this little pink link  to check that one out on my Etsy shop.
