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.
