Or, What I Did on My Vacation
OK, I admit I’m completely obsessed with window stars lately. I think I mentioned that here a little while ago. Anyway, we had some time off last week and I took all my kite paper and window star books along with me to the mountains. I was determined to challenge myself to make some of the more complex stars. While I was there, in between working, eating, and playing outside, I made eight new stars.
I also accidentally wrecked one, but shed only a few tears about that.
The more you make them, the easier it becomes. I guess I got into a kind of flow.
Lucas helped me make this beautiful multicolored star. He did most of the white center. I’m hoping he’ll want to make some more with me. I think stars like these may be our birthday gifts for everyone this year.
I love the way the light shines through them and I confess I’m crazy about the colors.
My boys wanted one for their room in their favorite colors, blue and green. Now that we’re home again, the stars have all found spots on our windows here, sharing space with the Valentine window transparencies I made last month, which are still up because I adore them.
I’ve also been experimenting and will share my results very soon, if it all works out the way I think it will.
