I’m okay so far with how my window project is turning out. I cut out two pieces of davey board verses chipboard because i felt that it would stand up stronger. Now, “standing” seems to be the whole focus. i’m wondering if I should add the handle that picture frames have on the back of them, to make it stand upright. I wrapped two pieces of davey board (1/4 of a larger piece from the pack I bought) and lightly glued a piece of transparency paper in between. Meredith’s ideas have beeeen soo helpful. Thank you Meredith!
I then measured out and deliberated between colored curtains. The effect is for the narrator’s window in her trailer park. At first I was going to take Meredith’s idea of spray painting the board. However, I saw this artist’s paper that was a dusty orange and which reminded me of the place where the narrator lived. I therefore wrapped the board, as we’ve done with the hard-covers, and then glued it to an identical one. I lightly superglued the edges of cream colored curtains and tied them with a light blue bow.
For the rest of the project, I need to cut an excerpt from the story that will work with my weight issue. I would like to wrap the story into a scroll and inbetween a light clear plastic piece that will serve as the window shade. I then wish to tie this with a piece of string , so that this piece acts as the window shade. Eeeee ! Bye for now!
