Easter means different things to different people. For some, it is all about bunnies, Easter eggs, hot cross buns and public holidays. For others, it is the most important day on the religious calendar. But although Easter is a celebration of the resurrection from the dead of Jesus Christ, did you know the Easter holiday is also based on an ancient Pagan ritual?
Easter dates change every year because it is also based on the Pagan ritual of the Spring Equinox, which is a celebration of new life and the change that comes with spring.
For my project tonight decided to celebrate both aspects of Easter – the Pagan and the religious celebration of Easter – by referencing the beautiful stained glass windows of the churches I would celebrate Easter morning in as a minister’s daughter. The Painted Glass Clear-Mount Bundle and Graceful Glass 6″ X 6″ Designer Vellum was just perfect for this.
After colouring in my sheet with my Stampin blends, I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies to make a window frame for my stained glass window.
I then mounted my frame using the Foam Adhesive Strips and hey presto, I had created a beautiful stained glass window!
The Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies were put to good use again for my Daffodil Delight layering mat and for my sentiment, which was stamped using the “You’re Inspiring” stamp set.
To celebrate new life and the change of season my final touch was a butterfly resting gently on my window…I think it makes my butterflies in my window come to life and look like they might fly away too!
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented, Caroline Manwaring.
