Yes, I have done a few in the past, and bought the little glue on hanging tags, like picture hooks for glass.  You can also buy the corner plastic thingys so you can put them directly into a window......

The reason i mounted these from the clip frames is that they can be art on the wall, and have more depth to them than acrylics/waterbased...(oils way too messy!)  Some people get a bit nervous about putting anything directly on to window glass, so this gets round that problem   Smiley

32  mini glass painting in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by thecraftyminx on: August 11, 2005 02:12:34 AM
Here is a pic of one of my mini postcard sized glass paintings..... done on a 49p clip photoframe.  I drew the image first using a CD marker pen.  Flipped it over and traced over the pen with the relief, and filled in with the paints after it had dried.  I use the foil to line the behind part of the frame, so that it looks metallic and really reflects the light.  The marker pens, fineliners...come in lots of colours now, and can be used to add more details afterwards.  If you want to get rid of the tracing pen lines, use a little nail polish remover......

Hi there,
I have been a "smocker" for about 14 years now, on and off.  My grandmother learnt when she was young, by the old drawing measured dots onto a piece of paper which was then tacked through the dots onto the fabric.  Nowadays, this long drawn out method has become obselete since the smocking pleater has been invented!!

I havent honed my dress making skills enough to make little girls dresses like my grandmother does, but I do make cushion panels which are the easiest form of turning the smocked panel into something usable!

There are more pics in the gallery by the way........
