Studio in the sky

I have a sliding door picture window that fills one wall of my studio. It looks out on to the garden which is a mix of vegetable patch, grass, and flowerbeds; all grinning at me for attention. To anyone else whose job it does not belong to, it is lovely. The trouble is a combination of the distraction of the garden and the often excessive heat and sunlight in the summer and then the opposite in the winter. Plus the double glazing has now blown, with the delightful tell-tale moisture that builds up between the panes of glass. I am not about to replace this anytime soon. So what to do?
Then I had an idea when I saw The Stencil Library’s Elizabethan fretwork stencil in their ‘Stencil It’ book. I used their tear-out stencil and followed their instructions and decided frosting spray might be a good idea. Now it feels less of a distraction and the room has more of an encased feel to it. I am pleased.
