    I have been on the board since 2010 and this is the first day I have read about the insert photo icon. I don't know what all those cymbals mean but am going to try inserting a photo. I always use the "Go Advanced" box below.Name:  Summer blk white wall wall hanging.jpeg

    I looked at some of the sites mentioned. On 211-05-01...., she complained that it wasn't as 3D as she had expected. With an attic window, the sides of the window are not the same color as the "sill" Even if you paint your window sides and bottoms the same color, the sides and the bottom will look different because of how the light hits. This is what makes Attic Window three dimensional. The site marijasfabric shows the three denominational effect very well

    Thanks from Teresa in North Carolina
    One suggestion might be to take a full page of the comics, cut some paper strips and do a paper example.

    The attic window is fairly simple as long as your get the mitered corners of the window sill down.

    PS I did find this, scroll down and she has a "modified attic window block":

    Or really cheat and buy a couple different ribbons and just applique them. IRL, there would be a bit of the scene we couldn't see because of the window mullions.

    ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh boy. You need to get your faces in the blocks. IMO, not a great candidate for an attic window.

    EXCEPT. what you might do, is lay waxed paper (or parchment paper) or clear plastic covering over the panel and and play around with paper strips to see the best place for your window sills. When you are happy with the placement, then start cutting.

    I think I'd change the design of my "window" a bit. One big "pane" in the center to get the two wolves, then smaller window panes around the edges.

    OR, cheat as I suggested before and leave the panel as it is and just applique ribbon to make sills.
