I just discovered something about 35 mm print photos. Light goes right through them and you can see your photo on either side.
Imagine a lightbulb with a pinwheel on top, maybe several different types of photos of fireplaces, water falls and even a covered wagons and you could have a action lamp of the 50s.
Well, not as big but, what if you could project shows off the pictures through those photos onto a plain lamp shade. It Works! I wish I had a pinwheel for on top of the lightbulb. That isn't something you can easily make, At least not me!
I made a suncatcher for the morning sunny window. I cut the picture, which was a double, to size to fit in one if those little cross stitch frames.
What I cut out was blue with a few puffy clouds sky with two full leafed trees reaching for it. I tried it against the setting sun and it lit up. The funny part, the sun was coming from practically the same view as that bit of photo.
Oh well. I think this has gift possibilities for my friends and relatives. Not much cost in it but they can enjoy the scene for many years hanging in their window.
Hey, I hope I helped someone else to even come up with more ideas.
A picture is worth how many words?
Happy idea making from Mr.Thrifty from Shermans Dale, PA
