Photo prism project

These are a few of the finished prisms on a darker background that allows them to show up a little better..........(I added this photo later so it posted first--too lazy to do it all over, and haven't yet figured out how to edit existing posted photos--don't think you can on Blogspot, can you?)

I found these large glass prisms at an antique show last weekend--they are about 6" x 31/2" in size.

Used vintage architectural photos for the theme. Just cut out copies of your favorite photos, and decoupage them on the back, then add the wire and embellishments---I can't decide whether to add more hanging tiny stuff to them. (That is the fun part of blogging, you can see how it looks published, and make changes later if needed)

I can see a tiny old photo tucked into the wire on the front, or maybe some little dried flowers---By show time at Lakewood, I should have them adorned with all kinds of little treasures. (These were a little hard to photograph--don't forget you can click on the picture to enlarge)

Hey Nancy. Your prisms are gorgeous and you are a genius! I just love to see what you have made next. Been hustling getting ready for the show after having my grandson here for 10 days. He is such a big help, but I was not able to concentrate as too much going on. No problem catching up though, and the time with him was great. grands are grand. Yes, I will pack my camera!
