I can't believe I reached 150 posts. This is from my very first one. It's from a Digi Scrapbook class I took from Jessica Sprague. While my posts have changed a little since June 4, 2009, along with everything else in my life, I think I love blogging more than ever.
Plus as a bonus, I get to share one of my all time favorite projects, and it only cost me about $5.
My mom teaches school and I was lucky enough to get to borrow her opaque projector. After this project, I think I need one of my own. She said their school is giving the teachers new projectors that work with their smart boards, so I'm crossing my fingers I get to keep this one.
These are the images I got from The Graphics Fairy. Just love her site. I merged the regular birdcage and the lantern together in Photoshop to get the image I wanted. Then printed it out and took it to Staples. They made this transparency for $0.99.
I will be doing the candlestick soon and I will definitely share how.
I just set up the projector, got some paint pens for $2 from Wal-mart and went to town. It took about 2 pens to do the whole image. It's in a space that's kind-of dead space behind the door. Origionally I was going to put a mirror there, but I was afraid it would be broken when someone opened the door.
This is perfect.
I see it every morning when I wake up.
I love how it turned out!
Here's a teaser of what we did in the boys room with the projector. I'm waiting for the vinyl from my sweet sis-in-law and I'll post final pics. It's amazing how the projector has opened up so many possibilities for projects. Maybe thats why it's called a PROJECT-OR!
