Acrylic/plastic at Just for Fun

Well when I first saw this I thought I would be missing a challenge at Just for Fun as my experiments with both of these materials aren't very good:(  I don't like 'chickening out' and suddenly an idea came to me along the stained glass window route.

This is double glazed stained glass lol--the picture was printed onto paper and also onto acrylic then both of them coloured the same.
I stuck the paper circle onto a card shape and then raised the acrylic one above it with silicone glue

This is hopefully a better view of what I mean :)I propped up the finished product at one side so you can see the two layers. The corners and flowers cover up the silicone blobs.

While I was making this I had another idea which is really fun-well me and my hubby have had a play with it lol.

I made a sort of Kaleidoscope with the same type of circles and a brad

you need to leave an acrylic tab on the circle and add one to the paper and card one as well-indicated with the fingers cause they didn't show up well on the picture. Just add a brad to the centre so the circles can move freely.

move the tabs anywhere you like to get different pictures

I am wondering what it would look like with two different images used in the same way.

Great challenge as ever at Just for Fun and also wonderful samples for inspiration
