Decoupage Bottle Lamp - Old Newspapers Scraps

First of all I would like to thank everyone who took part in my giveaway. |The clock has already gone to Sadie. Hopefully she likes the clock.
Back to the begining of my decoupage. How much I like to devise something like that.
Long time ago I was glowing by new, modern and cheap items and what was most important, shiny. But since I got into my passion and work I began to look at the world through the mirror. I have made a phenomenal discovery of what is the handicraft. Therefore my outlook of the surrounding objects also gained another blunt. As far as I can remember one of my lamps was in a pitful condition. Probably I had a few removals and therefore the lampshade had bent and gone completely gray and unattractive. 

My craft project's go was to decorate the lampshade using pieces from the old newspapers.

  The scraps were simply glued with PVA but before I had spent so much time preparing all the necessary materials. I was collecting all sort of newspapers where I could find old pictures of people and old fashioned font. I have ripped small pieces of my favourite images and made it looks older with the flame method. I didn't actually put the paper into the flame. The idea was to use the heat from the flame to burn the paper slowly not to burn it completely.

Now my lamp is used in my crafty room as my extra source of light.
