i am a second year graphic design student. in my program we are assigned a computer in one classroom and that becomes our home we NEVER leave. anyway it has become a tradition for alot of students to try to get the coolest lamp possible for the desk space, i however am quite messy, my creativity always vomits all over my desk, and the floor around it and basicly any other free desk nearby (im sure my fellow craftsters all understand) so i didn't want to take up the precious desk space with a lamp so i figured a hanging lamp would be perfect and then i found this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=231484.0
and just had to have one. i decided i wanted it more colourful and fun than the white ones i've seen so i decided scrapbook paper would be awesome, very colourful and great patterns and great for a design room. i also made one for my 13 year old sister to match the bright colours in her room she loves it and i'm really excited to get back to school to show mine off.
anyway enough words on with the pictures
My Sister's lamp
*EDIT* i didn't take any scale photos but they are about 14 inches across and the lightbulb inside is the energy efficient kind that wont produce much heat so fire hazards are significantly reduced.
anyway i'm super excited with how these turned out and am already planning on making many more i LOVE them and they give off a surprising amount of light (alot more than the pictures let on) so what do you think? comments?
