I bought this window with the plan to , like others, take some black and white photos and put them in the panes as frames.  My husband came up with a plan to print out our photos on window cling paper and then put them on the pane instead of behind.  I was so excited with how it turned out.  When the light hits it at an angle you can see the shadow of the photo on the wall... that is a cool effect.  Though I haven't done it I also thought it might be a be interesting in an actual window... photos from both sides.  Just a little spin on what others like http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=331519.0 have done.  Hope you like it.

It has a wonderfully nostalgic feel to it. I really like the presentation.

Would they fade on a window that was exposed to the sunlight?

Very cool!  I like the nostalgic look, too!  Where do you get window cling film for printers?  And is it fussy going thru the printer?

Thanks!  I'm not sure if they would fade or not.  The paper is intended for inkjet printers and for placing on car windows so I would think it would be okay for awhile but not sure about over a long period of time.  This particular one is about 4 years old and it has done fine but has not been in direct sunlight.  The great thing about it is they can just be pulled off and replaced if they do fade or if you get tired of them.  Because they cling, they stay perfectly but are truly temporary. 
When I bought this paper it was easy to find at places like Office Depot or Office Max.  We had it sitting for about a year or so before my husband did this and when we went back to get more to make gifts we couldn't find it.  I did a search and found it online and have since found it at Michael's.  At our Michael's it is with the sign making items(posterboard, precut sticky letters, etc).  Hope that helps!

I really like this implementation - turned out very nice! I love the idea of the photo shadows too!

This is fantastic! I have a couple old windows that I've been planning to do the picture thing to...and this is even better! I think if I find the paper, it would be cool to be able to change up the photo's every so often! Great idea! Thanks for the inspiration! Smiley
