After tiling the image together I glued it into the window which was a terrible idea. I just had to scrape the paper off the back using water from a hose. Lesson learned.
This is Silas getting in the way but isnt he handsome!!
Once I hung the window I wasnt totally satisfied with the results. SO I slept on it.
I painted the white lettering black which gave me an idea... I have this Golden brand Interference Blue acrylic paint that looks almost irridecent or metalic when painted on a black surface. ...
I painted the black lettering and just the Eiffel Tower with the blue interference and the result was amazing. This photo really does not do it justice.
 
I was also thinking about stringing white Christmas lights behind the glass for a romantic ambiance at night.

Using a window I purchased from the ReUse center my initial thought was to glue the photo to the window and seal it, but it didn't work out the way I wanted it to. Using a paint pen I traced the Eiffel Tower and used a stencil to paint the word Paris. I then painted the window white, junked it up a bit and hung it outside on my fence. I love the result.
