LYKTA Silhouette

Materials: Lykta Lamp 1 Photocopy/printed transparency (1 A4) tape or stick glue

Description: I love the Lykta lamps but they are too bright for the bedroom. We have a cityscape silhouette theme through the flat so I photocopied a London skyline sunset onto a transparency.

It turns out that two A5 Landscape pictures fit perfectly height and width around the outside of the lampshade.

I cut them the A4 sheet in half and joined the short edges.
