    I have done this by laminating photos (make sure you leave a bit of sealed border when you trim) and adding water, glitter and glycerin (get it at a drugstore – it helps suspend the glitter) for a snow globe effect. Used hot glue to attach the photos to the lid. Wide mouth jars are key. Plumbers tape around the threads to ensure a tight seal. May try oil next time……
