Cocoa Daily Prompt - 5/13 - OLD photos

Postby helpmeronda » May 13th, '09, 9:39 am

OLD PHOTOS

I don't know about you but I have boxes of older photos. I am always grabbing my more recent photos because I feel I have become a better photographer. If I could go back I would probably change the shot entirely. But I can't.. and sometimes you just have to work with what you have. So my prompt for you today is to scrap those older photos. The ones that while hold dear memories but aren't always the prettiest pictures.

Image

I have done that quite a bit this month & am planning on to continue scrapping at least one old photo with each new kit.

Can't wait to see your pages!

It is a fantastic idea Ronda...& a super L.O too. Love how you used the lace paper as a mask ;)
Only yesterday I was looking through some of my pre-kids...pre-scrappy photos taken with my 35mm point 'n shoot, wondering how & when I'd ever scrap them. Well now's my chance hey!
Thanks for the prompt!

I love this prompt. (and your LO too :) )

When my Grandad died last year (my Nan had died a few years previous) I got given their whole box of photos as everyone in the family knows how much I cherish them. The box sits here under my desk, but I haven't delved in for quite some time to scrap from them.....think maybe it's time again :)

Nice catch kim. Now I can't wait to use that paper since it has been misted! See that's what I am talking about. I have tons of old photos & they sit on my shelf looking lonely!

Can't wait to see what you do!

So sorry for your loss lisa

I think this is a great time to delve, treasure the memories, add your thoughts, & give some time to "scrap therapy"

Love the prompt and the LO Ronda!

Can't wait to play. I love those old photos.. wish I had more of them to play with -- like really baby, child hood pics that have yellowed out through the years!! :)

Looking forward to seeing everyone's LOs.
Sue :)

I used one of my old school pictures:

I got a horrible flash on the actual picture, but I wasn't feeling steady enough this morning to take a picture without a flash :)

I've ended up scrapping a photo of my childhood bestfriend.....Bonnie.
We were bestfriends/sisters from just 2months old until she left us when we were 17.
It feels really good to finally have her in my album now :)

Thanks Ronda x

Lisa your LO rocks!!!
Here is my take, I scrapped a picture from a Halloween a loooong time ago!! I am dressed like little red riding hood and I am with my mum!!! Must have been 4 years old or younger!! I scraplifted a design from Helena but I think I kind of overdid it with the embellies and lost my focus on the pic!!! O0 O0

OK so I did it....I used some happy snap pic's...no retouching no colour correction...straight as they came from the photo developer. Do you know how hard it was using photos that I couldn't correct....I was chewing my nails as I stuck them down. Yikes....I am seriously crazy! The fact the untouched pics un-glue me so badly hahahaha! I need help!

I decided to give my Invisibles a try too, after all the fabulous tips 'n tricks from the other DT girls shown in this link. I inked, painted & sprayed for colour...it was such fun. After it was dry, I then cut it into a shape for variety & layered & stitched & roughened & tied. I LOVED this project!! The cool flower is from Pink Paislee!

If you are wondering how I wrote on the Invisibles....I used a Photo signature pen from Zig...they write on anything ;) ;)
