Wish You Were Here

Our new challenge starts today at The East Wind FB Group page with the theme of "I've Been Framed" (add a frame or make it look like a Polaroid).  I remember my first Polaroid camera.  My Daddy won a "Swinger" at a golf tournament and gave it to me.  It was black and white (and happened to take only b&w photos, too).  You had to coat them with some goo after they developed or they'd get all streaky and washed out.  I thought it was pretty hot stuff.  I even remember the jingle on the tv commercial.  Does anybody else? Is anybody out there even close to my vintage?  Didn't think so. Okay, I digress. 

I did obviously go the Polaroid route using the beautiful "Hybiscus" (Unky's spelling, not mine.  LOL) and added the sentiment to the bottom of the "photograph". It's a burlap canvas to which I've added papers from the Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue, some scraps that  just happened to be laying on my table and a palm tree from JoLee's.

Here's a closeup of the beautiful "Hybiscus".  She's colored with Copics with hair and shading detail from Prismaclor pencils.  This reminds me of some tropical travel of my own.  Wish I were there.

 Come join the fun!
