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!
