Dealing with less-than-ideal photos...



It's inevitable that as scrapbookers, we sometimes have to deal with less-than-ideal photos. Like the photos of my dad with his mum. The photos that were printed at the photo shop came out really dull (damn stupid freebie coupon.. now I have a stack of 50 similarly dull photos that I have been using for my layouts...I still have a lot more to go!) but since I don't like to waste stuff, I went ahead and used them.


I cut out the silhouette of one of them and placed it next to the other photo. I covered the background of the photo with some gold Stickles to "enliven" the photos and match the gold of the CNY piggy decorations. I also added some bright and fun embellishments to "frame" the photos and add more interest.


And of course, I covered my background with a large pig embellishment. :)

What about you? How do you deal with less-than-ideal photos?

You did such a great job with this that the less-than-ideal photo totally works. I'm super impressed with how you incorporated such a giant pig and made it look fantastic.

Clever ideas on your layout. Yip those dull/bad photos also need to get scrapped as it's the memories that count. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Let's Get Sketchy.
