Polaroids are a huge trend at the moment with manufactures taking it on board and turning this photo frame into a super cool accent. Leeann loves this new trend and knows that you can create this look without having to actually have a Polaroid camera. Leeann took inspiration from both Nina and Piradee (you can see their pages below) and created her own Polaroid frames and accents. Leeann also gave the frames a little extra texture by embossing the cardstock. The options are endless and you really can make them your own.
Leeann has used a mixed of Amy Tangerine papers and washi tapes along with some hambly overlays and rub-on’s.
The polaroid trend reminded Danielle of some childhood photos her mum took. These were originally polaroids, but the polaroid frame had been cropped out when they were scanned. Danielle used a free polaroid frame download set and printed the images out with this faux polaroid frame. Printing on plain cardboard added to the grainy film feel, and the photographic theme is echoed in the patterned paper polaroid frame placed in the background.
A Hambly overlay was partially transferred to the Pink Paislee background paper using the acetate technique, with the camera pattern adding to the polaroid theme even more! Danielle also chose to journal 'on trend', reflecting on her gratitude for her mum's regular happy snapping throughout her childhood.
Louise N recently spent the weekend interstate with these two fabulous creatives teaching at a craft fair! Sherry [to the right in picture] had a funky little polaroid camera [that Louise so so lusted after LOL :)]. Whilst at the fair they snapped a few fun shots, Louise got to keep the out takes LOL :). Louise has showcased her photo quite simply, with a 'splatty' gesso and Tattered Angels Chalkboard Glimmer Mist effect and some simple machine stitching.
Sharmaine Krujiver has created this awesome page both about a polaroid camera and featuring the polaroid embellishments of the trend. Even the background paper has a range of cameras on it to continue the photographic theme!
The inimitable Martha Bonneau has shared with us a digital page she created using polaroid frames.
Polish scrapbooker Jaszmurka uses a lot of polaroid, instagram and hipstamatic prints in her inspiring range of work. Here are a few of her pages, thank you for sharing Jaszmurka!
Piradee has used some of the new Dear Lizzy – Neopolitan pattern paper which has funky Polaroid accents all over it. Thank so much for letting us share your page.
We would like to thank Nina Ostermann for letting us share this page with you. We love the Polaroid photos used. And the Polaroid accent which highlights the photos.
Finally, this beautiful mini album was created by fabulously arty Caroline Rondel. Caroline has incorporated polaroid photos of her 'everyday' so beautifully and artfully in to a mini album. Isn't it just glorious!!! thank you so very much Caroline :)
