Yesterday, we discussed the deep, dark secrets of hidden journaling. Today, I want to talk about one of my favorite things--and a huge gift to us scrapbookers! What is this, you may ask? Why, photobooths!
There's something so classic about a photobooth. Whether it's black and white or in color, one person alone or twelve squashed together, pleasant smiles or disgusting faces, photobooths are so much fun! Today, I'm going to show you a few ways to use photobooths on your pages. Some of them actually came from photobooths, and others are a bit more tricky!
My Ella friend Jennifer Larson created a fun, whimsical layout with photobooth images:
Here's what Jennifer had to say about her layout:
I had these goofy mustaches, so I passed them around and took some photos. I resized them to fit in these GCD photo booth chipboards. I trimmed the photos, adhered them to the back of the chipboard, then added a piece of paper to the back so they'd stay put and adhered them to the page. Since it was a comical experience, the comedic photo booth shots worked well for it!
I love that Jennifer used chipboard to create these photobooth strips--she totally could have fooled me!
Another Ella friend of mine, Valerie Mangan, also took a stab at this challenge:
I love the funny faces in the photos, and the way Valerie's journaling puts it right into context! Photobooths can be a wonderful day to focus on the everyday funny aspects of life.
Here's Valerie's description of her process:
There are so many fun and easy ways to achieve the look of photo booth photos. My favorite by far is the Pocket Booth app for iPhone. For only 99 cents you get amazing vintage looking results that are very easy to upload to a photo editing program for printing. So much crafty potential with these fun photo strips! I love the strong vertical element they add to my page.
Another sneeaky photobooth on here! Reason #455645666 why I need an iphone (now someone just needs to convince my husband....)
Finally, I made my own effort at a photobooth layout:
For this layout, I used good old fashioned cardstock to create a "photobooth" out of two photos I had on hand. Repeating the same image with the same background helps create a photobooth effect.
So there you have it! Three photobooth layouts, and none of them actually from photobooths! Go figure:)
