Altered Photo Challenge

Ever have just the right photo but the colors well…did not go with any cute paper you picked out? This has happened to me how many time I can’t count. We have a very maroon looking couch. Love my couch, however if you were to be photographed by it or on it…it’s hard to find fun papers to go.

So my solution: I alter the photo’s to either black and white or sepia.

Leading into my challenge for the week:
Create a layout where your photo’s are altered to a different finish.

(I know at some photo finishers even options with even setting a certain color hue to your pics, like blue, green, pink ect….)

Be sure to upload your lo to the challenge gallery and link back to the challenge thread in the forum!
Have fun! I can’t wait to see your layouts!

My challenge to you this month is all about collages!

I have found using collages are an easy and fast way to scrapping my photos!
You can download the templates from Scrapbooks ETC or most photo finishers even have the option to create collages, just pick the photos and they arrange them for me, all I have to do is just hit print. Or you can always make your own collage by cropping photos to fit.

Upload your layout into the October DT Challenge gallery by midnight PST on October 31st and post a link in the forum.

So get your creative juices flowing, I look forward to seeing your layouts!

(My example:an 8 x 10 collage was created by my photo finisher’s program, layout created using Moxxie’s Halloween Collection)
