Picture Book . . . Na, na, na, na, na na . . .

"Picture book, pictures of your mama, taken by your papa a long time ago. Picture book, of people with each other, to prove they love each other a long ago. Na, na, na, na, na na . . ."

I don't know if you know or remember that tune by the Kinks, but doing this project it kind of stuck in my head! And on that note, I may not be a great singer, but I am a repurpose kind of gal. When I found these I knew I needed them, and how great a gift would they be for a photographer! I looked them up on EBAY and they called them film holders. The ones I found on there aren't quite cool as these are, but half the fun is the hunt!

These what I had to I start with. The pictures were cut down to fit.

The "exposed" piece was removed and the picture inserted.

The "exposed" piece was then reinserted to hold the picture in place.

I love playing with the color on pictures. This was done in a black/white color, with just the color blue coming through. Gives it a vintage effect.

These turned out to be a great way to save wonderful memories of special times with friend

My friend has a digital picture frame but it's still not as good as the real thing. Cute project overall.
