This pic of Brendan was the first picture I ever did in the “black & white with a colored object” style. I love doing these and I love how they turn out! 😀 One thing about them- the picture has to lend itself to this method. Many times I have taken pictures with the intent of doing this with them but they didn’t work out right.
We just bought our Christmas cards for this year- we got a fabulous deal on them at Big Lots. They are white frames that you slide a picture into and the border around the picture is silver snowflakes. They are perfect for black and white photos and I’m am trying to think of something the kids can each hold that I can leave in color. Something seasonal. Any ideas?
I think that Christmas tree bulbs would be awesome in color and the rest in B&W. Or stockings left red…or a santa hat. I am sure you will come up with something great.
Here are a few ideas of items the boys could hold for your christmas card idea:
*christmas tree balls (the large round ones you hang on the tree)
*or what if you had them wear santa hats…
Just some thoughts. I’m sure you’ll find something great!
How about some big plastic snowflakes to go with the border theme? I dunno…maybe with a red bow tied on top that they hold, that you could color in?
