Altered Photos featuring Elmer's products!

Do you ever have those random photo prints that didn't quite turn out right? Maybe they're blurry? Or maybe you just want to spice them up with a little more color or pizzazz?



Grab your Elmer's Painters and Gel Pens, and go!!



I used the old fuzzy print like a Paint-by-Number with Elmer's Painters Pens, finding similar colors and blocking out different areas I wanted to "fix."



You can choose to color the whole print, or just pick some focal objects to highlight... Voila!



The Elmer's Gel Pens also work rather well on photo prints. Once they dry, they don't smudge and I especially like how the metallic pens keep their shimmer and it doesn't rub off!



I used the gel pens to accent just the palm trees in this shot!



Happy altering!

These look like gorgeous postcards.  I love what the effect the pens create.

I love altering photos--those gel pens really add a nice touch!

Too bad I don't have any palm trees in our area---but I bet it would work with pine trees! Cheesy

I love printing pictures, but I always end up with so many of them... so this is something I can do with the extras!
