destroyed.

Inspired by the infamous Busy Bee Lauren's post here, I decided to destroy a disposable camera. I colored the flash red, held a match to the lens until it melted and morphed, and poked some holes in the camera for light leaks. Then I stuck the camera in the freezer for a few days. Here are my results:

Pretty cool, huh? And a very cheap version of getting some awesome vintage looking pictures. My favorites are probably the stop and go lights from the strip, but it's hard to choose. Which ones do you like?

P.S. Ick! Any idea how to remove the borders from the pictures?!

Yes! You can change it in your template. So just go to design and template to get rid of it.

I saw her post on this too! I really want to try it! I like them all!!

I love how the colors came out all grainy! I had no idea that you could do that with a disposable camera.

As I was looking, I was going to say it looks very vintage. Cool idea for something different!
