Fan Cutouts as Photocrafting

Fans still fill stadiums and arenas even though they can’t attend in person.

I get a kick out of seeing the cardboard cutouts of people’s faces in the stands when we watch athletic games these days. It seems like a nice reminder that fans do exist for the players, and it’s a creative response to the covid rules that limit crowds. Plus, our college athlete granddaughter says it’s “cool to have them.” But recently I realized that I’m seeing photocrafting in action! How do those photos get there anyway? Turns out it’s not too difficult for seasoned photocrafters, even newbies!

It was a beautiful day so naturally I took a few pictures of the vineyard and the process. When I came upon the wine tote offered by Zazzle, I knew immediately what I wanted to do. What could be more perfect than a wine tote with pictures of the vineyard itself?

Five Favorites: Involving Kids with Photocrafting

Everyone’s home now and that Includes kids of all ages. Seems like a good time to think about how the younger ones especially might get involved in photocrafting? Maybe make something for them; maybe help them create something to give to someone else (it’s hard not to see friends and family in person!); maybe use their artwork as the photo! We’ll list five of our favorite ideas, some new and some based on photo projects we’ve already shown you. Hope you’ll add some ideas of your own in our Comments or on our Facebook page Photocrafting Fun.
