Christmas/New Year's Eve 2011 (I missed the New Year's countdown because I was busy working on this lift, haha): Damn you Polaroid peel apart that wouldn't really stick to the watercolour paper, damn you!!!
It all seemed so easy in the beginning- far too easy. I had no troubles whatsoever peeling the different layers apart and it all seemed to stick at first- but when the watercolour paper started drying the whole thing started to crack and I spent 3 DAYS (!!!) repeating the whole process over and over again just to save as much of the shot as I could (I tried another peel-apart with a different polaroid but the second stuck even less to the paper, so there's no use uploading the second wasted Polaroid). I'm keeping this one as a proof of my all-enduring patience ;) Update: Unfortunately, the picture started to crack even more due to the scan and after having redone it a millions of time (sort of), the edges started rolling up. I tried to save it by using spraying adhesive but it was too late and I couldn't save it. At least I have the scan left, although the touch of the original was really lovely due the watercolour paper :(This photo was shot on film. Taken by laurasulilly with a Polaroid SX-70 loaded with Polaroid TZ Artistic film in Hamburg, Germany.
