Cut and Stick Your Negatives


Try cutting up your negatives and sticking them back together!

I took some old negatives and simply cut into them and then stuck them back together with tape. Once I had done this I just scanned them back in. The tape creates some nice line and texture and the cuts create hard lines and patterns. Try to be creative with the cuts making them fit in with the picture or try cutting and sticking two completely different negative together.

As always, enjoy!

    Great idea! It's fresh, rebelious and 100% analog. It really opens new horizons.
