Making Instant Art

Don't you just love those white borders on instant photos?  They're so pretty and clean.  Have you ever thought about decorating the borders or even the photo?

I never draw on my Polaroids of roadside stuff.  Those sort of photos I want to leave as is.  I don't want any distraction from the actual image.  Now, if I just snap a random photo, and it doesn't turn out quite right, I'm definitely going to decorate it.

You can do more than doodle on your photos.  Sometimes, I add clippings from magazines.  I especially like them when they look like little ransom notes.

Do you ever do this with your instant photos?
