Hi All! Sorry I’ve been M.I.A…I can’t believe how quickly time has passed from Thanksgiving to just 8 days before Christmas! Yikes! Hopefully, many of you have finished Christmas shopping and are finally able to enjoy all the fun this season has to offer.
As I opened beautiful Christmas cards these past weeks from family, friends and clients, I wondered if you did anything else with them after designing your cards? Today’s Thursday Pic Tip may help you plan for an easy little home revamp with the recent photos you’ve taken. In my Oh Snap! Workshop I show samples and share tips on making this process as easy as possible, but I’m sharing some with you here today! Yay!
My first suggestion is to decide where and how you want to display your photos. Framed or canvas? If this is all new to you, I highly recommend framed prints because printing is inexpensive and there’s less of a commitment to keep a photo hanging if you decide you don’t like it or want to change it often.
Second, chose your frames or canvas sizes and plan for your collage in the room you’ve decided in. Keep it simple with 3 or 5 frames to fill and start with the largest frame in the middle to keep the balance of smaller frames on each side.
Last, choose the images from your recent set of photos to fill the frames.
In the end, you will find a great, cohesive story of fun memories from that photo session. As the years go by and you update your photos, all you have to do is replace them with images of the same size and pop them in the frame. If you’ve chosen canvases, you would just order the same sizes and hang as before.
Below are samples of framed and canvased images set in a living room.
