I’ve been reading a lot recently about the importance of actually printing our photos. Most of us have a hard-drive full of pictures, but very few tangible copies of them. Aside from the pleasure of surrounding ourselves with our own pictures, having prints of our photos is another line of defence if (God forbid) we lose the digital copies.
So Last week I decided to get a few of them printed. When they arrived in the post I stuck a load of them up around my desk and decided to put the others in a frame.
This Umbra Gridart frame is from Red Candy and takes photos that are 4×4 inches, it would be brilliant for instagram pics, but also works well with standard 4×6 inches prints, providing the image has enough space to allow trimming.
If you don’t already have a paper guillotine and plan on doing anything like this, buy one! Seriously, it’s one of the most useful things I ever bought and scissors do not do the same job, no matter how neatly you cut.
Once trimmed, I laymy photos out on the sheet that came with the frame and moved them around until I got a layout I was happy with….
I used Pritt Stick to glue them in place, mostly because it was the only thing I could lay my hands on, but actually it’s perfect for this job, because it’s easy to peel off and reposition the images if you need to.
And here is the finished result… I love it! Theo is having such fun pointing out all his family members and I love the modern contemporary look of frame.
Thank you Red Candy for another great bit of homeware!
