i’ve really been enjoying instagram these days. its my go-to social media outlet (i’ve pretty much abandoned facebook). i feel like my little instagram cirlce is so much more low-key and fun to share silly or humdrum family pics than facebook where i’m sure my hundreds of “friends” are uninterested.
a couple weeks ago i set out to explore ways to print some of my favorite instagrams. for standard 4″ square prints, printstagram seemed the most straightforward. i got 24 squares for $12. fine, tho i did not enjoy paying for shipping. i looked everywhere for a free shipping promo code, but came up empty handed. with all the free shipping on furniture and most any order anywhere over $50, i am bothered spending $ on a 4″ square envelope, i can’t help it. fedex delivered the prints a week later (you have to be home for the delivery – so they leave one of those sticky notes on your door you have to sign… not a big deal, but doesn’t seem necessary, you know?). i don’t know why i am sounding all disgruntled about prinstagram.. the service was perfectly fine – easy and i got exactly what i expected.
this is a long-winded intro to my little project involving the 2 pop-out image squares (weird dog and truck with eyes) from my $11.99 kohls collage kit.
i’m going to use the 2 squares and 3 frames separately and not as intended for this collage formation. i turned the squares into instragram art for dane’s room in two easy steps.
paint white (i used the benjamin moore matte white that mike uses on trim).
(after paint dries) cover in mod podge, stick photo in the middle, and cover in mod podge again.
these will go in dane’s room along side another little project in the pipeline.
ps. happy valentines day. for the first time ever, i have THREE valentines. boy am i lucky.
