I’m sure you have all seen artwork out there in blog-land that use photographs of object to spell out a word. So here’s my attempt to come up with some awesome artwork for my boys’ bedroom.
As you can tell, dirt bikes are my boys’ hobby! I took a lot of close-up photographs of their bikes and safety gear. Then I used Picnik.com to crop and edit photos. (Love this site!) Be patient with this process. I really wanted to foot peg to be the “U” but in the end it became the “H”. Same with the letter “E”. When I took that photo I was thinking letter “H”. Go figure….. Stay flexible and you will come up with something great!
Each letter is printed to a individual 4x6. I purchased the frames from Amazon. Learn from me…. Find your frame FIRST. I thought I would go to the local craft store and pick this frame up in 5 minutes. With so many samples of this being done in bloggy blog land, really they had to be all over! Right? NO WAY!!! I went all over town with no luck. I love shopping online. Why didn’t I think to go to Amazon in the first place? Would have saved me 2 months looking. Seriously, I had this planned for Christmas gifts and they ended up being Valentine’s Day gifts. lol
I wanted to frame each letter separately instead of compositing the photos together to be one big print. Reason? To keep cost down. I can print my own 4x6 prints. Plus, I like the way the black frame separates each letter and I didn’t need to have a custom mat or frame made to achieve this look!!!
In the end, the boys loved them! Give it try….. and don’t forget to share your photos.
