One of the things I've been particularly bad about in the past is finding creative things to do with pictures we take or videos of our lives. I end up with gigabites of unused media, although it is fun to look back every now and again. Tracy and I were walking the streets a couple of weeks ago and I saw what looked like the perfect canvas. It's just particle board on a wooden frame, which almost looks like a stretched canvas. I thought it would be a perfect surface to decoupage and hang on the wall.
The hard part was figuring out what to put on it. For the past 2 weeks, it's been used as a barrier to keep Kitty out of certain areas of the apartment, then Tracy challenged me to put some photography to work.
I started with a copy of La Vanguardia that I purchase for 1,20€ and covered the whole surface.
Then I combed through our pictures and printed photos of our time in Barcelona. I printed until I ran out of ink.
Here is the final product…so far.
We intend to continue adding photos as we make more memories and buy more ink.
