Want to make one too? Probably fairly easy using any photo editing software. I'll show you how I did this using Photoshop Elements.
There are probably several ways to do this, maybe even some a lot simpler. I'm by no means a photoshop expert, I don't even usually edit my photos. If you know of a quicker, easier way to do this feel free to share in the comments! :)
What you will need:
- Your photos
- Foam board (you can find this next to poster paper in Staples)
- Double sided tape
- Adhesive to stick the foam board to your wall
Ok, let's start with the photoshop stuff (my blog is going to cut off part of these photos so ignore that but you won't be able to see the small print on my screen shots otherwise)...
If you wanted you could skip the border entirely and choose to crop your photo in a way that you could just break it up without the border.
On your left toolbar go to the "crop" icon. Watching your rulers isolate the top 8X10 corner. Click on that little green check when you have it.
Now using the "Crop" tool again isolate your second 8X10 by watching your rulers. Save and go back and "Undo Crop" again.
Continue to do this until you have all 9 pieces cropped and saved.
Now, once you have all of your pieces saved, print them or go and have them printed.
I dont have photos of the rest of this process, but it is super simple.
- Take your foam board and cut it into 8X10 pieces, or pieces the same size as your photos.
- Using double sided tape, tape your photos to the foam board.
- Using a level and a ruler attach your photos to your wall using adhesive of your choosing (I used that wall adhesive that is like thin sticky foam). You can find it in the tape section where it says it won't remove the paint from your wall- we'll see! I placed my photos 1 inch apart.
I think this would be really cool also if the photo was turned into that "sketch effect". What do you think?
If you try this out I would love to see your photos!
