DIY Photo Wall Art: Live Laugh Photograph

 DIY Photo Wall Art: Live Laugh Photograph has been made possible by Shutterfly and Looksi Square.

A bunch of us bloggers were offered some free prints by Shutterfly and Looksi Square in exchange for coming up with ways to display the photos. I had a series of photos I took at a studio, so I was thrilled to get a chance to display them.

For the longest time I wanted to make this Live Laugh Photograph text, making out the letters with several photos. That would have required more photos AND more wall space, to I was agonizing over what to do. A couple days ago I found this pin with a collage from, and thought "Of course! I'll make the photos into letters!". Black and White Delight doesn't seem to exist anymore, but I'm glad I found the pin. So I finally got to work:

How to:

I cut out letters from parchment paper, which I then tried on top of different photos so I could see which photos would fit which letters the best.

I cut out the photos according to my parchment paper models.

I attached the photos on the wall with some mounting putty.


PS: You can see the photos from the shoot with Lizzie in my photo blog.

Looksi and Shutterfly have invited me to participate in a creative brand collaboration.  I have been provided with product compensation for this post, but all opinions are my own.
