using iphone pics to create art

I don’t know about you, but my smartphone has pretty much replaced the need for a point-and-shoot camera.  It IS my point-and-shoot camera!  I have often printed images from my iPhone to use in scrapbooking and to pin up on the magnetic chalkboard behind my desk but have never even considered using smartphone images as art.

Until now. :)

The collage is 18×24 and contains 48 images. I love the bits and pieces of everyday life sprinkled with special moments and memories – Friday breakfast dates with my husband over the summer, the marching band performing at a football game, a good cup of hot cocoa, a pretty sunset, time at the pool, vacation snapshots, and random selfies. Reminders of life lived fully.

What makes this piece of art even cooler is the floating frame by Wexel Art.  The print slides behind the acrylic frame and is held up by powerful magnets, making it easy to change out.  In fact it BEGS to be changed regularly.   You could create a family vacation collage or have a themed collage (i.e. pool days, all things autumn) or create a birthday collage featuring the birthday boy/girl – the possibilities are endless!

I will be offering this 18×24 collage in my hope-to-be-open-someday-soon Etsy shop for $50 (with a $5 additional shipping fee) customizable with YOUR images, of course.  (Turnaround would be 1-2 weeks.)  If you are interested in receiving ordering details before the shop opening, just send me a note by clicking on the “contact” button above.  [The 21×27 Wexel Art frame is sold separately, click HERE for details.]
