This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and timeshel, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #timeshelprints http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV Find our full disclosure here.
Many of you that have been hanging with us here at NellieBellie for a long time know that a year and a half back (or so) we moved from a big home in the country to a rental apartment in a historic town outside of Minneapolis, MN. We truly do love this new life. One of my new challenges has been turning our rental apartment into a home. I never realized how much I took for granted my ability to paint and drill holes in the wall whenever I wanted. With this apartment, I miss painting. And gosh darn, I miss drilling holes in the wall! All you renters...you hear me!
This photo display only requires 1 nail hole because the canvas is very light. 1 nail hole for 30 photo's...win!!
Anyhoo...I desperately wanted a way to put the spotlight on my fantastic prints from Instagram that timeshel prints and sends me. They send me 30 images each month (I get to pick) that arrive in a great little storage case just waiting to be admired and shown off. I have the $14.95 a month service, but they also have a great $5.95 option with 10 photos a month that come in a cute envelope. This service is only available for iOs in the Apple Store.
The timeshel app makes it really easy to take the photos I take on my phone and transform them into a focal point in my home, simply by telling the app which of my camera roll photos I want sent to me. I select my 30, and they are delivered as high quality prints. Win!
Tip: Apply the same filter (I use Afterlight on my Iphone for filters and photo editing) to each of the photos. This will give you a uniform, artsy look for your display. I'm a big fan of the vintage filters.
- 2' by 4' canvas (easily found at a craft store. Watch for sales to keep this cost down!)
- 30 binder clips
- super glue (or equal adhesive)
- timeshel photos
- optional: craft paint and brush
- Put your images into the clips (so that you have a better visual of the finished product) and lay out your images and clips how you want them to be for your finished photo board. I went 4 across and used only 28 of the 30 images that came in my timeshel).
- (below) Remove the image prior to glueing on the binder (believe me, you might accidentally glue the image to the canvas--or something?), set the binder aside, apply glue to the canvas where you want the binder to lie, and press the binder back into the glue, hold in place for about 1 minute.
Apply a stroke of craft paint along the edge of the canvas. I like this because it gives a nice finished look instead of looking like I just stuck a canvas on the wall (well, I kinda did, didn't I.). It only takes a few minutes with a sponge brush.
P.S. Isn't my family the cutest!
I don't know what that 3 tiered stand is intended for, but it currently houses our games. And that lampshade? That lampshade. Isn't it just too much! I adore it. I picked up those curtains at IKEA (because I know I'll get questions) and the cabinet is an IKEA hack that I"ll have more on at a later time. Oh, yes. Yes, that is a bear skull. Look closely, you'll see it. This girl is, after all, from MN and married to a WI boy.
