For this project we decided to combine two of our favorite things: photography and traveling. We picked a few photos that we took in our favorite cities that we visited this year (2 from Seattle, 1 from New York and 1 from Muir Beach near San Francisco) and made these giant floating pictures that we think are pretty cool. We liked them so much, in fact, that we're considering adding a couple.
"How did you do it?!" you ask? We'll tell you in 6 easy steps.
1. Choose your photos. This was our original concept:
2. Print your photos. We had our photos printed out as 24" x 36" posters by Posterbrain.com. They were seriously so awesome. The prints came out great and they got to us in 2 days. Plus, they were running a promotion for $17 per poster. So great!
3. Pick up some acrylic sheets and mat board. We got 24" x 24" acrylic from a local plastics manufacturer and poster-size mat boards from a local craft store.
4. Cut the prints and mat boards down to fit the acrylic and sandwich them all together. We used Swiss Clips which give the photos a clean floating look.
