Picture This – Scrapbooking

We found this inspired idea on the papersnitch blog (papernstitchblog.com) and decided to try it ourselves and share it with you. Using this special technique you can print your favorite digital images on unique textured art papers, bringing out soft and delicate detailing.

Try experimenting with different types of papers such as mulberry paper, mango paper or unryu, available at arts and craft stores. These art papers will run through common at-home digital printers. Try layering different images and papers, or even add meaningful text, then place your creations in eye-catching, diverse frames. It’s a great way to turn regular family photos into treasured art keepsakes.

Follow these simple steps:

Step 1:
Look for unique printing papers with unusual textures at your local craft or hobby store.

Step 2:
Choose your favorite digital photographs — high contrast photos work best.

Step 3:
Print your photos onto the art papers so they fit in the frames.

Step 4:
Place your prints into frames; choose cool, odd-shaped frames for added interest.
