Creatively Using Prints

Hello

P1020018

Today’s post is one I’ve been excited about for weeks! I will be showing you all the different uses there are for prints! The ones in my pictures are some beautiful ones from Printspiring.ย There are so many things you can do with prints and I honestly had no idea that they’re so easy to re-size and use. (Cut me some slack, it was my first time buying prints).

Here are a few snaps of all the different waysย I used mine:

Greeting cards

Even although you can buy greeting cards in the online store, I used my print, re-sized it so that it was about A6 size and printed it. They make great cards for anyone creative and even for people who are not.The quotes are super inspiring too!

Mood Board Inspiration

I love collecting interesting little bits and pieces for my mood board such as quotes off Pinterest, photographs, clothing tags and my own handscripted work. This print was the perfect addition to all of that and the vibrant colours look great!

Foward Planning Inspiration

You can print them out small and use them in planners and calendars like I did, below.They are great just to inspire you and add some colour to you planner.

Wall Print

And of course, their original purpose, they look so beautiful framed. You can put a frame virtually anywhere, so where you choose to put yours isย entirely up to you! I left mine hanging on the wall of my bedroom and I love seeing it there. It brings a fresh burst of inspiration, art and colour into my space.

DIY Bamboo Quote Frame

I have twoย fun DIYs for you.I think that sometimes, the smaller prints can get ‘drowned’ by the rest of the items surrounding it, so here’s a quick idea for when you want to get something on its own.

You will need: scissors, A6 prints, mini pegs, bamboo chopsticks and string.
P1020044
Step 1: Start by tying the chopsticks together using string. Make sure they are secure.

Your frame should look something like this

Step 2: Tie another piece of string tautly across the frame. ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  Step 3: Peg the print of your choice onto the string.

Lastly, find a place for your frame. I put mine on my desk. As you can see, my mood board is pretty full!

Fabric Wall Hanging

This next DIY is so simple but it looks beautiful!

P1020060
You will need: print printed onto canvas, chopsticks, glue, mini pegs, string/twine
P1020062
Step 1: Apply glue to about one cm of the print and wrap it around the chopstick
P1020065
Step 2: Leave it to dry. Next tie string the the ends of the chopstick that is on the top of the print
P1020069
Voila! Isn’tย it pretty?

You can use fabric tape or cold glue too, depending on how thick your material is. My canvas material was quite thick, so I had to use craft glue instead of tape. The texture is so great on the canvas material too!

I hope you have come to see how versatile prints are! I highly reccomend Printspiring prints. They are so colourful, fun and inspirational and are of high quality.

I had a lot of fun using them and they’re hand painted too which makes them even more pretty.

Enjoy the holidays, everyone!
