Are you looking for an inexpensive way to dress up your home? Wall art is often expensive, and doesn’t really compliment your home décor. With PicsToPrint photo book software for print shops, you can create truly unique and personal wall art, that’s guaranteed to fit in your home and express your personality. Also, you can customize the size of your art to fit unusual areas and feature the architecture of your living space. Follow these easy steps to create wall art.
1: Choose a photo. Select a high-resolution digital photo that you like. You can edit the photo to have a more interesting composition, or try converting it to black-and-white or sepia tones for a vintage feel.
2: Select a background pattern. You can choose from the PicsToPrint huge graphics library, or get creative and make your own by scanning vintage paper or wallpaper patterns. Or scan a memento from your home – a plane or concert ticket, a restaurant menu or wine label can all make for visually compelling backgrounds.
3: Layer in other graphic elements. Add a second photo, or images over the top. Layering in images of leaves and flowers can reinforce color themes and add visual interest. You could even add text.
4: Arrange all your elements in a pleasing composition. For selecting matching colors, remember that it’s best to use warm colors with warm colors, and cool colors with cool. Be mindful of the color scheme of the room where you intend to hang your art. Explore complimentary colors on the color wheel. When laying out your art, remember the Rule of Thirds; that it’s best to offset your composition in thirds rather than in the middle, either vertically or horizontally. And note that strong horizontal lines are restful, while strong diagonals are full of energy.
5: Save your finished composition within PicsToPrint, then send the finished file to your PicsToPrint-enabled local print shop. Ask if they can produce the finished image on canvas or textured paper, which can add a lot of interest to the finished piece.
6: Hang your art! The finished piece can be framed in a frame from the craft store, or have it done professionally at a frame shop. Or you can get creative and reuse a thrift store frame, an old window, or layer your work over a mirror. Be mindful that, if your art will be hung in direct sunlight, you may want to invest in UV protective glass to keep the colors from fading over time.
Following these simple steps and using PicsToPrint photo book software for labs will help you create truly unique wall art for your home, that is just the right size and color palette to compliment your décor. Furthermore, customized wall art shows off your personality and your creativity to your guests. And it’s so easy and inexpensive with PicsToPrint!
