Surprise surprise today I am not complaining about something. I know many are saddened, but I have to share this awesome thing I found and that I am so doing…I just have to find a ‘where’.
I’m not really the type of person to have a whole bunch of family pictures on a wall, I tried to do it in my bedroom and stopped after three pics cause I thought it was looking too suburban. I have exactly two pictures of Wren in my house which is sort of sad, one in a wee moose shaped frame, the other, a blown up instagram in a 10×10 poster size. There she sits beside me in my office below the sole picture of Finn in a 10×10 instagram format as well. I can’t help it, I am very picky when it comes to photos.
I’ve always loved the idea of taking an awesome photo, not a posed crappy shot, but a really cool image and placing it on a big stretched canvas. Like the one of Clifford with nerd glasses on or him wrapped in a turban photoshopped into a middle eastern market – one of my favs. Something interesting, funny – Hogan syle art if you will. Apparently Clifford the dog is my best subject, sorry kids.
So here was my conundrum, how do I achieve that in an interesting arty way? Well today I have found a solution. ixxi design!
You can impose your own photo, use one of their designs, use a whole bunch of images to make a collage, or use one image in a blown up pixellated treatment that makes a picture of a freakin’ lamb look cool.
The images are clicked together with these little XX’s hence the relevant logo and a strip of sticky tape and voila, modern art that looks amazing!
