Sometimes I wish I was a more handy DIY kind of guy. The one who can create unexpected things for the home. But alas I am not that much a DIY person. However, I also learned that for a DIY project you also need good tools. Then even a DIY nerd like me can actually create something nice. This time my handy DIY tool was the cool instax SHARE SP-3 – a compact printer for instant images taken with your smartphone. Let me show you what I did.
Most of you know that I love crystals, rocks and fossils. I have a little collection in a glass box. However it is not possible to hang it on the wall for display. And then DIY Igor came into play! Why not snap pictures of some of my favorite crystals and rocks with my smartphone and print instant pictures with instax? Thought, done.
I love the result as taking pictures with your smartphone allows you to actually edit the images. The instax SHARE app offers editing features and is super simple and intuitive. Once I finished editing my images, I simply connected the printer via wifi through the instax SHARE app. And then the fun begins: printing your instant images!
For an artsy effect I chose to photograph every crystal, rock and fossil on the same linen cloth and opted for a deep frame with a passepartout. I arranged nine instant images and added – as you might have noticed – one colorful rock for visual interest. The result is fabulous. Well, at least I love it!
Also the placement for my new wall art was quickly found. Above my record player it makes just perfectly sense with all the boho vibes. I am super happy with the final result and truly fascinated by the instax printer. I think I will use it more often as it is a great way to immortalize your pictures taken with the smartphone. So if you are a DIY person or a not-so-DIY person like moi, this instax printer will make it easy and fun to create new decor ideas for your walls at home. Try it. I really like it! You can get more inspiration on their Instagram account if you like. Have fun!
