Art To Frames: My Source For Framing.

Last week I wrote about some of my favorite digital download sources, and so many of you asked about framing!  I’ve used a few framing companies, but I thought I’d share one of my favorites, and how it worked.

I used Art To Frames for my most recent art purchases because I’ve used them before and really love their frames. Here’s what I did:

Step 1:

Purchase the art download and save it.

Step 2:

Go to Art To Frame’s website and start browsing.  They have tons of selections!

Step 3:

Choose the frame, glass, matting..etc

Step 4:

Upload the art and they will print and frame it for you.  Sit back, relax, and wait for it to come in the mail.  It’s that easy.  (same with family photos, or anything you want printed)

I chose the muted glow picture frame for these.

Here’s a close up, the frame is beautiful..

That’s the process if you want them to print it for you, however, I have ordered a frame solo before too.  I had some fine art I needed to frame.

I’ll probably be back for more when I do my family photo wall down the road, and my kid’s art wall too!  I snagged you guys a 15% discount code that lasts a week (Until January 20, 2020).  Use Pretty15 at checkout!  Now go get crazy and enjoy! 🙂

My Top 7 Sources For Digital Downloadable Art

The number one thing I have consistently been asked about on my Instagram account is, “Where did you get that art?”  First of all, there is a special place in my heart for original art pieces.  Unfortunately my bank account cannot keep up with my love for most art, and digital downloads have been my affordable alternative.  It has taken me a LONG time to find all the pieces in my home, and I’m excited to share some of my favorite finds as a result of months of internet searches.  You are so welcome.

Without further ado, below are the 7 shops I have downloads from in my home.

(Please excuse the glare and the amateur photos)

1. Echo Shop

You can find them on Etsy here.  I personally have two of their pieces in my home.  Both of these pieces are framed by Framebridge.

**TIP: You can pick whatever company you’d like, however, I’ll be sharing the 3 frame companies I’ve used for all the art in my home.  It’s definitely cheaper to print it yourself (like at Staples, Shutterfly, or any other print shop), but I personally like the convenience of having it printed and framed for me.  It also looks way more professional–I HIGHLY recommend.

The two pieces I have are:

Altered Portrait Vintage Painting Bohemian

The glare is tough…here’s another angle…

Altered Vintage Portrait Eclectic

2. Chaos And Wonder Design

This shop can be found here.  All these were framed by Frame It Easy.

Collage Surreal Art Portrait

These used to be together on my dot wall, but I now have them separated.  However, they are beautiful together, and they come as a set.  Below is the first one that’s on my new gallery wall..

And here’s his partner that still doesn’t have a home yet..

3. SMUZI

I’ve used this shop the most, you can find them here.  I’ve used them for a ton of pieces in my old apartment, and you can find the link to that blog post here (there are some good ones there, be sure to check it out).  I used Frame It Easy for all these.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Jack Nicholson

He is one of my favorites, and definitely my most popular piece.  He is currently off the wall temporarily until I find him a home.

This one is currently on my kitchen counter.

You can find her shop here. Below is the piece I have in my bedroom.  This was framed by Framebridge.

5. Belle Art Prints

You can find her shop here.  I had this framed at Frame It Easy.

The Goldfnch Print

6. BFF Print Shop

You can check their website out here.  I have two prints from them, and both are framed by Art To Frames.  Do me a favor and go to their website for a better picture.  There is so much glare from the windows behind me that no matter how close I get, you can’t really appreciate the texture that these prints offer.

The picture on the left is the Guitar Player, and the one on the right is the Man Studying.

7. Juniper Print Shop

Last but not least, you can find their shop here.  The print below is framed by Art to Frames.

Liza Pruitt Art Collective, My Humble Review.

The art in my home is probably the most asked about question I get on Instagram.    And while I would never claim to be an art connoisseur, I’ve definitely had so much fun selecting the art pieces in my new home.  I see art as another way to express myself in my home, and I’m super picky what I put up on my walls.  I love finding new artists and the stories behind each piece.

I recently found Liza Pruitt’s art collective on Instagram.  She’s so fun to follow because she’s always sharing previews of new collections in her stories.  What’s neat about her art collective is she has 20 artists with a variety of styles.

I recently purchased this art piece (by Christen B Yates) for my office, and I LOVE it.

It’s sitting on my shelves as you walk into my office, and I couldn’t be happier with it.

As always, thanks for being here!

Love,

Deema

Posters, But Like, For Adults (DIY)

You know how when you were a kid you had posters all over your wall and you thought it was the hottest thing ever?  That cheap wrinkled piece of paper was literally what made your room slightly more impressive than the kid from down the street.  But as an adult, it’s pretty tough to find some high quality wall decor that’s comparable at $5 or less.  Unfortunately, most of the ones I love, are super expensive.  And, well, I HATE paying full price for anything.  So how did I get the adult version of posters in my home for super cheap?  I totally have a DIY cheap solution for you in 4 simple steps.

**Bonus canvass option at the end, that costs a little bit more.

Step 1:  Digital Copy

IMG_4555

Search for the images you want, and then get a digital copy.  There are a TON of digital copies online, but I got mine specifically at a shop on Etsy called SMUZI.  You basically purchase the copy, and you get an instant download to your email.  This shop had them for $6 each, but 40% off if you buy 3, so I ended up ONLY paying $3.66 for each one.  Basically, peanuts.

Step 2: Print 

IMG_4557

For printing, there are a ton of places online, but I chose Staples.  My prints were pretty large (18 X 24) and I got them printed for $14.99 each and they were literally done within the hour.

Step 3: Buy some frames

IMG_4556

I went to Michaels because they had a buy one, get one free deal.  I got two large (24X36, with a 18X24 Mat) frames for only $25 each with the deal.  The link for the frame is here.

Step 4:  Insert & ready to hang

IMG_4533

Put it in the frame, and hang it up.  Total cost? $43.60!  And guys, if you didn’t do it yourself, it would’ve cost WAY more.  And, you likely wouldn’t have found the size you wanted either.  You can find this download of Brigitte Bardot here.

A few others…

IMG_4532

This digital download above of Brigitte Bardot can be found here at this link.

IMG_4534

This picture of Naomi Campbell you can find here.

IMG_4560

And this badass Jack Nicholson photo, is here.  I got Jack larger at 24X36, so the frame I got was different.  And let me tell you something, don’t do the same mistake.

IMG_4369

I got a super cheap poster frame, and the cover is not glass.  So when you look at it from an angle, it looks a little wrinkled.  Don’t make the same mistake I did, make sure yours is always glass.

IMG_4553

Last, but definitely not least, I was literally obsessing over this Roger Moore print for months.  So I bought the digital copy at the same store here.  BUT, I live in California, and well, glass above your head is never a good idea when earthquakes happen.  So, I got this made on a canvass.  And, you can’t really tell, but this is huge.  It’s 36 X 36.

IMG_4550

I got this custom made on Shutterfly for $105 (including tax), and for the size and quality, that is super cheap.  All you do is upload the digital copy online and start selecting the sizes and materials you want. Be sure to look out for deals on Shutterfly, they have some every week.  That’s how I got the above print for 50% off.  Be patient, just check the site often.

Alright guys, I hope that was helpful.  I did not get paid to mention any of the above shops.  Oh, and if you’re good at taking photos, please call me.  I really need to up my game, it’s pathetic.

Love,
Deema
