Art Project #1

One of my goals is to have only original artwork in the house. When you are on a budget, you have to get creative. Here is the first of 3 most recent art endeavors: Scrabble.

Nate and I simply assembled our names on a Scrabble board and took a picture. I then had the picture printed by Winkflash on their laminated black Gator board. Here are the specs on the Gator board:

Laminated and Gator Board Mounted PosterThe best way to add strength, durability, and protection for your poster. Your poster is mounted on black gator board and then covered with 0.002" clear UV protective laminate. Your image goes all the way to the edges. laminated gator board mounted posters are available in a variety of sizes starting at $24.95 for an 8x10
» 99-year acid free archival paper
» High color gamut produces vivid colors
» Epson UltraChrome HDR Pigment based inks
» 10mil (260 g/m2) paper thickness

We glued a bracket hanger onto some styrofoam and glued that onto the back of the picture.

And here's the finished product. Simple and customized. I've had friends request that I make customized ones for them. Can't wait to get started!
