MY DIY | Tiny Picture Gallery Wall








I love getting my hands on new gadgets and exploring all the DIY possibilities they come equip with, which is why I was so excited to receive my new Intel tablet. Before I did anything, I had to test out the camera to make sure that it would bring my Instagram game to a whole new level. While taking selfie after selfie, I had the idea of creating a DIY gallery wall using some of my favorite Instagram shots and the tablet’s Intel RealSense technology to make some fun edits to the pictures. Unlike anything I’ve ever used before, RealSense technology allows you to write and doodle in mid air as your creation comes to life on screen. These elements allow you personalize your gallery wall in a way you’ve never seen before. We printed out all our pics framed with unfinished wood frames, adding neon touches to the corners. Check out the steps and supplies after the break…

What you need:
Dell Venue 8 Tablet with RealSense technology
Dell Active Stylus
Wooden picture frames, we used these square ones
Photo paper
Favorite snapshots
Painter’s tape
Adhesive strips

What to do:
Upload and save your favorite pictures to the Dell Venue 8 Gallery app.
Open the photos individually within the app and locate the edit button. Using the Dell Active Stylus, add text or fun graphics to your pictures.
Crop and format your photos so that they will fit snugly within the picture frames. If you’re frames are square, Instagram shots work perfectly!
Arrange your picture frames in a desired layout. Use painter’s tape to map off where you will add color, and then paint these areas.
Print and insert your edited photos into the picture frames. Finally, hang the frames on the wall using adhesive strips to create your one-of-a-kind DIY gallery wall.

This post was made in collaboration with the Intel. Thanks for showing love to my sponsors who make I SPY DIY possible!
