Hello again my friends! I hope this post finds you well. Last month I shared about the opening of the Fujifilm Wonder Photo Shop with you, and some of the awesome products and DIYs that you will find there. This week I want to share a project with you that I made with my instax® photos, some watercolors, and some washi tape.

I still plan on taking a trip into The City to visit. I want to see all the cameras, and get some great DIY ideas. 

instax®When I was visiting family in MA, my Uncle Dominick got married! I used my instax® to take photos during the wedding and at the party after. I put the photos together in a little instax® album, and was able to give it to Dominick and Lisa before the party was over! It was a big hit!!

The instax® solves that problem by printing out the photos the moment you take them. So I gathered some craft supplies, took a bunch of photos of the girls, and got to creating!

Would you like to know how to make one of your own? It’s actually really easy; here’s what you’ll need:

watercolor paper (mine was 15″ x 20″)
paint brush
instax® photos
glue or double sided tape
washi tape

OK, to begin you will need 2 separate cups of water, one to rinse your brush in, and one to stay clear. You will also need your watercolor paper, watercolors, and brush.

Start by wetting the corner of the paper with the clear water, then get some red paint on your brush and brush it into the wet corner.

Now it’s time for photos!!! Flip your dry painting back over to the front, and lay out your photos. Glue or tape the photos in place.
