Now is a perfect time to do a photocrafting project for your mother! Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 9, 2021 in the United States. Although we missed the date in the U.K., March 14, these photocrafting ideas are good for many occasions! It’s a round-up of three of our previous creations with an emphasis on our mothers!
First gather some photos. How about the youngest ones in the family, drawings from children (always one of my favorites), a family portrait, a favorite vacation memory. I gathered a couple photos in each category to consider. I loved the flowers and thought the two girls were especially adorable in this photo. The penguins seemed to have more interesting potential for a photocrafted gift than the beautiful snow.
Whatever you’ve been doing this summer, it will be one to remember! And photocrafting is all about memories. So how about making a beach towel with a special memory of the summer. It’s quick and easy! With luck, you’ll still have a few weeks to enjoy using it and next summer it will be a reminder of a happy time or place in the summer of 2020.
By now you probably know that I most often use my computer or laptop for photocrafting. Niece Shell likes being on her smartphone so this post is from her! She suggests five photocrafting options for your phone. (She uses an iPhone; I use an Android, and these work on both). Apps that work directly on your smartphone mean you don’t have to upload your photos to a computer!
I love having an excuse to do some photocrafting and Father’s Day is a perfect occasion. Shell says it’s often hard to find something for a guy, especially something with photos but we have a few ideas for you.
Everyone’s home now and that Includes kids of all ages. Seems like a good time to think about how the younger ones especially might get involved in photocrafting? Maybe make something for them; maybe help them create something to give to someone else (it’s hard not to see friends and family in person!); maybe use their artwork as the photo! We’ll list five of our favorite ideas, some new and some based on photo projects we’ve already shown you. Hope you’ll add some ideas of your own in our Comments or on our Facebook page Photocrafting Fun.
