More Cheap Art

What’s the point of spending money on travel if you don’t get to save a little money later on? We’re saving some money on artwork by enlarging some of our favorite travel photos.

I took this photo at Sacre Coeur in Paris last spring. I uploaded it to Walmart’s website and ordered an 8″x10″ print, which was ready for me to pick up at our local store about 30 minutes later. For $2.38, plus the cost of a frame and mat, we have this:

And then, with help from some stickers I found in the scrap booking section at Micheal’s, I was able to identify the place and date – important because after a while, Chris and I tend to forget those details.

Anyone have good ideas for cheap art? Please do share!

    What better way to have pictures for your home, than to display the places you have traveled to. I am amazed by your ideas. LOL
