The task of getting the perfect selfie can be a tough process. Obviously the right angle and lighting is key, but picking the perfect edit is the final ingredient! I love playing around with different filters to see which one makes my photo look best. There are three apps I use in particular that I’ve been obsessed with!

  • VSCO is one of my favorite apps for editing any picture. There are tons of filters that will give your photo more of a professional look. Chelsea Crockett - FacetuneYou can adjust all aspects of your selfie from lighting to sharpness to undertones. You can even post your edited pictures to your VSCO feed to share with others!
  • This app is one of the most complex editing apps there is. You can do almost anything from teeth whitening to getting rid of dark circles or blemishes. There are also filters for you to finish off the job!
  • Afterlight was one of the first apps I used to edit my pictues. Just like VSCO, there are tons of filters and different edits to customize your selfie. It’s $0.99 but definitely worth it!

Which is your favorite selfie editing app? Let me know and I’ll try it out for myself! 🙂

If you can’t already tell from my Instagram account, I really love taking pictures!  It can be hard finding enough space on your desk or dresser for picture frames; plus, they usually only hold one picture!  If you have a lot or a little wall space, check out how you can easily make your own photo studio!

Start by purchasing a slab of magnet, scrap booking paper and a picture frame.  Cut the magnet and scrap booking paper so it fits in the picture frame.  Leaving the glass in or out, place the pattern scrap booking paper face down and the magnet in the frame before securing it.  Hang the frame on your wall and, using small magnets, hang as many pictures as you want!

Another way to hang pictures is to buy an empty frame, twine, and clothes pins.  Take the glass and backing out of the frame and start stringing twine across the frame, securing it with super glue or staples.  Do this from the back of the frame so it stays hidden.  Using clothes pins, hang the pictures across the twine!  Hang your frame on the wall and display your pictures for all to see!Chelsea Crockett- hanging photos with twine

Happy DIY!

           Chelsea Crockett - Picture Cork BoardIf you’ve ever seen Pottery Barn, you’ll know that all of their merchandise is fun and creative, but don’t forget a little pricey!  One of their products is a photo cork board, such as the one on the left.  Most people don’t want to pay for things that they can easily make at home.  That being said, here’s a short tutorial on a DIY picture cork board!

            First off, you’ll need to determine how big you want your board, depending on the size of the wall you put it on.  Here’s what you need for one such as the board above!  First, find nine small squares of cork board.  Keep in mind the size of your wall!  You’ll need to go to your nearest craft store such as Hobby Lobby for example.  Then, pick out nine colors or patterns of cloth that will look best in your room!  Make sure you get the right sized cloth to glue onto your cork.  Once you get home, I suggest taking a hot glue gun to glue your cloth and cork together.  Then, ask a parent, or someone who is good with a saw, to cut a piece of thin plywood the size that you need.  Remember to leave room for your frame.  After, take your nine material cork squares and glue them to the plywood in whatever order you want.  Last, cut some trim to frame the outside of your patterned board.  Make sure to use a strong glue to glue it on.  There are many ways to hang your board on your wall.  Ask help from a parent for which way is best.  Then add as many photos or decorations as you want!  Enjoy!

Love, Chelsea
