Selfie Project – February 2021

Another month of 2021 is in the books. Which means it is time to share my favorite selfies from last month’s SELFIE PROJECT collection. I don’t want to break my arm patting myself on the back, but I am pretty pleased with the February collection. I didn’t get out that much, but I did get a little bit, and unlike January, I was able to incorporate a few other people in my selfies. Not many people, but a couple people are sprinkled in here and there.

Here are my favorites from February:

Selfie Project – 2021

Hopefully in March, a couple other people can percolate into my selfies.

  1. Your photo wall looks amazing! You did a great job of fitting them all in (I do realize picking out the sizes helps this a lot!).

  2. I need to get going on my Hallway project. I was making lots of progress on that and then a month ago I stopped and haven’t done anything. Maybe today and I can jumpstart that project again.

    I’ve always wanted mod podge (or whatever it is called) a wall in my house with physical 4×6 prints. I’ve mostly thought about doing this with my basement stair walls.

    My family is horrified by this idea because of the “resale” value of my house.

    That isn’t why I haven’t done it though. I just haven’t. I’ve been also considering this with my bathroom walls. Which would horrify them even more.

    I think what is mostly holding me back is that I don’t know how to do it. Yet. I’m going to research this after my hallway project is completed.

  3. I love the idea of a hallway! I lost motivation to do almost any projects about a month ago. Winter went on too long after too long of quarantine.

    I can help you with mod podge! I’ve decoupaged a serving tray, and also put paper images of the kids onto wooden boards to hang on that shelf we’re waiting to do in our basement. It’s really honestly very easy – you just get a thin base coat of it on the surface, stick your photo, and then put another thin coat over the top. I have only used printer paper or craft paper, never actual photo paper – if you used a matte sort of mod podge and printer paper, you’d get sort of a cool wallpaper look with it. I’ve never tried to remove it, but I’d guess that it would just be a pain in the same way that wallpaper is? You may want to research that.

    All of that would be useless if you plan on using photo paper, though!

  4. You know, I’ve been looking into it and it seems like photo paper is too thick to do it effectively. So maybe this is a fools plan.

    I don’t want to use printer paper, because the image quality will suffer. Maybe I could try wallpaper paste? I don’t know. Feel free to experiment for me. It will save me time.

    My interest in this has been recently been sparked again as I have watched the Shepard Fairey documentary like 3 times in the last 2 weeks.

    But while I was researching homemade wheat paste recipes (I actually asked Shannon if she ever made wheat paste, cause it seemed like the type of thing she might have done, but she had never heard of wheat paste) I came across this sweet collection of posters you can wheat paste around town:

    https://crimethinc.com/posters

    Probably got put on some watch list for going to that website, but worth it.

    The Hallway Project is going to be a photomosaic self-portrait. Possibly might make the original image for this week’s THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE image.

  5. I just did some research! It looks like photo paper is a little thick for most options – you could try to hang it with wallpaper paste on the back, but it looks like either it will seep through and make the image look crappy, or it won’t be thick enough and the image will curl? But apparently there are a lot of places where you can just design your own wallpaper: https://www.photowall.com/us/custom-wallpaper

    I don’t know how that would work with every image being unique. You’d probably want to email a place, if you were serious about looking into that. The other option might be to look at those Scotch Removable Mountain Tape things or clear dots or picture holders (all stickers), and try it that way (again realizing it might curl or fall off). It looks like there is also magnetic paint, but it’s super expensive and hard to mount.

    That website is awesome – it’s like if Fight Club decided that they wanted to capitalize on their non-capitalism ideas and mass produce them. Those would all be fantastic posters. But if you’re on a list from looking at it, just imagine if you buy from it!

    That will be really cool! You’ve got so many good self-portraits at this point (like this week’s weekly photo challenge one!) that it’ll be hard to choose, I’d think.

  6. Yeah, wallpaper is going to be too organized. Plus I hate wallpaper. Maybe even more than I hate carpet. Looks like the decoupage wall will remain a dream for now.

    But I still am thinking of getting some pieces of plywood to do some wheatpasting too. Although, they say it doesn’t stick the best to wood, so I guess what we’ll see.

    The idea for the hallway photomosaic is that I’m going to put to 30 x 40 canvases together to make on e 30x 80 image. Obviously the seam in the middle might not be the best, but whatever. I think it should still look fine. If it looks like trash, I’m the only one that sees it anyways.

    The problem with the dots and tape is that I want the decoupage wall to be pretty much permanent and look more like a collage than straight pictures. So the pictures will overlap one another.

    Yeah, while looking into wheatpasting, I also found a website called rasterbate, that will take an image and turn it into as many sheets of paper as you want. I’m going to have to play with that at some point in the future too. Maybe I could rasterbate an image onto the back of my garage. Hmmmm…. Probably not because of the unevenness of the siding.

    Jus ideas to think about.

  7. Wallpaper is terrible. My mom went nuts wallpapering their house in Ogden, and it was an entire ordeal getting it all off of there. I keep thinking it might be neat to try and use the removable stuff, but I’m positive that it wouldn’t actually remove well. You could likely even hang some wheatpasted plywood in there, if you could find a way to get it hung? I mean, it would be nails or whatever rather than those dots or more removable stuff.

    I can safely say that I can’t bring myself to google “rasterbate.” I tried, and I just can’t do it. But that would be really cool to make it a mural type of thing?
