Transform childhood artwork into a photo book

Childhood artwork often cycles from fridge frames to cupboard clutter faster than relatives can say, “Look how tall you’ve grown!” Instead of banishing your childhood cherished drawings and paintings to the storage box or spare room cupboard to collect dust, why not compile those proud masterpieces into a beautiful book that doubles as a delightful coffee table tome and nostalgic keepsake.

1. Scan your images

If you're like me and you've kept every one of your childs' charcoal drawings and handmade bookmarks, it's time to do away with the streams of butchers paper you've been hoarding sonce day dot and scan each piece of art into your computer via your home printer/scanner.

2. Choose a book size / cover style

At this stage you could choose to use a free online photo-editing tool to clean up your images if you feel the need.
Otherwise, the next step is to choose the size / cover style of your photo book. I opted for an 20x20cm (8×8") square photo book to give a slick portfolio feel to my art collection. Who says kid-art can’t be gallery quality?

3. Select layout and caption

Display one painting or drawing per page to achieve a crisp portfolio aesthetic. Choose your favourite 1-photo layout, or just drag-and-drop your photo onto the page.
Caption each photo, including age and the year the artwork was completed. Use the same font throughout for uniformity (I opted for a kid-like scrawl).

4. Create cover + spine
4. Create cover + spine

Create a collage of your favourite paintings for the cover (see above) and include a photo of the artist too! Label each album by adding the year(s) to the spine.
Give this page-turning walk down memory lane a go! We'd love to see your childhood sketches, so make sure to share your creations with us on Facebook or Instagram.
