So I mentioned before that I was crushin' on Sandra's home tour at Sawdust and Paperscraps.
Here is one of my favorite photos
(pulled straight from my "Inspiration" photo folder in our photo program.)
I highly recommend everyone has one.
::stepping off my soap box now::
Is it not absolutely fantastic!? I love gallery walls but sometimes they look too busy. Instant solution to the business is to have frames that are all the same (or 3) colors.
So here's what I had to work with.
A snoozer hallway which leads into our shweet foyer
So I measured out what space I'd have to work with on the wall and recreated that space on the floor with masking tape.
Then grabbed every empty (or with a photo but siting in a closet) frame I owned
Just start messing around with it!
Taking photos of each layout helped so much because then I could flip back through them to see which one I liked better. I have about 40 more....but I'll spare you with just one more option....
Then OCD me made a color plan before I started painting my frames. (And if you're super observant, you'll notice that I made a change even after I made my "map")
And here we are today!
I framed more than just photos.
Sea life corpses (ha...thats my starfish)
Quotes I love
Silohuettes of people I love (more on that later!)
and scrapbooking embellishments (the one I used says "Love")
yeah...we're kind of fond of love around here...
And if you're wondering the quote says
"I've fallen in love many times...always with you."
Oh yes, and a plate. Because its cute, and I can.
Notice that I have two empty frames? Thats because I'm brewing up two more craftastic things to do in those and share tutorials with you guys.
