As much as I love making 12x12 pieces of paper look pretty with photos, patterned paper, trim, lace, buttons, stickers, and other embellishments, I can't manage to make a wall look pretty. Or just about anything else in my house for that matter. I love tidy, and neat, and classic clean looking. No nicknacks. no clutter. All that neat and tidy however leaves me no imagination of how pretty and colourful a space can look. I'm terrible at it. I always get a little self conscience when certain friends of mine come over. You know the ones, who homes look all cute and well decorated, with little bursts of colour here and there. Anyway I had an idea for a photo collage to put in our family room. You know those photos we took last weekend. I wasn't sure how to get all the frames evenly spaced, and level on the wall, but with a little help from a friend I figured out a plan of action to cover the really big space of uncovered wall behind our couch.
3M velcro adhesives that's all we use around here now. They're great. Easy to use, and easy to remove, while keeping your paint intact.
And here's what it looks like now (I apologize in advance for the glare, it was either glare from the flash, or glare from the sun, I choose the sun).
greyish papers from the new My Mind's Eye Lost and Found II may do the trick. I'll see if I can pick it up at my crop this weekend. Sorry I've nothing scrappy to share with you today. I made a card for a friend, but gave it away before taking a photo, I do that a lot unfortunately. Hopefully I'll be able to get back to scrapping soon. Like I mentioned there's a crop coming up this weekend with the lovely Sharon of The Scrapbook Cottage in Steinbach. Can't wait to hang with my scrappy friends, gaining inspiration, and catching up on each other's lives. Oh, and maybe even get some scrapping done sometime over the 48 hours. I have a mini album in mind.
Thanks for popping in friends, have a good day.
