One night a few weeks ago my mom was over my apartment. I can't even remember why now. . . Probably to help me clean or organize stuff for one of my many fundraisers. Whatever the reason, little did she know that I spontaneously decided I wanted to do a collage wall in my living room. I had been wanting to do one for a long time but just hadn't gotten around to it. Honestly I'm not very good at hanging things evenly spaced from one another and she is, so as long as I have her around she will be my official picture hanger!
So I grabbed a few things I wanted to hang and laid them out on the floor. Then we got started!
Fortunately for all of you I had this old photo in my picasa (side note: if you aren't using picasa to organize your photos your should be - it is the best)! So this photo isn't the greatest quality but you get the idea. I had a few random things throw up there and while it looked ok it was nothing special!
I didn't want it to be too uniform or symmetrical on either side so I had to find a few non square/rectangle shaped things. That is when I did a walk around my apartment and found several more things I HAD to include. Word of advice - find everything you want to include first! I found the Magners clock, the letter J and the Red Sox B which all seemed like good odd shaped items to include. I also wanted to include some other red colored items to tie the whole thing together.
I really love the way it came out. I still need to print new photos for the green polka dot frame and the flip flop frame (I can't choose what to put in there) and I could even see
What do you think? Did we do a good job?
I only wish I had a bigger apartment so I could hang even more photos! I have SO many travel photos that I've taken and several paintings/prints I've purchased while traveling. They need a home! I hope someday I'll have a house with plenty of space to display everything!
