Robin at All Things Heart and Home celebrates people's creativity and projects with a Wednesday link up called All Things Inspired. Sometimes it's crafts, some are home projects, some are yummy tasting goodies - whatever your thing, you can share it there once a week. What a grand idea, not only to get share what you've made, but to be inspired by all those other ideas. So here is mine this week:
This is in my living room. I have high ceilings in my living room had one wall just looking for attention. The others have windows or a fireplace, but this one was blah for a couple years without a lot of luck. One day, while going through my travel photos, I thought I must be able to use these for something other than a scrapbook.
So, I went to my local discount craft store and found these modern black frames with matching crisp white mats for a steal. I tried several photos and made them all sepia (to go with the coloring in the room) and then selected the five I thought worked well together. I used 2 with the perspective of 'looking up', 2 distance shots, and one vertical one of me (taken by my friend) for a little artistic flair. I even printed them out on my home printer with photo paper I already had, no trip to another store.
I love the final project! My brother (the artist/designer) came to my house and asked me who did the work. I felt like the Lowe's commercial woman and said "I did that!"
(I took this photo on a bit of an angle, because the windows on the opposite wall reflect strongly in the glass/frames during the day, and I thought you might not see all the details.) For more fun projects, please visit All things inspired when you have a minute.
