In the summer time I like switching over to breezy cottons, linens, glass, and fresh from my garden flowers. Changing out artwork makes everything airier too. As someone madly in love with photography I’ve got lots of images to choose from. So I’ve been purchasing frames that fit standard sized prints that I can showcase my photos as inexpensive artwork all summer.
Putting on a show
I liked these shots so much that I used some of them as a freebie for my email subscribers to make into gift cards, and I’ve used them as enlargements grouped together in a gallery wall setting at the top of the stairs, it’s like a mini art show, and I’m the curator.
That’s totally cool isn’t it?
Now can you imagine yours, hanging on the wall?
Customize images to fit the room, either by setting up a shot, or by going through my archives and choosing something complimentary. I’ve bought a assortment of frames that fit 11 x 17 inches, 8 x 10, or even a 8 x 8 inches prints. All I need to do is upload my images, tweak them a bit in picmonkey, and send them to my local print shop.
I was framed!
I”ve used my local printer’s laser color photocopier to print out something that costs under a dollar, and looks great, or I could have enlargements made from my work My frames fit standard sized prints so it’s easy to change up the artwork on a whim, one day it might be a bokah blue forgetme not, and the next week it’s water drops on fresh green hosta leaves.
Grouping them together gives me larger impact on the wall, if the space is smallish I might hang one, or two pieces in it.
I’ve always felt it’s a shame to let our photos languish around on camera cards, print them out, enjoy them, share them, make a photo book for your coffee table.
So why not hang them up as a mini gallery show? I’m sure it will get great reviews.
