Hello everyone and happy Saturday!! Today I´d like to share a DIY art wall with you all. See, I have been collecting art done by my crafty friends for a while now and finally had so much together, that I could decorate a whole staircase wall section with them.
Here is what it now looks like:
This staircase wall is the one leading to my studio upstairs and it took my husband and me a whole Saturday to get it done.
I´ve framed the art pieces (if they weren´t on a frame yet!) into IKEA shadow frames. I love the depth this type of frames create around the picture/art piece.
Most of the art is by my very talented and lovely crafty friend Tina Walker. I love what se does!!! And then there are pieces by Tracy Albrechtson Krueger, Maria Potapovich and Louise Nelson. Some, even, are by me. And a few of them were a result of a collaboration of some kind. Oh, and there is a mask from the Amazon in the middle of it all as I find that it perfectly goes with the rest of the art pieces. Our visit there last summer has left an impression – I truly was in awe of the beauty of the rainforest. I think a piece of my heart stayed there…
Anyway, this wall is very special and what better way to get inspired on one´s way to the studio than to pass a art collection like this!!
Here you can see the arrangement from the front, sorry for the bad lighting here, it was a little bit later and darker when I took the last photos.
This art wall makes me soooo happy! Have you displayed art on your walls? Is it by yourself or do you collect art pieces by your crafty friends, like I did? I´d love to see how you display the art!!
