Vintage Magazine Cover Wall Collage

wall

Last Saturday, I spent about three hours rearranging and organizing my sewing studio.  I was trying to create a better backdrop for future videos I wish to create.  However, as I was moving things around and trying to find the best spot, I was disappointed that I didn’t have a wall that I was proud enough of to show to all of you.  Enter my new challenge…create a wall that IS worthy to show all of you!

So I decided to create a vintage magazine themed wall collage that I hope will add a little charm and appeal to my videos.  I decided to go with 1910’s Good Housekeeping and McCall’s covers as they had the most color and some of my favorite styles of art.

Here are a few of the ones I chose!

Then I went and found some rather inexpensive white frames in various sizes to  add some interest.  I printed the images out on photo paper and then placed them in the frames.  I traced the frames out on plain paper and then marked the location of the nail on these paper shapes.  Using painters tape, I was then able to adjust, rearrange, and evaluate to my hearts content.  Once I was happy with the overall look, I then just nailed through the mark on the paper shape, removed the paper from the wall, and hung up my frames!

And here is the finished look!
