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!
