Most of us art collectors have many more things that we'd like to display than wall space to display them. One way to get our collection of 2-D artwork out of the closet and onto the wall is to create a few wall arrangements where we can display many pieces of artwork in an artistic and complementary way. I'll discuss some thoughts on creating pleasing wall arrangements in this article. What I do when planning a wall arrangement is first to mark off the size and shape of the area on the floor, using some tape as an outline. I then measure where all the hangers would be, make a diagram on a piece of paper, and use that to attach the hangers to the wall. Whatever extra holes are caused by small adjustments needed in the position of the hangers remain hidden behind the artwork. Arranging artwork on a wall area is similar to composition or design of a painting on paper or canvas. If we think of balance in terms of weight, large shapes "feel" heavier than small shapes, and dark shapes "feel" heavier than light shapes. In addition, balance can be either formal, with similar shapes in similar positions on both sides of the painting, or informal, with larger shapes on one side close to the.

Rather than start attaching things to it, I might make up some decorative magnets using old jewelry, buttons, etc, This way you could use it as a picture or note holder without altering it in case you wanted to change it up at a later time. In the meantime, if anyone else has a clock face project, comes across an interesting do-over or has a suggestion, do share and add links in the comment section. Unlike myself, Betsy blogs regularly, connects with other bloggers and you'll get tons of decorating, crafting ideas. AFRICA: South Africa. NORTH AMERICA: Canada : Ontario.
