Art in a Pinch

Time to make a change! I've had a display of black and white photos in our living room for the past two years. It's nice but needed updating. Adding color pictures is the most obvious way to spruce things up. Check -- I added four new color photos. But I wasn't satisfied. The wall needed some pizazz (do people even use that word anymore??).  Turns out, I had everything I needed for some chic artwork.  

3-dimensional sticker + scrapbook paper + frame =
artwork for the creatively challenged
How cute is this?

On a roll, I made one other piece with a fall theme.
The background is a scan of Psalm 26.  I blurred the text to make the leaves pop.

The opportunities are endless --- imagine using 3-dimensional stickers for all of the holidays, birthdays, etc.  You'll have a continuously changing wall.  I love it!  Here's the final product:

What a great idea! I have so many pretty pages of scrapbook paper, and this would be a great way to use them up!

I'm visiting from Just Something I Whipped Up. Have a great week!

I love how your photo collage wall looks- it's a great mix to keep you visually interested.

And I love the vintage looking couple piece- you could sell those with the couple's name and wedding date :) hint, hint...
