[ art grouping progress ]

SO I'VE made a bit of progress on my art grouping over the sofa - I've narrowed down the pics I'll be using (all but a couple were taken by me over the years). After a bit of playing around in Photoshop, I'm happy with how they look grouped together.



Now to frame them and the gruelling job of measuring them out on the wall!

Thank goodness for these little guys since our walls are concrete and no nailing is possible:


I think these will be a godsend since the pics can be shifted around a bit to get them all aligned afterwards (my pet peeve is groupings like this where they don't line up).

Wish me luck! So that's what's on my plate this weekend - whatcha up to?

to be gorgeous....

Great shots!!! I did a wall grouping last weekend and it drives me nuts too when they don't quite line up. I find that earthquake putty (easily avail at HD) is my best friend for adjusting a little here and there and then making sure they don't move!

Can't wait to see it all done...have fun!

It will look just great! These sticky things really work? We've had the same problem with some of our UK walls :)

They are going to look great Lisa...love the soft colours. Good luck with the placement...I would have 16 holes behind every picture if it was me putting them up...hubby, however, would achieve it with scientific precision!! Robx
