Ever since the start of 2017, I have been wanting to embrace a change. To try something different, to think bigger. While I am not there yet with a solid idea, I know I had, to begin with changing my uninspiring workspace. Having discovered that I don’t make much use of the cork board these days and my wall in front of me is straight up blank. I decided it’s about time I get as colorful as my Instagram feed is for my workspace is not representing my true spirit. Am I supposed to brainstorm big ideas in a space lacking personality? Luckily Mixbook came to my rescue! I’ve always wanted a wall gallery, and I knew that with some good pictures I will be set. Choosing the size and uploading my art was so easy, it only took me minutes and the result was even more breath-taking.
The key to a beautiful and well put-together wall gallery is to deliberately choose your pieces of art in similar shades of color. For example, a B&W scene would not fit in this bright and colorful gallery of mine. To keep things interesting, go with a variety of scene from nature to something quirky like the pineapple I am holding to an abstract paint. Feel free to spice it up with other decorative items: like a wall hanging or in my case this cute little pom pom clock that I made a year ago.
I am in awe of the pink rooftop image that you won’t believe I shot and edited with my iPhone. You should come here to see it here up & close yourself, the quality is brilliant. Oh! Wait you don’t have to! I will be giving away 3 of these to one of you ( click over to this Instagram post for further details ) And that’s not it. I’ve painted three art pieces that you can print at Mixbook here. With prices starting as low as at $7.99 you can’t really complain.
- Poster ( you can print yours here )
- Craft paper
- Foam board
- Glue stick
- X-Acto knife
- Jute twinning
- Glue gun
1.Place your poster over your craft paper of your choice. Trace the poster over the craft paper and add 1 1/2 inches’ extra on each side.
2. Apply glue to the back of the poster and stick it on the foam frame
3. Stick the poster to the foam board and cut it to size with a sharp X-Acto knife over a curing mat or a surface you don’t mind scratches upon
4. Measure and cut some jute twinning as per the width of the poster. And stick it the back of the frame with some hot glue.
Hammer a nail and hang your brand new poster frame board. It is so light that you skip the jute twinning and hang it on your wall with some double-sided tape which is great for a dorm room and rental apartment. My space has never been this colorful and happy.
FYI: the pineapple art was printed on a metal and the pink rooftop image on a canvas and the abstract art that we just made a frame for a glossy poster (you can order framed ones as well)
