PRINTS & INSPIRATION

We've been married for 2 ½ years and to this day have only printed 3 of our wedding photos. They hang on our wall framed by the picture mats we used as guest books. And for the past 2 ½ years I've wanted to do something more. As soon as we got our wedding photos, I uploaded them to my laptop and Facebook and now the discs sit in the top drawer of my desk gathering dust. I either haven’t had the time or creativity to do anything about it. Pretty sad, I know. I should have more than 3 prints to show for the happiest day of my life!

Does anyone else have this problem?

I love that we have access to digital images at the touch of a button. But nothing beats printed photos. I've been looking for creative ways to display prints and here are some of my favorite ideas:

Pinned Image

Love this huge mat with a smaller photo.

photos on a wire

Photos hung on wire.

shelves and frames

Shelves with layered frames and accessories.

Really cool layered look.

art wall

Great wall collage using different frames.

A tried and true method. Cut scrap paper to the size of the frame and mark the nail location on the paper. Using painter's tape, move the paper templates around the wall until satisfied. Then hammer the nail through the marks. Remove the paper template and hang!

Genius!

Hopefully this will give someone a little inspiration!
