Art Collage

We had this nice big wall in our new living room that needed something on it. We also had more art than I knew what to do with. This is why I love the new fad of art collages. Who wants a boring wall filled with all images that look entirely the same? And who has that? The beauty of art collages is that just about anything can go up on the wall. Usually you get a quirky conversation piece that's a well-rounded representation of all your interests. This is nice because it combines the things I love with what Jason loves. What do you think?


I started by laying everything on the floor until I got an interesting collection of things and moved things around until it felt "right" or balanced. You don't have to do that. You can just take some nails to the wall and do whatever. Great, right?


I always try to add a little moment of surprise and humor in what I put up. Hence the little gnome. He moves to a new place every time we move. :)


Moving in to our new home has made me realize that it just isn't home until I've surrounded myself with art! Now back to sewing...

I think it turned out great! Is Jason a space-guy? Or a pattern-guy? Nice with the blue that links it together but with a lot of variation too. Really love the big blue painting(is it a painting?) with the pattern! Love the little gnome too - I all in for a touch of quirky :-)

Jason is color blind so he tends to like things that really play with the eye and have a lot of impact. the Agam (the white frame with the shifting colors look)is something he likes. I tend to like the more subtle, gentler stuff. Together they make a nice balance.
