My good friend from college, Wendy, put these framed papers up in her dining area. Don't they look great? I love the paper she used- gorgeous color and pattern. I think she did a wonderful job with the layout. Perfectly casually grouped. Good job, Wendy!
OK, here is an idea to use if you want to put up a group of paintings, art, or pictures. Trace around the frames onto paper (I used paper bags) and cut out the shape. Hang up on the wall with masking tape. Then you can look, stand back, move things around.
Otherwise you will have to have a friend hold things up for you to try and get the idea. (That's Jessie at her house...the paper bags helped a lot, although the paintings are in a different room now- but look good there as well :)
Here is a photo from the Martha Stewart site (more martha...) - you can see the directions here for putting fabric onto canvas.
Here is my one attempt at putting fabric onto a canvas. I just wrapped the fabric around the canvas and pounded in tacks to fasten the fabric to the back.
