We love a good home decor trend. When we sought out a "Trending Now" topic for the month of November, every where we looked, the 'gallery wall' reigned supreme. They're eclectic, cute and well suited for a hodge podge of pretty photos. They also make for awesome papercrafting inspiration–Here with her very own take on the topic is CP Gal,Katie Ehmann!
Gallery Walls are abundant on Pinterest and in my very own home. They lend an eclectic look that works to make a big impact on a wall, or in this case, a layout. Small clusters of goodness abound on my page, entitled "Heart you 2".
I tend to gravitate towards bright layotus with lots of color, but for this project I decided to stick with just four colors–black, white, gold, and small pops of rosy-pink. Open Book and Notes and Things work well together in creating both colorful and more neutral projects. Chipboard accents layered atop frames and tags add detail. One of my favorite pieces is the black and white camera in Open Book! I love the vintage style!
I used a tag, Thickers, and a journaling card to create a fun title which incorporates a shape, gold-glittered word and number. Most of the time, my title work is horizontal across my page, but this time, I opted for a vertical placement. The gold Thickers from Open Book are perfect for crafting your own unique title–the options are endless!
To keep my neutral palette, I opted for black and white photos of my girls, taken with my phone. I love to have these everyday moments documented, and since my girls had no idea I was taking their pictures, they make for a photo-journalistic style.
I'm happy with how my gallery wall page turned out and plan to use this technique again on future projects!
