Scrapbook Wall Art

As most of you know, I love to scrapbook and one of the things I love to do is frame my favorite layouts and showcase them throughout our house. They can easily be changed/updated and make wonderful personal pieces of art. The three pieces that I'm sharing with you today are hanging in our front room so everyone sees them when they walk in the house.

Unfortunately some of the supplies I used are no longer available - the dsp and the brass eyelets. The frames are just inexpensive IKEA frames that we had some ugly artwork in before I changed them up.
The two layouts of my kids on their own are in 8"x8" frames and the big one is about 24"x36" (frame size). I had to do some piecing together with the dsp for the large one because one sheet wasn't enough but I chose patterns that wouldn't show any seams. I added the beautiful Tree, Thoughts & Prayers (small) definitely decorative piece to the glass on the large frame. Our definitely decorative pieces are wonderful for these types of things - and you can take it with you when you move!

The photos of the kids on their own, were taken in a small town just outside of Medicine Hat Alberta - Hilda. We were there for a family reunion last year and happen to drive by this deserted building. I think it used to be a store. I thought it would make a wonderful backdrop for some photos so we did a super quick photo shoot. I chose the photos to portray the personalities of my kids. In this one - my daughter looks so sweet and innocent and for the most part she is. Eathan's is fun, it shows his silly side. He is always saying or doing the funniest things. They were the perfect photos for this project.

Here's a photo of how they look together on the wall.
I hope you enjoyed a little peak into some of the home decor we have in our home and that it gives you some ideas for your own. If you'd like to see what other Definitely Decorative pieces we offer, you can view the brochures here and here. Be sure to stop by on June 1st to find out which pieces from these brochures will be retiring.
Thanks for stopping by!
