Just about everyone has tried a collage of pictures on the wall...whether it's super clean with only framed pictures or an amazing frame rod and ribbon set up there comes a time when you're ready for a change. Alexis Crockett is here from Rod Works to help you take the first step towards a new wall collage. Kids new school pictures and the changing of the seasons is the perfect time to create a new wall of photos for you and your family to enjoy. Here are a few tips to help make your wall one of a kind and special.
You can choose your pictures and buy the frames that will fit them or you can buy frames and print the pictures you want in them...either way you need great pics and frames that showcase them.
Choose a style or a color that will be your theme, this will help bring continuity to the wall and your pictures will be the focal point. (not choosing a common look will take the focus off your pictures)
Find non-picture items that fit your theme or style, good choices would be a plaque with a fun saying that fits your family, a piece of art that ties in with the rest of your homes decor, your children's hand prints, a proclamation, special items in a shadow box, your monogram in large letters that can be hung on the wall, etc. You really can't go wrong with these special items, just try to remember the space your filling and keep your color/style plan in mind.
Use ribbon to dress up your collage and give you that polished look. Ribbon can enhance your color plan and bring a constant to all the items on your wall.
A wall collage will always be an amazing piece of art in your home and if you're not sure where to start just stop into Rod Works or visit us online at www.rodworks.com
