art wall fix from Jan dicintio of daisy janie

April 15, 2010

Although I don't possess this quality myself, extreme attention to detail is a trait I find admirable in others. Take this project from Jan DiCintio of Daisy Janie, for example. When planning her arrangement, Jan made a "map" of sorts by converting all of her frame sizes into proportional pieces in Illustrator, then played with them until the group looked pleasing to her eye. She even color-coded the dark vs. light frames--genius. If you're not handy with design software, Jan suggests doing this by-hand using graph paper and scaled cut-outs.

Do check out Jan's full post for more tips on how she pulled off this lovely gallery wall.

Beautiful! I love the white frames with pops of black. And then I love the technique! Very good idea. :-)

I think that would take amazing amounts of patience, which I lack. Attention to details, sure but patience? Oy, no wonder my walls have so many "bonus" holes in them. Sure looks amazing though!
