I imagine & think about my projects & how they should match the picture inside my head probably way too much! I’m a thinker. I need to process. Sometimes very slowly. Sometimes for days. I suppose that’s why I’m also a self proclaimed procrastinator. More often than not though, I’m accused of doing things too fast. Sometimes it is best to just jump in with both feet & see how it’s going to turn out. I suppose if I didn’t ever do that than I might not get some of those ideas to come to life!
Everything I post tends to go back to Pinterest. This one is no different. I have always laid out on the floor whatever I’m going to be hanging on the wall in order to “see” how it should be arranged. But when I saw the clever idea of making templates out of paper (I used brown grocery sacks) taping them to the wall with painters tape & marking where the hardware to hang them was just so brilliant to me! So, after I painted up all my frames to match I did just that. I think it couldn’t have turned out any better. I used up more of my Goodwill & yard sale frames. As you can see there on the bottom right of the wall is still a bare spot. I plan to put a future family photo (or two) there, in a matching frame, of course!
