I Won!

I've been seeing wrapped canvases ALL OVER blogland and I've been wanting one ever since! So imagine how excited I was when I won an 8x10 from Canvas To Art from a giveaway on Hip2Save. You had to be one of the first 50 to fill out the form, and I was! Then came the tough part, deciding what photo to use. I ended up going with a silhouette picture I took of all three kids when we were on vacation in Virginia. I love it! Check it out!

I plan on using it for either a collage or on photo ledges on this wall. I'm leaning towards the collage because this wall is pretty big. But I really like the look of ledges, too. Not sure where else I could put those though. Would it look weird to have a collage on this wall, and ledges on the wall to the right? We're also thinking about painting this room, and I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to get rid of that hideous gold spotlight above the couch. But what kind of light fixture would look good there? I'm not a fan of track lighting, and there is a round vent dead center in this room. Suggestions?

Thanks Hip2Save & Canvas To Art!

hey wendy,

you know there are a lot of neat pot lights or puck lights on the market now, get rid of that gold thing. kinda dated. u could put a positionable pot light and aim it towards the art on the wall. there are lots of newer styles, and less attention grabbing :) some require little or no construction work. as for the collage., in MY opinion, u need black frames or dark wood, and perhaps all in equal sizes even if they are staggered. the larger one seems to offset the cluster, if u want different sizes, then the weight need to be equaled out, that large one seems heavy, so a counter balance on the bottom right would work well. i personally like to group photos of similar nature, like all black and whites or all sepia for example. i also have my "gallery" of kids pics above the couch. all studio photos. no multi-image in one frame, just single images but all in black frames. :) good luck

Um, first of all, I can't believe anyone would want to get rid of such an awesome and sassy brassy couch spotlight! Or so my husband would say.... Hopefully, you won't have to fight that battle. I have been arguing with mine about ridiculous track lighting for oh 2 years now...I say I feel like I am constantly on-stage and he says he likes feeling like he's standing in the sunshine...ugh.
Secondly, I Love, LOVE, LOVE that pic of your kids! Amazingness! Nice work, girl!
