New Wall Art

I love to frame scrapbook paper. Scrapbook paper is cheap and you can easily just switch it out when you get bored. I usually get my scrapbook paper from the local craft store, but a few months ago I came across the site..... Paper Mojo.

I tell ya, THIS paper sure got my mojo going. You better believe I was doing a happy dance especially after I saw the price........ $4.50. New wall art?? Yes please!!

I wish I had a huge empty wall to frame the whole sheet! I don't...... so I made due with what I had and cut it to the size that I needed. I was able to fill 5 frames with the one piece. I went with the black, gold, and silver color. The other colors are beautiful as well! I might need one of those in the future.

I was going to try and make this marble paper, but between the paint, my time, and not even knowing how to create this marble art- I figured I'd pass. I will pay the $4.50 and shipping. Thank you very much! It arrived in perfect condition all wrapped up in a tube. I just used scrapbook paper flat glue dots to attach the paper to the back of the matte.

I love it! This wall art is a keeper for a while. I don't see my self changing it out anytime soon. Unless I buy this Pirouette Marbled Paper - Turquoise, Apricot & Raspberry. Love that one too!

The black, gold, and silver is beautiful in person. You can see and feel the texture of the paint. I just picked out the area I wanted to cut for my large frame and then I used the left overs for my smaller frames.

You can also buy the paper in size 8.5 x 11 HERE. I think a set of 9 8x10 frames (3 rows of 3) with this marbled paper would look stunning above a bed, above a fire place, or any focal point in the room.

Even 3 of these square IKEA frames would look nice on a wall or above a bed.

LOL, you can see my poor bald topiary. hahaha!

If you are lucky enough to have a space for the full sheet you can get a nice reasonably priced frame at IKEA. The rectangle Ribba frame is under $25. I used the square Ribba frame which I already had.

This is the picture that caught my eye and when I fell in love with the paper. Can you see the marble paper peeking out at you on the left side?

Also, this paper would make beautiful wrapping paper for a special occasion!
