Thanks Gemma! (Photo grid as wall art)


During the Creative Circle Blog Party, Gemma posted this idea for displaying photo grids.  Unfortunately, I don't have the ability to make the cool digital shadows or to print the photos at home. Instead, I bought some inexpensive 12x12 frames at Michael's and ordered some 12x12 prints from MPIX.  These four are now hanging in my living room.  I wish the one of our former dog, Buster, wasn't quite that close-up, and I'm not sure how I feel about the jagged black border I used.  On the whole, though, I'm happy with the experiment, and they will be easy to change out.  Did anyone else try this idea?

No, I haven't tried it yet - I've got no spare walls at the moment!

Not yet, but I certainly will - I loved the idea and I love your version of it :-) And it's such a gorgeous photo of Buster x
