The start of my art print collection

About a month ago, I bought my first art print on etsy from Jenn of noodleandlou, because Jenn's a dear friend and I LOVE HER WORK (who doesn't?). After I got it, I fell in love with the whole idea of having my own little (or big?) art print collection of prints I find on etsy. I decided to start an "art wall" in my living room. I'm going to try to keep them 5x7 or 6x6 ish so I can fit as many as I can on my wall. I think I will even paint the wall a nice rich red! I will either frame each one or I will mount them on a piece of wood with black edges. I'm so excited! So, here's my first print from Jenn:



A few days ago, Mystele of little glimpses bought a print of mine. I checked out her shop and FELL IN LOVE with this print!!

Mystele has some really great stuff on her blog!!! I loved her newest post showing her studio. She's inspired me to really shape up my studio (if you want to call it that). My studio is in the basement and is just a very drab area that needs some inspiration!!! I have quite a large area, but it's sort of on one wall (wish I had a corner spot). Organizing is not one of my strong points, so it's extremely hard for me to do. Any points you all can give me would be very welcome!! I'm too chicken to post what it looks like now on here!

Can't wait to pick out my next print for my wall! :)))

Hey, did you see YOUR prints on the wall! I need to update that blog post with links...thank you so much for your kindness, Liz, and don't be surprised to find me at your shop again! sure do like that "girl with bird". She'd be a great 8 x 10 print for my studio...hint, HINT! :)

I love the idea of you having an art wall...I hope you include some of your own pieces in the display! :)

The market is getting busier and busier! I still hope to make it back to your booth though!

Laura.. I've gone to your booth every single time so far and you are gone, LOL! I bet we both go at the same time? How funny!

Mystele,

Yes, I sure did see my prints on that cool wall you have there! :) And that print you have of Tascha's is my favorite one of hers! That might be my next purchase, but of course there's tons of other artists I'm eyeing up! My goal is to buy one print every 1-2 weeks. :)))

Anyone have any suggestions as to what a good RED is for a wall? I'm looking for a sort of deep, muted red (not fire engine).

Thanks everyone for your kind words!

Liz
