Tutorial: Printable Art & My Wall Gallery

Have you seen the wall galleries that have been popping up in home décor? A wall gallery is a collection of art or photos that are grouped together on a wall. They have been around for a while, but I’m only now starting to make some for my home.

I’m working on a wall gallery above our TV. For the last five months, I’ve had these three 8×8-inch digital scrapbooking layouts printed out and up on the wall above our TV. The layouts are held on the wall with a square of cork board, a mini 6×9-inch clipboard, and an old frame that I made over with a map from a road atlas book. I wanted to finish my vision for this wall gallery with another clipboard holding a piece of printable art.

Today I printed out this Printable Art and Crafts: 1 Samuel 1:27 and slipped it under a clipboard. I printed the art on a piece of paper from my kid’s paint pad. The paper has a lovely texture to it. I hope my children read this verse and know how much they are loved by us, their parents, and by God, too.

Here it is! It literally took about five minutes to do this project. I don’t know why I waited so long! These printable arts and crafts products include five different sizes. I chose the 8×10-inch file size and printed it onto 8.5×11-inch textured paper using my home printer. After I trimmed off the white edges, I clipped it to the clipboard. The clipboard is attached to the wall with a Command-brand 3M picture hanging strip.

I love how informal and easy this gallery grouping looks. I can switch out printable art and digital scrapbooking layouts to change with the seasons. The printable art finishes off my wall gallery exactly how I had envisioned it.
