Magazine Picture Wall Progress

Two years ago I began clipping pages to use on a magazine picture wall inspired by botanical prints.

Shortly after we moved into our house, we sold most of the contemporary art I’d owned for years. My walls were happily bare. My aim was to find low-cost replacement art for a magazine picture wall using the high-quality English magazines I favor — they print frame-worthy full-page photos on fine paper.

Disappears with a little spritz of water.

    Thanks for sharing such a good tip. I learned one on pinterest the other day that had me scratching my head wondering why didn’t I think of that.

    Enjoy your art work!
