Photo Collage Montage

Ever since I had to take one of my picture collages down to make room for this vintage hutch, I have been searching for another spot to hang some art.  This is the view from my kitchen, and as I stood at the counter chopping veggies for dinner the other day, it hit me.  There is room around the Avett Brothers poster for more...much more.

I started by collecting items I already had to add to my new art wall.  


The cow head came from a flea market, and I think he is so cute.  I had been looking for a permanent place for him for awhile now.  I also added an antique ruler for some warmth.


I recycled an IKEA picture frame from the now defunct picture wall to frame this cute free printable from LayBabyLay.


After a little photoshopping, this adorable photo of my pup has a graphic quality that gives it some edge.  No matter how edgy she may look, her little pink tongue is still so sweet.


And finally a salvaged "D"...in red of course.

Watch how it all came together....

  1. Very cute!! I actually have that same cow head! It was in my Mom and Dad's kitchen when they bought their house and used as a kitchen towel rack. :) I inherited it when I moved out.
