La Galerie d' Ashley

Yup the Gallery of Ashley is up!  In fact it has been up for about a week, and I am so happy with how everything turned out!
This is the first time I've actually had a grouping of my work up on the wall!  I know crazy right! If you've read my blog for a little while than you know that I was an art major in college, and that I took all sorts of different classes!   In case you missed my last post about my photo wall I mentioned mixing in some photos I took and developed old school, in a darkroom.  These photos are so special to me!

OK, so now on to how I got everything up!
Usually I take the inserts out of the photos frames  and use them to figure out the placement and spacing on the wall.....
.......................... I made a mistake and threw out the rest of the inserts, so I just tape the larger one on the wall,  and used that to get the large frame placed, then added the rest of the smaller frames around it.  

It did take a little bit of trial and error, but I think everything turned out great!

I put everything up right above my new sofa, Karl, which has been my favorite addition to my living room!
There is also plenty of room for me to add more images and frames later as I find unique pieces to add.  I definitely wanted to keep everything organic  and flow-y when figuring out a lay out, so that nothing would seem out of place or unbalanced if I added another image!  I think I came up with the perfect layout for that!  

One of my favorite black and white photos I took in Hawaii, and developed in a darkroom!
I have wanted to display this for years, and this is the first time I framed it and put it up!

Here's one of my Kate Spade inspired  pieces!    Also, the black and white photo was developed by using a unique process in the darkroom, I actually had a version of this one published while I was in college! 

Do you recognize these ones? 

I'm loving how everything turned out!
