Artsy Walls: Kayte from Love Forever

Kayte from the Love Forever blog wants to share her budding collection of paint-by-numbers in her living room. Is this fun, or what?

“It’s a work in progress, but the goal is to have the paint-by-numbers all built up on the far side of the wall so it looks like a big explosion. I thought it would be a cool way to hang art so the art is valued more for the collective installation over the single piece. I love repetitions of things!” – Kayte

Artsy Walls: Marta Inspires!

I loved hearing from Marta today, a graphic designer and collage artist based in Salt Lake City. Her photos made me smile, I felt an instant connection to her work. You know that feeling, right? The warmth, the tingle, a sense that this person would be your friend if you met them in real life. Here’s a glimpse of what inspires her, starting with her inspiration board – something ANYONE can do so easily, and it will really make you happy once you have, promise. Here’s what Marta has to say about her inspiration and work.


“I love the idea of spreading ideas through photos. This is my art studio where I create journals, collages, cards, and do graphic design (my real job). Above is a photo of my giant inspiration board hanging above my desk, some of my favorite tools, and my desktop, mid-collage creation.” – xox, marta

Psst: Here’s Marta’s website, the journals she creates and sells, her blog, and her flickr sets.

Thank you, Marta! :)

Artsy Walls: Kristin’s Collection

Reader Kristin wrote in with a few images that really caught my eye, especially her cork cabinets. Take it away, Kristin!

“I’m a renter and can’t paint my kitchen cabinets so I recently covered them in cork to get rid of the 70’s vibe and to get the most out of the small space. It’s the perfect place to hang clippings and small pieces of art work although the cork is so new this is all that I’ve put up so far. Also, a grouping of prints and posters in the living room — the smaller two are from Etsy and the flock print is from Good Shape Design.” – Kristin.

Thanks Kristin for sharing. I wish I had a link for Kristin so readers could track her down on the web, but she didn’t include any with her submission so for now, we’ll only know her as Kristen with the cool cork cabinets. :)
