What’s on your wall? I bet you got photographs of your family.
How about your dog? Your dog definitely deserves a space on our wall.
In my home, Mickey Mouse and Michael Jordan have their own wall and you bet I got my own wall. Well, multiple walls as I am going to have another one in the office room. My mom loves the beauty of black n white photos. She collected several black n white photos of me from joining the Sunday Black n White hop and wanted to create a Black n White photo wall of me. One of her favorite black n white photo of me was taken last February. We shared it and titled our post “Standing Strong Like A Pillar.”
When Printcopia contacted us if we are interested to print a photo on canvas, mom immediately though of the black n white wall she was meaning to do in the office room. Printcopia can convert your color photo into black n white but there’s an additional fee. My mom just simply uploaded a black n white photo and it worked fine. This is not the first time I had my photos printed on canvas so we knew what to expect in ordering/processing. Mom always orders the canvas image to wrap around the sides of the frame. It is good especially if the photo has lots of negative space around the edges. The canvas print looks lighter than the original photos but changed once placed on the wall. We are very pleased and Lots of Golden Thanks to Printcopia for the inspiration of our Black n White Dog Art Wall.
How To Display Black n White Photos?
Find a WALL. The color of the wall is the vital element in displaying your photos. For example: your display will be bold and dramatic if you use dark color frames on a lighter wall.
1) Draw/Sketch out how you will display your photos. Mark the middle and that will serve as the midpoint of your 1st photo placement. The key is to treat the wall space as one large picture, with separate elements. Alignment is also important. Many like symmetrically display but to have a clean classy look a straight line perception of the frames is an option.
2) Gather your PHOTOS and find FRAMES. There are many ready made black or white frames you can find at the craft stores. You can also use/add a matting in your frame. Just a rule mom learned when she took a framing class: Frames are not a necessity when you are displaying your black and white photos. If you opt to skip the frames, don’t skip the matting. Matting serves as a frame for your photos. In our DIY, we just use matting.
3) Layout your sketch with the actual photos/frames on a flat surface. Long table or on the floor is a good place.
4) Hang your display on the wall. You may use a blue painters tape first. Adjust the photo placement as needed and necessary. Then once you accomplished the display you want, you can use hanging strips.
5) Admire your black n white wall art.
Golden LOVE it!
Mom said I got more black n white photos and for sure she’ll be adding more to this wall. Majority of the photos mom selected were taken when we lived in HI last year. One of the photo (upper right) was taken at my favorite Thompson Road just after Miss Oprah greeted us.
Hope you enjoyed our DIY Black N White Dog Wall Art.
