After we moved into this house, it took me a good long time to put together my gallery walls. You might get a good idea of how long from this post and this post. These posts also happen to be two years old, as is all the art hanging in our frames.
Of course I do and will always cherish the photos and prints that made the gallery cut in 2012, but every now and then a girl’s gotta change her perspective, and maybe just maybe put up a recent photo of her child. Just a thought.
While I take another two years to narrow down our family photos, enter free art printables. At first I started collecting these links with the thought that at the very least they would be good placeholders in a pinch.
At the very most they are beautiful all on their own. I took the liberty of creating a few gallery walls so you can envision it for yourself.

I might be running the risk of hipster overload here, what with the trendiness of the pineapples, ampersands and flamingoes. I don’t care, though, because it’s all so cohesive and fun.
Hey, at least I didn’t put a bird on it. At least … not a typical bird. Flamingoes are the giraffes of the bird world.
A few things to note: The gold deer print is actually a wallpaper design for computers. Wallpaper freebies are good sources for free prints because they’re typically pretty large and creative cropping makes for pretty pictures.
Also, prints that come vertically can also look cool horizontally. I rotated the vintage egg print in this example. The feathers could’ve been horizontal, too.

Here’s another quick tip: When creating a gallery wall, it’s nice to break up illustrations with words/quotes/text prints for visual interest.
