How To Create Your Own Wall Art Gallery; With Canon!

I have a confession to make.  I am a picture hoarder.  I take the pictures, if I’m feeling particularity energetic and motivated, I even print the pictures.  What I never seem to get around to doing?  Hanging the pictures!  Why?  Why, can’t I seem to get my pictures from my smart phone and camera into frames and on to the walls? I desperately want to have a place to show off and enjoy my photos.  Those precious moments in time.  I would love a wall in my home to house my collection of pictures that will remind me of how lucky I am and make me smile.  One that might feature my girls showing off their true sense of adventure; holding hands, laughing and leaping from a bridge in the Turks and Caicos.

Or my series of stunning pictures from my 40th Birthday in Paris.  They are laying dormant, wasted, just eating up space on my hard drive!

So many memories, family candid shots, living their lives in my smart phone and computer instead of out in the world!  I even know which wall I want to hang these photos in my home.  The thing is, I just can’t seem to translate these ideas in my head, into one organized work of art.

Then I was introduced to the Canon PIXMA PRO printer and realized I was approaching this problem all wrong!  Have a peek!  

Here’s How to Create Your Own Wall Art Gallery:

 

Eureka! A method and an answer!  How to take my photos and create a Wall Art Gallery of my very own! It’s not so hard when you have a plan and the correct tools, I’ve just been over thinking it.  First up, I need to pick my favourite photos and get on with it.  The other big take away for me, I need to start with one picture,  an anchoring piece, to draw attention to the entire collection.  It’s also helpful to create a perimeter and rely on some painters tape as a guide!  This takes the guess work out of it.  Invaluable advice for a visual person like me! Then I  need to go for it.  No looking back and remember that with the Canon PIXMA PRO printer, I can always change and update my collage, any time I want to!

Are you feeling inspired?  Me too! It’s time to create our own Wall Art Gallery and put those memories front and centre!

  1. Fantastic ideas! I’d love to be able to blow up some of our family and travel pictures and it looks to me as if the Cannon PIXMA Pro Printer is exactly what we need!

  2. Ive just started printing pictures. I have 5 years backed up on my computers. Im loving trying to figure out how and where to hang them, gallery walls, etc. And yes, I use my canon. 🙂

  3. Great idea! I have lots of pictures on my computer that would make great wall art, I just have never got around to doing anything with them. But first I would need a new printer, will have to check out the Canon PIXMA PRO printer!

    This is great !! I take so many pictures, and they all just sit on my camera until I end up deleting them to make room for the next set that will sit there :/ vicious circle !

  7. I have so many photos I would love to display on my walls.. I really need to start doing this, instead of letting them sit in folders on my computer.
