Today was a really nice day so I got my husband to do some honey do's for me.
(Left) He hung in a corner my makeshift, non lighting, chandelier which will have ATC's, tags, cards, etc. that either I have received or made myself.
I purchased minature plastic clothes pins which will clip the art to the (Art-delier) oooe, that sounds a bit French and French is in so "make your Art-delier soon.
(Right). Although it might be hard to identify hangs a string of Chinese lanterns with printing on the outside of the rice paper hanging once again from the ceiling. On the cord in between the lanterns I have clipped art work .... I realize that because these two new items are on the same wall, and at different heights I have to add one more hanging item. It looked really pretty tonight when I went downstairs and just lit the lanterns so I am pleased. I prefer atmospheric lighting vs harsh overhead. I may decide to be a bit more artistic with the lanterns (now that I have seen pictures) and maybe have a lantern somehow hover beside or above some of the artwork to illuminate.... I need to go down there and work, or just sit to see how I can make the change. This will eliminate the hanging effect and will be the only off set I will need.
It is so much fun to have "art in progress" with this room and I think eventually (maybe by spring) I will know exactly what direction my art is going and I will be able to get rid of a LOT of books and supplies.
