Heart collage

Marie Claire Idées Janvier 2010, originally uploaded by Vicky Tate.

Finally it's here!!

Two years ago I saw a very nice heart shaped collage in Marie Claire Idees and the idea was born!

At that time we just moved to our new appartement so that seemed like a good decorative idea for a big grey wall of our bedroom. I love photography and I've been taking photos like a crazy japanese tourist (no offense) for the past 3 years so I gathered remarkable collection of my own piece-of-arts.

I picked my favorite family photos, printed them in B&W and framed them in black.
So the pile of 38 photos were waiting in our storage room and collecting dust for...almost 1 year!

Last weekend, two great procrastinators - my husband and me, decided to finish the "project" so here are the steps of our "hard" work...

  My husband in action.

Frame by frame...and finally the last 38th frame was hanged on the wall.

After 2 hrs of non stop work our wall has finally got some LOVE.

At the end...I have to say, last night we slept much better in our "love" bed and dreamt of our next project that hopefully won't take as long as this one...

Take care!


  1. Where did you get the picture frames?

  2. Could you tell me the length and width of the entire arrangement??
