Office: Gallery Wall – Creative Inspiration

When we moved into our new house we I immediately claimed the room with the largest window and most sunlight for my office. Since I freelance I need a space to actually work but I also use it as my craft space.

Above my workspace I created a gallery wall. It’s been a long time coming since I started my office makeover…then we moved and I had to start all over in a new space.

But here is where I do most of my work:

Pink Workspace

The entire space isn’t totally finished since my non-essential projects are at a stand-still for now and my other desk has become a temporary first-aid station.

Obviously I started writing this months ago since my calendar still said May…it currently says June so I’m going to assume I took this midway thru last month. The calendar is from Sugar Paper.

Creative Workspace

I feel like it’s constantly changing as I find new things to frame.

3D Gold Paper Heart Art

I made this gold 3D heart with my Silhouette Cameo and the pattern that can be found here. After just looking at that page I want to make a whole bunch more of them because they’re so adorable. I love framing things without glass and having them come out into the space. Eventually I’d like to make my feather artwork something more dimensional.

Office Gallery Wall, DIY Painting

I love the Coco & Hearts paintings by Jen Ramos but they’re always sold out so I made my own inspired-by brush-stroke painting. I actually make about 4 and then just framed the one I liked best.

Herringbone Painting, White Owl, Gold Ampersand

The ampersand art was inspired by Two Twenty One’s Glitter State (although I just used my cutter to cut it out of glitter paper).

Gold Ampersand

The quote is a good reminder especially to me since I always tend to take on too much.

You Can Do Anything But Not Everything

The herringbone art was just a fun painting I created to take a break from working on the computer.

 The top print says “I never met a color I didn’t love” and can be purchased from etsy seller Pencil Shavings Studio (I made mine).

Office Gallery Wall, DIY Painting

This was a mixed media piece I created to remind myself to take creative risks.

Watercolor, The worst enemy to creativity is self doubt

Gold Dog Tape Dispenser

My gold dog tape dispenser stands guard near my polka dot pencil cup.

DIY Nailhead Bulletin Board

My DIY Bulletin board and my degree (which I just framed…10 years after receiving it) hang to the left of my workspace.

Creative Workspace

So that’s one wall of the office, maybe I’ll put all the junk I moved off my desk back and photograph the rest eventually…when it’s clean…my husband just laughed.

    From the looks of this, which I was finally able to access, I believe you can do everything. Even with a broken arm. So proud of you honey!
