Tiny Art Week // My Ecclectic Gallery Wall

small art

On a number of occasions I’ve mentioned that I have a special affinity for tiny art, and I’ve even posted a few tiny art projects. I think I may just secretly be one of those people who squeal with delight at a miniature anything (I certainly was mothered by such a person), because tiny art really just rings my bell. I think what really knocks me over about tiny art is that it’s unusual, and you usually have to take a step in to discover the details. It’s like a little secret right on the wall–whether it be art, a sentimental trinket, or just something pretty.

So this week is tiny art week! Today I’ll show you a few of the tiny art moments in my home, and for the rest of the week I’ve lined up a few choice guest posters, plus a tiny little frame tutorial–perfect for showcasing your special little somethings. All of you can participate by Instagramming or Tweeting your favorite tiny art, making some, or spying any cool tiny art out and about. Use the hashtag #tinyart, and spread your tiny art wings!

Feast your eyes on the Tribe family gallery wall.  I love a good eclectic grouping of pictures, and this particular cluster is rockin’ a lot of tiny art. I think the variance of large and small adds depth, texture and interest to the arrangement.  It’s definitely the focal point of the room, and always a trusty conversation starter for new guests. I love all the pictures here, but the tiniest ones are my favorites!

Come back for a visit tomorrow! Caitlin from Hue and Hum will be sharing her tiny art tip, so hold on to yer hat, and I’ll see you then!

Thanks Kate, I had a few leftover scraps from a shirt I sewed for my girl, so I hot glued that bad boy to a frame and called it good!

Thanks Mandie!! It’s actually a project from my fabric flower ebook! It doesn’t work anymore, but that don’t bother me!

I love so many things on that wall. The clock, the tree, the llama… I would ask about all of them! Conversation starters for sure.

I love this so much. So much that I just pinned it onto my “dream home” pinterest board. I am officially hiring you as my future interior designer, you are amazing, I particularly love that hand drawn picture of the temple.

I am SO flattered that I made the “dream home” board!! The temple print, and actually all the watercolors in the gallary (i think I have 3!) are all from birds of Ashmae, who is a local artist that I really love. Here’s her etsy shop!

I love it! You’re right – anything small is just adorable. I hope that means you love short people too. 😉 One tall neighbor of mine once asked me “where I fit on the dwarf scale” I’m 5’2″! we still love telling that story.
But back to you – great art wall! You really have an eye for style 🙂
