A sketch of Paris, letters from my beloved, a post card that was just to pretty to throw away, and photos that share a story of a journey. I’ve collected mementos along the way from trips and just everyday things I’ve found. But what to do with all these to beautiful to part with keep sakes? Don’t you just love how the above photos mixes art, sculpture, photography and unique ways of framing all together. And it still looks amazing!
Mixing art and unique items with personal photography is not easy. How can all these what seemly look random items come together and make a cohesive design?
First keep the color palette simple. You still want your eye to be drawn to one specific element first and then move thru the composition.
Mix in textures can be an easier softer way of adding in something special. Different frames or a small sculpture.
Don’t over think it to much. Bring together things that you love and start laying them out on the floor. Move things around until you feel like it’s pleasing to the eye.
I love how this composition has a mat with text, maybe a favorite poem or song lyrics. Some photos are framed others are simply mounted.
