Every once in a while I have this weird urge to spruce things up in the house. This need for change can be as slight as rearranging furniture in a room or as intense as ripping out tile in a bathroom. What can I say, my mood fluctuates! However, one of my favourite and easiest things to do for a quick change up is switching my wall art. It really does make all the difference.
Let’s face it, finding wall art to match your room is a hard task to do and not to mention can add up very quickly at checkout. Thankfully I found a quick and inexpensive way to keep my wall art looking fresh all year long without it looking too much like a DIY project.
The secret tool: DCWV Printed Cardstock, Decor Noir
This booklet is filled with 48 sheets of goodness! Found in the scrapbook section of Michaels, this premium cardstock has it all. Most craft store will carry these printed cardstock booklets with different pattern, colours and images. The choices are endless. I specifically love this one from DCWV, Decor Noir for it neutral palette of black, white, grey and gold foil. The best part about it is you can’t mess up. Pop it in a frame or adhere it to a canvas and ta-dah, you’ve got yourself some art that looks and feels like professional looking art/photography. For any of you thinking about creating a gallery wall and are having trouble choosing what to fill your frames up with, this is your perfect solution. You can mix and match any of the prints.
Here is a peak at some of the patterns included in the booklet
You can use any sort of frame or canvas for this project but I had some frames that I had bought that I wanted to incorporate into our powder room. All I did was use double sided tape around the back edging of the frame.
Once you have it on, peal the backside of the tape away.
and adhere your cardstock to the tape.
That simple! Since you have 48 pages in one booklet, you can either switch up when your bored of your images or have fun creating more wall art for the rest of your home!

This is awesome!
Are you saying what I think I am reading..you framed some beautiful cardstock? What a great idea! I thought at first that you had taken the photos or found some old prints and framed them..Like you I have drawers full of old picture frames..nothing matches. When our son gives us a photo, he buys wooden frames and I don’t care for wood frames, but by golly, this makes me rethink about using those wood frames. and I’ve got many cans of spray paint in garage cabinet that I can use too. But I like your idea of using pictorial cardstock.. Will have to check the cardstock section out at my local craft store sometime. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
Oh! yea, I have used a DCWV paper for my cup-tray. It was printed beautiful floral (vintage roses) . I just made it to avoid the boring serving tray design. After few months I like to add new papers as well. It is really fun and simple to apply…..
