My Creative Space


Slightly blurry pic today but I'm in a hurry and I'm scooting out the door....

This week in my creative space, I was trying to use some of my illustrations to make art prints for my wall.

I only managed to print one (the disco ball on the left top of photo).... before I killed the printer. It's only about six months old and now it won't feed any paper through.

I also learned a very important lesson - do NOT use double sided tape to put artwork on the wall.... it falls straight back off the wall when you least expect it!

The home of my creative space

It looks fabulous Cam. I hope the printer is resurrected soon, I nearly killed mine yesterday printing arty stuff, but it made it through!

Hmmm, yes the printer thing. We had a FABULOUS old laser printer which lasted about 10 years and the last few have croaked very quickly.

The print looks great though.

Suddenly falling artworks are a little disconcerting, aren't they?

Love your art wall, and your disco ball print is great. I hope your printer comes back to life after a rest?

Love the art work on your wall, bummer about the printer! Is it fixable? Double sided tape - I can see it was a good idea, maybe you could request they make it stronger lol I'm sure they'd sell plenty!

Jennifer Rose said...

what a wonderful colourful wall :D
hmmm yeah probably better to use picture hooks...or superglue if you don't plan on moving or don't mind leaving big holes in the wall if you do move :p

Your space looks gorgeous. I made some prints for The Boy and hung them with 3M Velcro strips. One piece goes on the wall and other on the canvas and then they Velcro together. His have been up for two years and never fallen, although you might want to use more than one if the canvas is big.

Love the art wall- so bright and cheery. Hope your printer is up and running again soon so you can finish the job.
