I believe I've used so many adjectives in describing my project that I was not very clear about what I actually did -- I hung pictures. It sounded much more grandiose above.
My mom had a pack of 15 wall hangings and a blank wall and told me to go crazy. First, I laid out all the picture frames and tried to figure out how I wanted them to look. I took up the hallway and did a scaled down version of what it would look like on the wall.
It's a little tough to see in the pictures, but this is the wall that goes up to the second floor of my parents house. Fourth, I hammered in a nail about an inch from the top and in the middle of the tissue paper. Once I tore the tissue paper away, all I had to do was hang the frame!
Of course, because I was hanging these pictures over a staircase, I had to be a little creative with how I hung the frames! All mothers reading this blog might want to avert your eyes to save yourselves from heart palpitations!

I wanted the picture frames to be even across the top but then drop down and stair-step up. I was pretty excited with the end product!
