This is it with spaces in between each block, which is how it will be hung. It's just sitting on the floor right now.
This is my artistic photo :)
This shows how the edges of each block are painted a different color just to add to the whimsical look and feel of it. (Turquoise, dark purple, burnt red, saffron yellow, light green, burnt orange, light pink, light purple, aqua)
- I didn't want to have to hang 9 individual canvases. 1. because then i have 9 holes in my wall. 2. it would take forever to get them all lined up. and 3. if i ever wanted to move them somewhere else, i have try to rehang 9 different canvases and try to get them all lines up.
- SO, in order to avoid this, I used a strip of aluminum metal (not foil) and stabled it down the backs of each column. MAKE SURE EACH ROW IT SPACED EVENLY SO THEY WILL HANG LINED UP.
- The reason I used aluminum is because I first tried ribbon, which mostly worked, but then when you try to hang it, the bottom one tilts out too much, and I didn't like how it looked. So I needed something stiffer. So my dad had some aluminum strips he used for trim on the outside of our house. It worked perfectly.
- Then we drilled holes in the top of the strips so we could hang them.
And here it is hung on the wall.
