Inspiration's Everywhere: Free People

I was walking around today and stopped into the Free People clothing store in Union Square. They have this great do-it-yourself art display on the wall. All you need is paint, cardboard, rhinestones, and a fabric of your choice. I love this look!!!!!! The Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, and Free People team always have the most amazingly creative visuals.

The above image shows a wall of cardboard art. They have it displayed all over the store. I just love the idea. Some of their clothing right now is sequined. The visual team must have been inspired by the clothing.

This design consists of white paint and silver spray paint and glued on rhinestones.

A close up: 4 wooden slats nailed together to make the frame with the cardboard fastened to the top of the frame with a staple gun.

This design is not as easy to accomplish! If you are skilled with an exacto knife, you could attain this look! Better make sure you have a lot of exacto blades on hand though! This is four layers thick and the dimension of it is beautiful! (1) the wooden frame, (2) cardboard wrapped in sequined fabric, (3) cardboard cut into a leafy design, (4) another leafy design as the top layer.

Choose your own fabric, materials, paint, cut out design and you've got your own art wall! Stop into a local Free People soon, so you can see what it looks like in person. It's really fun!
