A House Full of Texture : Seth Apter Inspired Mini Album

 

Living Wall

 

I have spent a lot of time recently browsing Pinterest for ideas on adding greenery to my walls. Houseplants are a weakness of mine and it is a struggle not to buy everyone that I pass in the store. I never used to be able to keep plants alive but over time and trial and error, I have had some success. Rescuing plants has becom e a bit of an addiction so much so that my sons have joked that they live in a jungle. Trailing plants are my favorite. There is just something magical about trailing plants and the way the light filters through them. I would love to incorporate some of these living walls into our living space. Not only would it bring green inside but it would help produce cleaner air. Here are some of the inspirational pictures that I have found online.

 

 

I am wanting to make something similar to this house number planter for outside our front door. I have to ask hubby to help with the assembly but I think that this would look great. I love that this planter would serve a purpose aside from decoration. One can never have too many house numbers on display.

 

 

Do you have any living walls in your house? What do you think about this idea?

 

 

Creating the Layouts

 

Book pages stained with Vintage Photo Distress Stain is the base for my pages. I used tissue paper, washi tape, fabric scraps, threads and PaperArtsy Stamps to embellish the pages.

  • I remember the first time I was in the Bonaventure Hotel in LA, their living wall was actually planters with plants draping over the side of the second floor and reaching nearly to the first floor. It was breath taking to see all those plants hanging like that., I don’t seem to have that kind of luck anymore, but you have chosen some lovely inspiration pieces. I have a small pallet like that one with the numbers I put numbers on mine, but in print and with a rocking horse.

    Your journal page is beautiful. I like how you recycled the fabric and the threads, too.

  • Those living walls are amazing. I would like to be more creative with plants. I love growing them, but I am very traditional and don’t seem to be a ble to get out of that mode. Really love the texture in your journal page today also. Happy Sunday. Hugs-Erika
