Pretty Paper

I have been wanting to post about this affordable art find for a while now. Isn't it so difficult to find large, affordable artwork? I was looking for a large piece of artwork to fill an empty wall in my bedroom and came across a cheap, yet chic, idea for this over sized, empty space. 

 I found this stunning marbled paper on another blog- the blogger had framed a huge piece of paper and hung it as art- brilliant! The best part was that each sheet of paper was hand marbled, making each one very unique. Did I mention they were only $5.95 each? What a steal!

I immediately bought and framed two to hang in my bedroom with large, chrome poster frames I found at Michael's (also cheap). I love the bold, graphic shapes uniquely created in each paper. I went with two different colors of paper for contrast. These beauties are made by Paper Mojo and are the Pirouette Marbled Paper choices- there are other marbled paper options on the site, but these are the prettiest and most graphic to me. They are 24" x 36" in size, however, Paper Mojo can cut to size; although I highly suggest the original size to get the bold graphic look. 

I bought and framed a total of three to do as a series one day over a sofa, but for now, the third one is in my home office:
(sorry for the bad quality iPhone photos)

Here are some better pics of the color choices. The first one is one that I have and is sold out for now, but the other choices are just as eye-catching.
