  1. Absolutely inspiring!

  2. What do you use to attach the art t the craft paper that you hang on the wall? I've alway shad problem with things stayign on this kind of paper.

  3. Blue sticky tack. From Duckie brand. I glue the projects down to the paper then hang on tack strips with blue tack.

  4. Your displays are lovely. I believe displaying art well is essential. Done badly, can destroy it.
