Minted word art: Smile

I received free product from Minted but was not required to write a post in return. All opinions, off-kilter styling and messy dressers are mine. 😉 This post contains affiliate links.

I’ve mentioned once or twice that I have a thing for word art. And a thing for gallery walls. And a thing for word art in a gallery wall. So obviously the next step was to create a gallery wall with nothing but word art, right?

I had already collected a couple of prints from The Crooked Nook and Petit Ink, so when Minted contacted me to see if I’d be interested in a couple of their pieces, I knew I had to jump into some more word art. And there are so many adorable choices!

I ended up ordering her two favorites, framed.

Now, in my head, we were on the prowl for white frames in different textures (like maybe this and this). I thought they’d pop against the purple wall we were planning to hang the prints on and I also thought it would help tie all of the prints together without being overly matchy. My opinionated little doll face had other ideas though. She caught sight of a section of 8×10 glitter frames and our search was immediately squashed. Her little heart was set.

But right now, this is what the wall looks like. I think we’ll add a couple of small pieces to make it feel more even, but we like the off kilter. Probably because we’re a little off kilter.

Are you guys into word art? Or do you prefer more traditional pictures?
