Fabric Wall Art- Have It Your Way!!

Looking for wall art in an unusual color combination. Just can't find it, make it yourself. A great cheap ( come on, if I'm suggesting it, it has to be CHEAP) way to put some color, YOUR color on your walls is to use fabric.  I know it's not a new idea but just in case you'd forgotten, here it is.  My new kitchen has white walls with silver hardware on a gazillion cabinets and black appliances. The go to color for black and white is usually red. No way, that's too Hobby Lobbyish! No offense, I like HL but, I just wanted a different look. So I reverted back to my favorite color, pink. Not a soft pink but a vibrant, full bodied pink. I then decided to look for fabric that had 4 basic colors, pink, green, white and black. The unifying element in this wall art would be black square frames.  It took a couple of trips to a variety of Goodwill stores but I finally had enough square frames in different sizes.  Here is the finished collection, please pardon the glare, still working on my photo skills.

It's almost an unspoken challenge. LOL
