Hung together in a group, the pieces make a visual statement that is often more interesting than just one or two large pieces of art. Use black-and-white photos, pictures from a magazine, beach finds, or anything else that you like the look of and want to showcase. To make the pieces work together, link them by colour palette or by theme. If there isn't any such common element, use identical frames to display your treasures... Wide mats will make them look even more impressive. 

The most unexpected things can be art. Just 
use your imagination and have an open mind.

but would be equally happy to put it up on my
Do you have any other budget-friendly tips?
