OK i have  6 little patches framed in red and blue. How should I hang them? in a row? IN a pattern? Im unsure. I also have ont big 8by 10 frame of patches too. Help me. I would like to make these work with the letter shelves which are way to the sides.

see picture (i drew it myself lol)

Hi flying_babyb -- I'm not sure at all what 'letter shelves' are or how big they might be -- in other words, how much of the wall would be left on either side of them...
and for me it's kinda hard to tell much from the line drawing (not your fault, I'm just not a real- visual-type person) ...

but ...
here are 2 possibilities you could experiment with :

1. Hang the large frame on the side with the shorter set of shelves, & the 6 small ones (in either a 3x2 or a 2x3 rectangular group) on the side with the longer set of shelves.
[[since you didn't say what size the small frames are, though, I'm only assuming that the 6 of them grouped in a rectangle would cover a rather larger area than the 1 large frame would... ?]]

2. If needed & if possible, rearrange the pictures between the two sets of lettershelves (perhaps move all the pix upward slightly?) -- in order to leave enough space below them to accomodate the framed patches together as a group, hanging 'between the 2 lowest lettershelves.'
The overall shape of the patch-frames group could be either balanced or irregular, angled or straight-line, etc etc -- whatever might look most attractive in the space.

Btw, having moved 'A LOT' & also having always had 'A LOT' of stuff to put on walls, hub & I almost always did a test layout of wall groupings on the floor first. And very often that did help 'A LOT', lol.

If for some reason we just couldn't manage to mentally transfer the floor layout to the wall -- which can happen sometimes,especially with  a tight or an unusual-shaped wallspace or with a group of very dissimilar items -- then we'd occasionally have to go so far as to cut out exact shapes/sizes of the wall items from box cardboard or poster paper & use blutack to hold them up on the wall long enough to see what worked.
But, more-commonly we were able to get away with blutacking to the wall an assortment of torn, folded, or taped-together sheets of newspaper which merely 'approximated' the shapes&sizes of whatever we wanted to hang.
