An eclectic wall collage

As mentioned at the end of this post, I had plans to put up a wall collage on the far wall in my bedroom.
I can’t say it’s 100% complete, but it’s at a point now, where I can say it’s ‘pretty much close to completion’...although, I do foresee this as being an everlasting project, that might (just might) end up occupying the entire wall.
A couple design blogs that I’ve read, claim that there’s some kind of formula to putting one of these things up.  Some people lay out their frames, trace them out onto newspaper, mark and measure the walls, so as to get it ‘just right’.  Others buy hundreds of frames in varying sizes, lay out their designs using only a handful of them, and return the unused frames.  Some people work in teams - have one person hold up the frame, while the other stands back and gives either the thumbs up or the thumbs down.
Wanna know my formula?  
zero measuring + no use of a level + hold frame up + tilt head a couple times + looks good = hammer nail into wall and hope for the best.
...and in the event that it didn’t look good, I pulled the nail out, and put another hole in the wall, wherever it DID look good.
Do I have a ton of holes in the walls behind all of those frame?  “LOADS” would be a slight exaggeration... but yes, there are several “ghost holes”.
Do I care?  Absolutely not.  Because one day, when I decide to sell this house and move into my dream home in Illinois (:P) I will have to patch and repaint these walls anyway.  So there.
And now, for your viewing pleasure:
