Simple Collage Frame

Hello and good morning to you, This is Dora, and I hope you are in great spirits this morning!! We are going to build a simple family frame with the square Printer Tray Frame.

This will be super easy and quick. Makes a wonderful gift for someone you love or a close friend. The tray comes with the back piece and three layering pieces. For future reference, we are using one of the layering pieces at a time when adding embellishments or photos to give a staggered look. Hope you enjoy and let's get started!! 

Here is a close up of the final frame....


For this project, I did not use the acrylic piece that comes with it. I left it out, because I wanted everyone to see the depth in the frame. 

First I took the very top layering piece and painted it bronze. Very easy - very simply.


Next - I took the back piece and a sheet of 12x12 scrapbook paper (my favorite autumn colors), measured, cut, and glued it to the back piece. This will show through in the spaces without photos. 


Here I have chosen the photos and the cut-out images from the paper pad to add some autumn flare to the piece. I have arranged them in the boxes I would like to see them in. The first (not the one we painted) layering piece, I have glued to the background. Before adding the next one, I am making sure this is where I want the other pieces. Once they are set, I add a matt to the back of the photos I want on this section and glue them to the layering piece. I them add one of the cut-outs in the top left corner. 


As you can see with the photos, I am doing the layering in stages to give it that depth. Now that the top left, top center, and bottom center are in place, I glue another layering piece (not the one we painted) on top. Once that is dried, I now add photos to the middle left and the middle right. Along with those, I am have added an image cut-out on the bottom right corner, to balance out the frame. 


When everything is ready to go, I have now glued down the final layering piece, yes now the one we painted lol !! I have added some clips to ensure it stays in place!


The final step is to embellish the frame and you may do so however you like. I have kept this simple and neat. Just a few autumn embellishments to bring the colors together. I have it hanging in my Livingroom right now and love how it looks against the beige colored walls.
