Collage Frame

While I am in repurpose mode, I should post a project Scott just finished.  

Before: A gold frame that housed a Dutch print, left behind in the garage by former owners
After: A wall collage with all of our favorite pictures 
Silver metallic paint (left over from painting kids' play kitchen), custom matting, new glass, and Scott's creativity completed the transformation.

Marie,
that is so beautiful. Nigel has been after me to put together a collage of pictures for one particular wall in our dining area. I love what scott has done and might try to do something similar, though I am positive not as good!

Wow! This is such a great project. I like the way the photos have a boarder around them, looks very professional :)

Kim,
I AM positive you will come up with a beautiful collage. And it is the precious pictures that make it so special, too.

How are you doing with your shirt? I am waiting for pictures!!!

夫婦そろってCreativeだよね。カラーと白黒の組み合わせが絶妙でいいね。これは大きな一枚のポスターなのでしょうか。業者に頼んだの?

実はプリンターで6枚づつプリントして両面テープで貼ってたよ。そういうところがローテクでいいでしょう。仕事でそういうのを印刷できる機械があるんだけどね。使わなかったみたい。

This is great! it is hard to display so many pictures without causing clutter. I like this way - is it printed on one sheet? or seperate photos mounted together?

Alison,
Scott printed the photos out on 4x6 photo paper. He went through a lot of acid free double sided tape to put it together.
