If you're anything like me, the thought of a putting together a photo gallery collage is overwhelming and daunting. That's why I put it off for years, and years, and…years. Well, I finally get to check this project off my to-do list! The final result came out even better than I imagined, mostly because it’s filled with the beautiful faces I know and love.
I'll mention all the materials used, where to buy them and provide the artwork I created as a free download.
Since all our family photos were over two years old I had the choice of filling this space with older/classic photos of us OR try to take new photos. I chose the latter and planned a short notice, quick, DIY photo shoot on a free Saturday. Couldn’t be more thrilled with how they turned out. I used the newest photos in the large frames and saved the older/classic photos for the smaller frames.
Here's a list of materials I used:
- 4 Large 19 3/4 x 19 3/4in Stromby silver frames from Ikea
- 4 - 5x7in, 4 - 4x6in, ornate white frames in different styles from Marshalls - similar frames can be found here and here.
- 1 decorative wooden box with LOVE print from Marshalls
I added the artwork “Kind Heart, Fierce Mind & Brave Spirit” to the photo before printing. Here’s a free download of the artwork if you're interested.
Here’s a free download of the artwork I created of “You are capable of amazing things”.
This is an up-close view of the ornate frames.
