Scrapbooking Tips: Frame Your Photos

Hi dear crafty friends!

Today on Scrapbooking Tips: Frame Your Photos! Photos are the main element on a layout. That is what tells the story and sets the mood for the design. So the photo needs to pop out and be the most visible element on the page! 



Scrapbooking Tips: Frame Your Photos

One of the ways to make your photo pop is to frame it. The most easy and well known method is to create a mat around the photo but I have a few more ideas to frame your photos:

1. Arrange embellishments around the photo and create clusters that slightly overlap the edges of the photo. The embellishments will draw your eyes to the photo!



2. Use an embellishment like a window to frame the photo. This embellishment can be from wood, chipboard or resin as long as it has some height to it. The 3D effect will draw your eye to the photo!



3. Add another photo in the background to make the top photo pop out. use one black and white photo and add a colored photo under it to enhance the contrast between them. That will frame your photo and make it pop!



4. Add a large mat around the photo.Instead of matting the photo with a paper piece thatis slightlylarger than the photo mat it with a much larger pieceof paper and add embellishments as well.



5. Use elementson the paper itself asframes for your photos. In this page I used the windows on the paper. I cut them to open to the sides like windows and added photos.



I hope these Scrapbooking Tips: Frame Your Photos gave you some fun and creative ideas how to frame your photos and make them pop!
