Step 2

Creating a college is fun and easy to do. There is no right or wrong way to place embellishments as collages take on the personality of their creators. A technique we use is to cut out/around embellishments while they are still on the release paper. This keeps the embellishments from sticking and allows movement around the piece.

Step 3

Disassemble the frames. Clean the glass if needed.

Step 4

Select a patterned paper and cut it to an 8 x 8 inch size for the outer pattern. Use the trimmer to cut down the mat that came with the frame to a 7 x 7 inch size. Cut a second printed paper to 5 x 5 inches. Adhere this paper to the reverse of the mat so the print can be seen through the opening. Centered the mat on the 8 x 8 inch background paper, leaving the background paper showing around the mat. Adhere in place with adhesive foam.

Step 5

Tear small segments of patterned paper. Brush with a thin coat of watered down acrylic paint to give a bleached or aged appearance to the paper; let paint dry. Adhere to a selected area of the mat with adhesive dots.

Step 6

Select coordinating chipboard die-cuts and acetate accents. Position accents onto mat. The corners of the mat’s opening are great places to accent.

Step 7

To give texture, adhere a scrap of burlap with an adhesive dot, then layer a coordinating embellishment on top.

Step 8

Reassemble the frame with all layers, mat and glass.

Step 9

Hang all four frames in a linear or grouping fashion.
