The first idea is to draw attention to a picture by framing it, BUT keeping the frame larger than the picture. This works great when you have a small picture and it is getting lost on a layout. The frame will take up more space on the page and act as an embellishment and bring focus to the picture.
The second idea is to use a frame as a layering embellishment. It does not really frame anything or bring anything in to focus, rather it is purely used to layer and embellish.
The final idea is to create a grid with the fames and put photos or embellishments in the frames. On this layout some embellishments went on top of the frames, while others went on the inside.
A bonus idea is to use a frame on a card!
I hope some of these ideas have inspired you to get out some of those frames and put them to work. Thank you so much for stoping by. I hope you have a beautiful new year filled with fun, love and of course lots of happy crafting!
Using foil frames from the paper collection. I fussy cut them out and layered on paper. I also used a ceramic frame.
