Frame for collage with your own hands

The word "collage" in French means "sticking". In the so-called fine art technique, when a common basis glued elements of a different color or texture.

But slightly different interpretation of this concept:

Collage - a composition which combines the various images, the combined one common theme, placed side by side or superimposed one on top of another. In other words, it is not just a collection of pictures, the art of creating a whole of several components.

In the modern interior design collage on the wall plays a very important role. Panels, photographs, pictures or sets of pictures can successfully fit into any style. Recently in an article A collage of photos we have studied the question in detail how you can make harmonious composition of your favorite images and examples of several such works. But the collage can be made not only of beautiful frames. the work can be used as paper, fabric, magazine clippings, scraps of newspapers, natural materials, etc.

For living a low-key approach collage with clear forms, the child can experiment with bright colors and decorative elements for the kitchen to stay on wooden boxes with a picture of flowers and plants, and for the country house will suit vintage style.

The next step - is the creation of a basis or framework for a collage. At this point we are today and discuss in more detail. Let's see what we can do with his hands on a few examples.

To get a stylish multiramku collage, enough to show a little imagination, to look around and get to work. So…

  • several prefabricated wooden or plastic framework;
  • pencil for marking;
  • Adhesive suitable for use with a material selected framework;
  • paints;
  • several clips;
  • brush;

  • release the frame from the glass and the rear wall;
  • We begin to lay out the frame on the floor, choosing the most successful version of their location;

  • make a sketch on paper, we enumerate all the frame with a pencil, to avoid confusion during assembly;
  • the joint space frames are also marked with a pencil, as shown in the photo;

  • further sequentially glue frame together. Depending on the number of clips, can be glued the whole song at once or do it one by one. It is important at every stage not remove the clip until the glue dries. Only in this way you can ensure that the framework will be held securely. Remove stains adhesive cloth;

  • When the glue is completely dry (for best results, you can leave the box dosyhat overnight) goes for painting. It is possible to use acrylic paint, stain, aerosols, depending on the desired end result;
  • after painting carefully examine what happened. Perhaps somewhere were not dyed portions or paint shines, and it makes sense to apply a second layer;
  • to complete the process paste glass back (although you can do without them) and take to fill out the final frame.

Designers are advised in such compositions is not limited to still images. Combine pictures drawings, records, add volume with decorative elements (shells, buttons, ribbons, etc.).

Another type collage - this composition of separate elements. In such cases, usually use the framework of the same color or texture. Let's try to make yourself a simple box of cardboard.

  • cardboard or heavy paper. You can use textured cardboard;
  • line;
  • stationery knife;
  • PVA glue.

  • Example template which is shown below, make its size and proportions;

  • cut out the template with scissors or a stationery knife and transfer to the cardboard chosen to create the future frames;

  • Using a ruler and stationery knife, cut the workpiece;

  • we get something like this "semi-finished";

  • glue the corners, giving dry well. Frame is ready.

As it do next depends on the original idea. It is possible to leave in such a form and make a stylish strict collage on the wall in bright colors. You can apply the skills scrapbooking or decoupage. Or simply paint the frame in a color that perfectly fit into the interior of the room.

Children collage - it is a huge field for creativity. Here, almost everything is permissible. Use bright colors, intricate geometry, fun accessories, funny stories. As ideas suggest you make an original frame-puzzle baby pictures.

  • a large sheet of heavy paper (plus one of the same or transparent sheet);
  • several kinds of scrap paper;
  • glue;
  • scissors;
  • cardboard;
  • baby photos;
  • decorations.
  • a large sheet of heavy paper (Whatman perfect) divide the straight lines 12 squares. You can take the workpiece with different proportions and make razlinovku at its discretion;
  • on top of each line draw (by hand) the details of puzzles. Do not make the ridges and valleys are too deep, otherwise there would be little space for photos and decor;

  • We enumerate each element and neatly cut;
  • every detail in turn put on a piece of scrap paper and draw out. Following that, to the adjacent elements (both horizontally and vertically) is not turned identical;
  • We collect our puzzle of color elements face down. Details do not put close to each piece looked as though separately. On the opposite side of sticking transparent or white sheet of the same size. Reinforcing structures by means of paperboard;

  • the rear side of the rope fastened, for which we will hang the collage.

Basis is ready! You can begin to glue photos and embellishments.

And here is another very interesting and easy to design a way to create frames. This collage with your own hands looks great in the kitchen interior.

To create a bulk frame can take a few wooden or cardboard boxes and glue them together (on the principle, which we discussed in the beginning of the article). Or use one large box with partitions inside of the same material.

How to make the most of collage picture frames

But what is the use in photos, if they are locked in dusty photo albums or are stored in the computer's memory? Of course, it is best to fix the framed photos and post them on the wall. But how beautifully and succinctly to place the photo frame? For example, you can turn them into a collage.

Collage need:

- frames of different sizes;

- wood glue or universal glue point;

- mounting plate, hanging fasteners, screws, screwdriver.

First we need to combine the frames around so that they touch each other in at least two places.

Then, using an adhesive glue frames alternately to each other. You can use a special wood glue or universal glue seconds. Much of a difference in the strength of the bonding is not noticeable. But the palpable difference in time gluing: glue dries point per minute, while the carpenter's glue has to dry not menne twenty minutes.

When all the frames are fixed and represent the overall collage, you need to fix them. For this we turn over our entire composition face down and fasten with screws fastening plates so that one plate was attached to not less than two frames.

If screws are chosen correctly, and their length is greater than the thickness of the frame, they can punch through the tree.

In the case where the selected unsuitable screws and the time or desire to replace them there, you can use conventional shaybochki, and in their absence, and the usual pieces of cardboard. This will raise the screw and its length will be short enough so as not to penetrate through the frame.

When all the frames are fastened, can only attach a pendant fixture and fill the resulting photo collage.

On the wall frames to fix, you can use the same screws, only bigger.

This unusual collage of photo frame is perfect for any decor. And the most expensive and beautiful images instead of collecting dust "In the vaults" will delight you and your guests on a daily basis.
