The first thing to do when creating a picture frame collage is to choose where you want to put it, and there are a few things to keep in mind:

There are several ways to plan your picture frame arrangement, but actually seeing the wall blocked off is the best way to visualise the space.

Once you have your collage outlined on the wall, you need to decide which photos you want to include in the gallery. Then, stick tiny pieces of Prestik to the backs of the photos and arrange them in the collage outline to get the layout you want.

To get the size for each frame, you need to measure each photo. Be as precise as possible, and ensure you measure consistently from the outside edges of the photos.

Make a note of which space on the collage goes with which photo. Then, either use a pencil to write on the masking tape for reference or take a photo on your phone and mark it up digitally.

Now that you have all the sizes, it’s time to plan your frames. You may be able to find enough suitable frames in shops or craft markets. However, sites like www.framesonline.co.za and www.framedepot.co.za allow you to order customised frames online so that you can match your frames to your exact specifications. This means your collage will be tailored to your space – perfectly fitting in size and layout.

With a program like Photoshop, you can digitally preview your gallery. Take a photo of your blocked gallery, then overlay screenshots of the frames you’re designing to see what the finished collage will look like.

Once your frames arrive, it’s time to finalise your gallery.

Once your gallery is in place, wipe the pictures with a microfibre cloth to remove any fingerprints and dust particles. Enjoy the process of collaging and achieve the best outcome.
