Design Idea: The "Misplaced" Frame
This is basically thinking outside the box when it comes to frames. Here are just a few examples:
Use a skewed frame over the photo
Since these photos were a bit barmy anyway (from our Royal Wedding Street Party) I thought it would look even more wacky if the frames were all over the place. Kit is Fun and Games by Lindsay Jane. You can use any size frame for this. When you have the frame not quite on the photo like this you might want to anchor it with something otherwise it can look like it's about to slip off the page. You can see I placed the squiggles on top of the frames in this one. Go through the slideshow at the bottom of the page and spot how the skewed frames are anchored in various layouts.
Isolate one part of the photo with a frame
In this case - my Dad! The photo is him walking across the tidal causeway to Burgh Island in Devon.I simply added a small frame over him. Kit is a mixture of Lindsay Jane kits.
Keep the photos completely outside the frames
I like this page because the photos are not much to look at but the page makes them special. They're important because they're rare photos of my grandparents. The page is a quickpage from Natali Designs, one of her seaside sets. The slideshow at the bottom of the page has several more examples of pictures outside the frames.
An ornate frame on a plain photo
When I say plain photo I mean not too busy! This very ornate framing in a quickpage by Laura Burger looks good with a black and white photo, in this case my Mum and dad on the Orient Express (the UK bit). It also emphasises the way Mum is leaning forward towards the camera.
Use a shaped frame
Here my lucky husband John has been chosen as the star ... These photos look quite dull but it was important to document this strange evening in our lives. Page is from a MyMemories template by Lindsay Jane.
