Frame It | March Nerd Nest Challenge 1

The March Nerd Nest Challenge is to Frame it.

Adding a frame to your project is a great way to make an impact and put the focus where you want it to be. You can frame your photos, your journaling, your title or your whole project!

It can also be a great way to use up small embellishments or paper scraps. You can use a pre-made frame embellishment and size your focal point to fit inside, you can cut patterned paper or cardstock down to make a rectangular frame, or you can add lots of little bits around your focal point!

For my take on the challenge, I used layers of frames: I framed my photo collage in a white border when I printed it, I mounted my collage on a blue patterned paper frame, then added lots of embellishments under and around the frame to finish if off.

I spaced out similar embellishments around the frame to bring balance.

Using an odd number, like the five stars on my project, is always a good rule to use if you aren’t going for a perfectly symmetrical look.

Ali Edwards’s Build Story Kit was perfect for telling this story about Eliza’s First Lego League Robotics competition. Try to think outside of the box with themed projects!

I really love the framed look for this page. I’m excited to see what kind of frame you make!
