Baby Collage Frame

Someone mentioned that they'd like to see some of my collage items so I thougth I'd post one of my favorites that I have made...

This was made to celebrate the birth of a friends little boy.... All of the "baby" items were real goodies I found here and there. The rattle had an ugly animal face so I covered it with a computer generated circle of info. I stamped his name & baby boy with archival ink on a piece of cross-word puzzle fabric. The "M" was inked and a piece of stamped cardstock was added behind.

I "aged" the frame with blue acrylic paint. I applied the paint to a rag and rubbed it over the entire frame. The paint natually collects in the cracks and crevices for just the right effect.

Hope you enjoy the frame...
it's a fun project and makes a great gift for new parents and their little ones!!
Have a great day everyone :)


  1. This is just stunning, Roni. What did you do to the frame - dry brush some pale blue paint?

    Love it!


  2. Thanks Phinny! Yep, I used acrylic paint on a rag and rubbed it into the frame. Since it was unfinished wood it took beautifully.


Thanks for your thoughts and comments!
