Friday's Five: Ways to Frame Your Photos

For this Friday's Five, I'd love to share a few ways that I like to frame my photos on my pages.

1. The Simple White Edge.
It may see like a boring choice in comparison to some of the others but the effect it creates on your pages is anything but!  A simple white edge or frame around your photos can create's a contrast that lets your photo really shine.

2. Just Doodlin' Around.
A doodled frame is perfect when all your looking for is something subtle to finish things off.  Try using a wavy outline or dotted lines to add a bit of whimsy to your page

3. Break Out The Brackets.
Brackets can be a charming way to frame a single focal photo, or to create a frame for your multi-photo arrangements.  It can also be the perfect opportunity for you paper scrappers to use up your leftover alphas!  

4. Frame it Up Fancy!
Using an ornate frame can help to dress up your photo, while giving it more weight on the page.

5. Getting Creative.

Go for the element of surprise and think about all of the fun things you could re-purpose as a frame..

Have a great weekend!

I like the way you framed your photos with the circles and stitching.
