Shaped Picture Collage Ideas

Repeat the Collage Shape with a Cardstock Mat

Design by Michelle Rubin

Template: Quick Collage 401

How she used it: Three small photo blocks showcase close-up photos of flowers, while the narrow horizontal block houses digital elements and a title.

Make the scrapbook page: After printing her collage, Michelle trimmed it and matted it on similarly shaped cardstock. Simple strips of patterned paper balance the collage without detracting from the photos, and a pieced-together flower pulls the theme through.
