Frame with wide surface
(use photo for reference)
Take a series of pictures that can be combined in a collage (see photo for sample photos).
Trim photos carefully to sillouhette the main subject.
Using a foam brush, coat the frame with decoupage solution. While still wet, place photos that are not overlapping on the frame and apply another coat of solution. When dry, give another coat of solution and position any overlapping photos. Make sure there are no air bubbles under the photos. While it is still wet, paint another coat of solution on top.
These frames are available on MakingFriends.com.
