DIY: Dictionary Picture Frames

I was feeling very restless yesterday, so I decided to put my craft hat on.  I called up my good friend H for a Dollar Store/Chapter date, she is the best person to go to for help with any craft.  I found my inspiration for this project on Apartment Therapy, if you haven't check it out please do its rad.  Also go to their link to check out the dictionary lamp project, since I have no lamp needs I decided to create picture frames.  I have a massive empty wall going up my staircase to my bedroom that I want to create a frame collage on. 

I'm starting with these:

Using classic decoupage technique I covered wooden frames I got at Dolleramma in torn columns of a dictionary I got there as well.  I Plan on varnishing them as well to give a nice shiny surface.  I have this image in my mind of frames covering a wall filled with photo's, mirrors and interesting patterns, maybe even some empty ones.  I'm going to stick with black, white, red and grey as my colour scheme I may even check out an antique shop or two.  This is going to be a long project for me, but this picture from here will give you the idea.

Except picture stairs and many frames of different shapes and colours, but you get the idea.  I find that with digital photography no one does anything with their pictures except post them on FaceBook.  I want to add memories to our house, starting with our wedding that was almost a year ago. 

Can't wait to start my next frame project, I'm thinking red lacquered.

Love Kaydee
