Artwork Collage

Last summer I posted about the Jan Eleni collage available at Love (for a hefty price), and I finally got around to trying it out as a Christmas gift for my husband from our daughter.  We selected 28 pieces of her artwork, scanned them in and printed them on card stock.  Each image was 3″ x 4″ and the frame was 24″ x 30″.  You could definitely make them smaller and fit more.  Then I just taped them down in case we want to change out the artwork someday.

My four-year-old just hasn’t accumulated a critical mass of artwork, so she made a collage of her own with paper and fabric scraps.  It’s called So Many Houses on a Street.

  1. what a GREAT idea, and a great way to display artwork!! i just bought a series of cheap 4″x4″ frames to do sort of the same thing. thanks for the idea!

  2. These are great- a very cool gift idea. “So Many Houses on a Street” is a very nice title. I love the titles that kids give their art- my daughter just drew a picture that she called “Pug in a Raincoat.” Good stuff.

  3. This is a fantastic idea. My daughter LOVES to draw and paint…we already have a critical mass of artwork and she just turned three…I’ll have to save all my favorites and do this in the next couple of years :).

  4. This is such a wonderful idea! I’ve scanned most of my childrens artwork in the hopes of replicating this idea…. the only problem is the frame. Where did you find your 28 collage picture mat? Or did you have to take it to be professionally framed? I really love this. I hope that I can figure this out. I’m hoping to give these as gifts for Christmas. Thank you for the great idea. Love your blog as well!
