Another fun project to do with your photos is create a photo collage using vintage photo mattes.
While I was looking for vintage photos, I started noticing how beautiful the mattes were that photos were put into many years ago. Sometimes I wasn't crazy about the photo but I was in love with the mattes. So again, a pile starting mounding until I came up with something to do with them. I picked out some of the prettiest ones and set them aside. If I could pull out the photos I would, if not I just glued right over them.
I chose some photos of my own family and on the computer I changed them from color to black and white - or sepia tone if you choose. I sized them to fit into the opening of these mattes then cut them into the right shapes.
Again, I used one of my many chippy frames and a piece of matte board. I played around with layout and mounted the new/old photos onto the matte board to create a gallery of family photos that fit better in my homes decor.
You can cover with glass if you choose.
