Rose & Grey Autumn Styling Challenge

You my have seen some of my posts about the photo printing project I’ve worked on over the summer.

Today I wanted to share some frames from Rose & Grey I’ve had the pleasure of working with, to display my photos and memories.

You see these frames are something a bit different. Not just for a single image, although of course you can use them for this, but they work brilliantly when layering images and even other small flat items.

Mementos such as tickets, pressed flowers, postcards, stamps even press clipping would work fantastically in a layered, scrapbook style.

I’ve been using one large antique brass frame and two of the small ones, I find groups of the same thing work best in threes {and its my lucky number!}.antique brass frames

I used some of the photographs from our holiday in Whitby as the starting point for my montages. The idea of family fun on holiday is evergreen and these are images I treasure from a place we love.

These frames are hinged at the bottom with a catch on the top part to keep them from flipping open. They are hung with strips of Indian silk which adds an element of colour and texture to the frame.

These strips of silk can be adjusted in length to make the the desired hanging drop for your wall, or they can be used to hang the frames from other places. Window frames would be great, if you had things within the frame that have an interesting silhouette or perhaps transparent, giving a stained glass effect.

I have to admit I found these SO difficult to photograph, I kept getting myself reflected in the frames!photos in hinged frames

I used a really old postcard of Whitby abbey, a branch from my birthday bouquet -a touch of autumn, a couple of Square Snaps photographs I’ve had printed, and a photobooth strip of Mr OFS and I on a weekend away.

I love Rose & Grey, I get lost in their website on a regular basis!antique brass frames

    I love those frames (I’ve had my eye on them for a while!) and they look brilliant used as memory frames.

    Beautiful frames. I’m going to have to search for them in the US.
