Lots of people have seen/asked about how to go about doing this large scale photo collage. So, I thought I'd give a little explanation. Unfortunately, this was done several years ago, so I don't have a pictorial step by step.
I started with great photos. These were done by a semi-professional photographer, but because I wanted to do them so large (16x20), I wasn't sure if color photos would come our grainy. So, I went with black and whites. Also, B&Ws have a certain "match anything" quality and don't clutter up the landscape of your room as much.
I sent these photos off to costco.com, and 3 days later they arrived. I purchased black foam core board from a craft store (Michaels), and some spray adhesive. I've since come to find out that the better way to do the adhesing is with rubber cement. It sticks as well, but stays "slimy" for awhile, and allows you to slide the picture around on the foam core board to get it positioned well. The spray adhesive is "unforgiving" in that sense....a 2 man job to get it down straight and bubble free.
Lastly, after everything is dry, just tack the photos onto the wall using brads (very small headed nails) and countersink the nails. Countersinking is a method of using an awl (looks like an ice pick) and a hammer to tap the nail head below the surface of the foam core, so you don't see the nail at all.awl. ha! I crack myself up.
The small embellishments from Uppercase Living are 6" square, and add just that certain sompn-sompn, ya know?
Sorry again, for lack of photos. Happy crafting!!
