You can see all the materials you need at a glance in our photo. To design your picture frame, you’ll need the edding 4085 chalk marker by Securit in various pastel colours and white. Start by printing out the “Our travel adventure” template and prepare your selected photos.
Before you start, activate the white chalk marker as follows: shake the marker vigorously with the cap on, then remove the cap, place the nib on a piece of absorbent paper and pump it up and down gently a few times until ink appears in the nib. Activate the other colours in the same way, and now you’re ready to get drawing. (After use, always replace the cap securely and store the marker horizontally.)
Using the template to help you, write the heading at the top of the chalkboard using the activated chalk marker. We recommend you draw the outlines of the letters first, before you colour them in. If your first attempt doesn’t quite work, or you want to change something, simply wipe off the ink with a damp cloth and have another go.
Now arrange your holiday snaps across the board and secure them with the double-sided tape. Make sure you leave plenty of space between the pictures for brief captions or drawings.
Pick a nice colour scheme and use the edding chalk markers by Securit to add photo captions or draw frames around specific photos – it’s entirely up to you how you want it to look.
By adding relevant drawings and small decorative touches, you can liven up your collage and produce an amazing effect.
