    I'm putting it up on four large sheets of paper. The only problem is that I need to have those borders in there. So, would it look better with white, black, or gray borders? or other of course.

    I included the picture with a rough photoshop of how it would look like with black or gray. Also consider this is going on a light cream color wall.

    Either black or match the wall color. By matching the wall color you'd create a separation but flow between the pieces all the same. Where as the black creates a different break by being the same color as some of the objects in the art.

    Personally I'd likely go for a slightly raised mount (think canvas type depth) and space them out letting the wall color create the spacing for you.

    ^ agree on black. matching the wall colour is probably best bet. why do you need to have the borders in there, though?

    I need to have the bordrs because I found it is way to hard to get it on poster board and cut it well. I got these frames that are a little too big, but looks good with the borders.

    If you can find a better way for me to mount it, let me know.

    i'd say go white if it matches your bedroom wall so that the picture's contrast stands out that much more

    otherwise, go black

    black, white looks like regular paper, actually cut it out and put it on a black matte board, found in any art supply store,
