Mats for your frame - DIY

Watercolor painting, scanning the artwork, posting online (see POD blog), printed greeting cards, artisan at Heather Boutique in downtown Fredericksburg Virginia...all of this is an evolution that I could not have envisioned six years ago. Things have a way of moving a certain direction that you could not have anticipated.


Such is the role that this artist took on when she decided to mat and frame her artwork, both prints and originals. Initially, it was a quick purchase of retail frames, either 5x7 or 8x10 inch. This suits the greeting card prints. I hand-letter the titles on the back of the greeting cards that I sell in the boutique, and I make an occasional "oops", and this card now has a new life as a framed print. All it need is a mat and a frame.
