Tuesdays Are All About Techniques - Matting and Framing - Chattanooga Mosaic
Recognize this layout? It's the exact layout from the matting and framing class I took at CKC Louisville this year. As soon as I saw the water lily pictures used for the frames, I KNEW this was the perfect layout to showcase my pictures from our stay at the Chattanooga Choo Choo hotel. The small squares on the right page are pictures of the fish swimming in the pond with the water lillies.
The centerpiece pic on the left page involved cutting a 1/8" square out of the middle of my 4" square picture. It's a skill that I could use a little work on, but I love the effect - the picture frames itself!
