Vangie La Gesse of Puyallup Custom Frame & Art does all her mat cutting old schoolâ€”no CMC hereâ€”yet Â has more decorative mat cutting on display than I've seen in ages.Â Separated and regular V-Grooves, debossed lines (Again by hand, she used her burnishing bone and a straight edge.) notched corners, applied cut outs, etc. can also be seen the following collection.Â As a credit to her, Vangie is not shy about admitting that she is 85 years young and still going strong. Â Although she recently admitted that maybe selling her business in the thriving downtown Puyallup area would be nice so she can do other things.
These embellishments add such a nice touch of elegance and design even in their simplicity.
