Step Up Your Game

As a sales rep and a true custom framer at heart, I enjoy seeing the creative designs and problem solving exhibited by you. I wanted to post a "brag column" allowing framers to show off proud accomplishments. A focus of this guild is education, and through the photos posted monthly in this feature, I wish to get our creative juices flowing and hopefully teach an old dog a new trick or even a new pup and old trick every now and then. I promise to always have a camera with me, plus invite you to email your own photos to me at JenniferJPatterson1@yahoo.com

This creative and fun design by Anna Johnson of Tacoma Framemakers, demonstrates both a practical and a whimsical technique.

For the practical, the glass has been placed between the textured scoop liner moulding and the top block cap frame which creates a natural lift or shadow box effect. This is a very attractive, easy and effective trick to do when the art is lifted and floated. Using two mouldings can be an intimidating proposition to sell, but considering there is no matting here, the united inches are much lower.  All the money saved in keeping it smaller can go towards a flashier fantastic frame design.

The whimsical factor here is the hand painted "blood spatter" on the linen mat, which did a great job in soaking up the red paint. A thinner paint wash was applied first then more concentrated dripping created this look.
