I recently received a set of beautiful botanical drawings from my friend Eileen Behnke, a stylist and artist, and was determined to find a way to frame them that did them justice. I decided they would be the perfect candidates for one of my favorite framing tricks: fabric-covered mats! Creating these custom mats is a great way to unify a series (or disparate artworks, for that matter) and really frees you up to play with color.
You can do a lot with just 5 frames. And, thanks to our templates (and instant matting), you can go from unopened boxes to everything hanging on the wall in about 10 minutes. Maybe even faster... Check out the demo on changeofart.com
