As a beginner I failed to take care in the sizing of my work.. when it came to mounting them it proved difficult.. they look great from the front but turn them around and they are not central.. will take more care in future to find off the peg sizes and mark my paper with a good boarder first
Yes, I am having plenty of problems with that. I did several pieces on canvas paper on what I thought was a standard-type size (16 x 12 inch pad) and now I can't find a pre-made frame nor mat for them. I also keep bouncing back-and-forth on how to have them framed. Now I am thinking to mount them to some sort of board that is standard size and then frame them without a mat. I want space around them because I want to give them titles at the bottom - the way printmakers do.
I've started a file with standard frame sizes so I can keep it in mind when I begin now.
Yeah thats a good idea Amelia.. I shall be extra careful in future
