Five Tips for Designing Picture Framing
Here are some ideas to consider when choosing framing for your artwork. 1. Look to the art you are framing for clues about color and style: bright? subtle? formal? modern? 2. Look at framed pictures in magazines and on television to figure out what styles you like. 3. Experiment with wide mats or mouldings-they can look great even on small artwork. 4. Try several different mats and frame mouldings until you find the combination you like best. 5. Remember: The goal is a balanced design that enhances and provides a good presentation for the art, without overwhelming it.
