Bad photo though. Taken from my iphone in crappy lighting, but you get the picture. A previous post in this thread gave me some inspiration for the frame, however my mat is slightly different.

Looks familiar.... hmmmm.... :lol:

I like it! You can't do better than getting framing inspiration/ideas from the dog.

Interesting, frames as matts, I like it. Could use a little more soul piercing yellow though. :wink:

I'm currently working on a DIY frame job for this:

Image

as a college graduation gift for a Black Keys fan. I've painted a black metal frame bright pink and I'm going to use a white/black core mat (and maybe a black/black core top mat) with it. I'm really excited to see how this comes out. Pics will definitely be posted here when it's done! :D

Sounds like an awesome idea. I've got the set so looking forward to seeing how this comes out emac.

I'm totes serious. :lol: The frame was a scratch and dent custom frame that I got for a song, but it needed some touch ups. I decided to just go balls-out and paint it a bright color to match the pink in the print. It's for a very artistic, free-spirited girl who I think will love the bold look -- but honestly, I think bringing out the pink (or, alternatively, the bright blue if you hate pink) will just really make the colors in the print pop. :)

When I was looking closely at the print tonight, I realized that all the very dark shaded areas aren't black, they're actually a really dark blue. I'm scrapping the idea of a black or white mat (the paper is slightly off-white anyway and didn't match the white matboard I already had) and buying a dark navy mat board tomorrow. I had a navy piece leftover from another project, and it looked fantastic with the print. I'm so incredibly stoked to put it all together tomorrow.

Due to a crazy nearly 24-hour workday last Thursday, I didn't finish this until Friday around lunchtime. When I tried to take pictures in my house, the non-glare glass kept making everything fuzzy. I gave up after a while because I needed to get on the road. So when I gave the print to her, I snapped 2 quick phone pics in the parking lot -- and lo and behold, they turned out fine. :P

I loved how everything turned out, and more importantly, SHE loved it too. :D Especially the pink frame. :lol: (She had a pink streak in her hair that I didn't remember her having the last time I saw her, so I guess pink was a good choice on my part. ;) )

Print = $75
Basic black rounded profile metal frame, painted with Rustoleum Berry Pink and a clear lacquer top coat = $10 (frame was a scratch and dent "custom" castoff, and I already had the paint)
Navy blue mat with off-white core = $5.60 (for the whole board, and I have some left over; I cut the mat myself)
White foamcore backer = $4.20 (for the whole board, and I have some left over)
UV non-glare glass = $27
Mylar mounting strips = $0 (already had them)

GRAND TOTAL = about $122 all in :)

In case anyone isn't bored of seeing framed up Stout SW sets... I've had these framed up for a while now, but thought I should share. Just scored a Stout Inglorious Basterds that's going to get the same treatment ASAP (unless anyone has any suggestions!).
