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.
I loved how everything turned out, and more importantly, SHE loved it too.
Especially the pink frame.
(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
