I posted this in the Furthur Frames thread, but I'll put it up here as well. Not the best shot for showing the awesome detail, but I love this.

I mean, most of Mike's stuff is really fun. Might as well let that shine through on the frame. The whole thing, including the beads was $10. Can't beat that.

I've been wanting to share my stuff since joining last year but most of my stuff is very poorly framed with no mats and backing that is usally just the back of the frame.

Finally after assembling a bunch of frames, a matt cutter, and some mattes I finally got to make a frame for a specific piece of art. Frame came used from framer. Mats came free. Both were white initially, painted both with acrylic paint. Yellow has a little bit of Glow Inks in it but should probably do another coat at some point. Modeled it after the logo which has a red or yellow core depending on what image you find.

It's a little uneven. But it looks good and feels great that I made it for about $25 dollars rather than $200+ what it might cost at a framer.

Let me know what you guys think.
