Great LOTR frame up, JB. The more I look at the pics, the more I like it.

Haven't seen too many of these framed up yet, so here is my take.
Tried to show it with and without the flash so you can get an idea for the colors and the textures, etc.

I did something a little different on these. It's the same black woodgrain moulding as the others, but the black and white wasn't going to work with the cream paper and different color ink. I tried to keep them integrated with the moulding and triple mat, but still separate. The others are on pp. 355-56, for reference. :)

These look fantastic, very nice job! I particularly like the reverse bevel on the fabric mats, I haven't seen that too much.

No, it's their old one (c7707), those pics is huge. Those new ones are nice though, remind me of the heavy burlap they discontinued a few (oof, 10?) years ago. Always dug those.

I have a couple coming up with the new burlap mats - I can't wait to see how they look finished - may have to make a sample for the wall.
