Great Ideas For Framing Photos: FREE
DIYframing is constantly thinking of ways to promote good quality picture framing. Our latest effort is completely free: a series of framing projects, each showing a range of new ideas. These will help anyone, with a grounding in the basic skills and principles of picture framing, to develop your work further. Each month the Project Library will feature a new project, explaining a way of taking artwork beyond the standard mount and frame.
This month we show how to create shadows in a triple mount to give the illusion of catching a glimpse of a bigger picture. The idea works especially well with tightly cropped images, such as close up studies and intimate portraiture. All materials needed and methods used are highlighted on a free to download, PDF. All you have to do is register on the DIYframing website for access to the library. New projects are added each month.
