Entry #1

1) Frame used: Hughes Mouldings - Australia (Imported Spanish Moulding)
2) Matting used: Tru Vue International Whitecore Mats. Green Top Mat - Gold Foil Bottom Mat.
3) Description of item framed: 4 x Autographed 10" x 8" Photos from Actors of "Lord of the Rings"
4) Description of framing design: Standard double mat multiopening - with a carved logo.
5) other comments you would like to share about the project (like items used, techniques used) - Approximately 3 hours and a few wasted mats & blades were used to create and perfect this design to be able to cut perfectly on a Gunnar F1 CMC, using import from Corel Draw. The end result is obviously pleasing. Used Tru Vue UV conservation clear glass




Uh…I forgot the art and just framed some mats.

Crescent 9592 ‘Blizzard’
Crescent 9602 ‘Guacamole’
Crescent 9584 ‘Catcher’s Mitt’
Crescent HZ13150 ‘Spun Gold Black’

11”x14” readymade
Black with steps on the outside to emphasize the mat layers


Larger image:

I took some old costume jewelry and glued them around an opening in an oval shaped frame. Not conservation considerations, I used E6000 to glue. I built a frame around that but have no recollection of what it is. It is really about using the jewelry to create the frame I think........

C5931 bottom mat 1/2 reveal

Entry #7
It began life as a two inch wide raw frame and I painted it, spattered it, and attached little music notes, drums, stars, maple leaves , a tiny clarinet(all out of brass) and then made a wooden marimba and mallets - a 8x10 "baby" frame for the Canadian clarinetist mom and the American percussionist dad.


Entry #8
1) Frame used:437976 Larson-Juhl
2) Matting used:Black linen.. cannot remember the number
3) Description of item framed:playbill cover from "The Full Monty"
4) Description of framing design
The design is a kind of tongue-in-cheek take on the subject of the play. It was designed to look like the front of a man's trousers
5) other comments you would like to share about the project (like items used, techniques used
Most of the layout of the "pants" was done with dark blue or black linen mat pieces. a real leather belt was cut and used at the top. I lined the sides with the same linen mat because it needed the depth to accept the belt buckle.

Excellent job, Angie. Thanks for putting this together-all the entries are wonderful.
Framers imaginations are the best-I am still laughing over the link!!!!
Everyone entered beautiful works of art. Congratulations to all the entrants, you're all winners.
Those all were wonderful! Thank you so much for taking the time and putting so much effort into putting these all out there for us to enjoy.

I really enjoyed this and feel challanged as a framer to do more and step outside the box in my designs.

Thanks again,

Jennifer ,what this has done for me is to conivce me to photograph ALL my customers work. I sware I keep remebering jobs that I did long ago and never took a single picture of ,only to wish I could show them to someone while I was describeing them.

It is very hard to adequitely Judge the workmanship from a single photo( especially one I took.LOL) But a PHOTO of a unique Frame is in deed worth a 1000 words .And if the words are coming from the likes of me even a drawing is better.LOL
PS Angie You should get an AWARD for all your hard work .We atleast got paid for doing our thing.LOL
Baer and Angie, there WAS a band called 'Big Pink' way back when...and it appears there are at least 2 sushi-type restaurants in their own Big Pink chain.
Buddy, Thanks you are so sweet.

Jennifer, I was born in Kingsport, TN!! it's so cool that you are from there!! I am so glad this has given some inspiration to you!! That's exactly what I wanted to happen!...

I'm just glad there were sponsers and several entrants!! What a wonderful and talented group of people we have on here!!

hmm... Charles... I think Pink Floyd was a cool name ;) ... great band too.
Baer, is this the song you had in mind? It's by Bruce Springsteen :cool:

Yeah he was blinded by the light.
Cut loose like a deuce
Another runner in the night.
Blinded by the light . . .
Oh imaluma, nothing gets past you kids, does it... :D

I did remember, but I didn't want to go there and open that whole new can of pork..

Don't do it Charles. Not this year. NO. Behave, or I'll sick Bo on your slippers again. :D

John Ranes, Jim Miller, and Mark Klostermeyer!! They made for a very interesting group!!! They were great, let's give them all a round of thumbs up
Congratulations Angie on a job well done. Also thank all those who graciously sponsored this effort ,as well as all who took the time to judge and Vote .

Maybe the next effort will have even more entries and popular choice ballots. This was one of the most fun events we have had on TFG and it didn't corrupt the original concept in any way. In fact it allowed others to express their personal opinions about the style of framing they liked ,while giving others ideas of things to try .As well as being helped by some well known Grumblers and members of other Groups.This went a long way to showing that all framers have a lot in common ,while expressing their personl talents in a wide array of degrees.
Thanks again Angie I know personally how much effort this sort of thing can take on a slightly different venue.
