Framing the Panda

Framing the Panda

Happy New Year everyone!

For the 4th Quarter Challenge I did a dimensional panda picture in monochrome.

I  hung it on the wall in my bedroom which is also a shade of gray.

Lyn suggested on the forum that I frame it.  I really liked the picture she posted. It really popped.  The mat was very narrow. I had a frame that fit it perfectly, but needed the right sized mat which unfortunately wasn’t a standard size. I’d have to have a custom mat made.

Instead of paying for a custom frame and mat, I decided to try a standard size 16 x 20″ frame and a mat that was larger than the picture Lyn had posted.  Fortunately, the picture was just a little larger than the opening in the mat.

Here is the result.

There may be too much white.  What do you think?  Should I invest in the smaller mat and frame? Or does the standard size work ok?
