Publisher Comments:

There is nothing like photos of loved ones, significant events, and vacation spots — as well as one-of-a-kind artwork by kids — to act as constant, comforting reminders of what's most important in our lives. Now, you can make them even more special! Creative Matting and Framing presents an exciting collection of more than 30 decorative matting and framing projects for embellishing treasured photographs and objets d'art in creative and unforgettable ways.

The fun-to-do projects demonstrate how to transform a mat or frame into a gorgeous item that suits the color and design of its surroundings and uniquely reflects the subject it presents — all using common crafting materials and techniques. Each chapter features four to six innovative projects for creating beautiful frames with stamping, polymer clay, decoupage, fabric, mosaics, and even leaves, shells, and flowers. What's more, they all include step-by-step directions, ready-to-use patterns, and even suggested variations.

With an upscale page presentation and 90 gorgeous, full-color photos by veteran photographer Kevin Dilley, Creative Matting and Framing demonstrates how simple, familiar crafting techniques can turn an ordinary mat or frame into an extraordinary treasure!
