As I was framing all of the most recent paintings, I thought of using some of my gelli print papers to mount the Funky Five Minute tree on and this is how it looks. I wish I’d thought of it sooner but my mind was occupied with the painting and not too much else.  I mounted the approximately 4″ X 3″ painting on two different papers with double sided tape and didn’t use a separate mat at all. I really like the look! I also recycled a frame that had a badly dinged up corner–refurbished, sort of, by dinging up the WHOLE frame! I also remember Monte Guyne’s advice–when you have a problem area in a painting, try to analyze what’s wrong with it and either “wipe it out” (remove it) or add more of what ever it is–repeat it until it becomes a pattern instead of an eyesore. I applied that advice to this frame–I didn’t want to refinish it and I couldn’t hide the ding, so I used the sanding block and smoothed out the ding and removed the finish from the edges all around. I like that, too!
