Here is the final product with the last 50 inchies from Inchie Swap Round 3. ( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=314362.msg3617427#msg3617427 )



Originaly, I had left all the inchies randomly in the frame but it looked muddy. It is now sorted by darkness and color. I really like the burst effect it has.



Here it is on the wall of my studio. My cat, Vash, is pretending to be an art critic.

Thanks to everyone who swapped with me to make this wonderful art possible!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I got all these inchies framed from a swap last year. ( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=218062.0 ) I left room for another 50 I may have received in round 2 but missed the sign up. More waiting then.

I was the custom framer on an Army post in Hohenfels, Germany so the matting and frame are custom built for the job. I must have had a slow week to want to do all the math for that mat cut.



Thnaks!

That is really beautiful. But I like it the way it is, you shouldn't add any more. It shows off a lot of inchies and is still kind of minimalist.

Thank you everyone. I wish I still had access to the computer mat cutter for these pieces (may be able to share my work in the near future)

(wondering what the matting guy at joann's would say if I asked them to cut me something like this.  haha)

If you are paying them to do it they should do anything for you. Unfortunatly, some places charge by the cut so it could get pricey. However, if you have corel draw many mat cutting programs are compatible. Discuss with your frame guy and he may give you a discount if you bring him a predrawn file.

I have one more frame, a 3x3, around here somewhere. I'll post pics when I unpack it.
