I finally finished Urco and decided that I would add the names at the bottom. Not only does it identify each horse, but it also cuts into that expanse of pine board that I’m iffy about. I hope she will hang him with her USDF bronze medal and certificate.
I went to Michaels and spent half an hour picking out just the right colors for the double mat. I figured I could buy a sheet each of the archival mat boards and cut the mats at home. I have bought board from them before, but this time, because it wasn’t standard stock, they would not order it for me unless they did the framing. I didn’t want to spend that much since I can do it myself, so I went on line and tried to get the closest thing I could. Not my first choice, of course. Colors are iffy on-line so I am keeping my fingers crossed that the outer, neutral mat color will work. Monday I’ll know.
Maybe I’ll post them both framed up next week. Would you like to see that?
