You frame it Friday

I love today's "You frame it" picture. It's from a relatively rare wildflower plant I purchased recently called Jeffersonia Twin Leaf, which apparently was one of Thomas Jefferson's favorite wild flowers. It supposedly has beautiful white flowers in early spring, but I bought the plant just for it's incredible leaves.

The collage is mounted on an 8 1/2 x 11" piece of Gilbert Oxford card stock, to give you plenty of framing options. You may choose to frame it in a small 5 x 7" frame with or with out a mat, but better yet it can be framed in an 8 x 10" frame with a standard mat, or even an 11 x 14" frame, which would allow the deckled edges of the handmade paper to show.

The "twin leaves" have been sealed with a UV and moisture resistant sealant, but as with all fine art, I would recommend using acid free matting and UV resistant glass.
