You frame it Friday

When a new fern "unfolds" it's bright green for just a day or so before the chlorophyll gets to work and gives a fern its signature rich green color.

This fern was pressed in that small window of time, capturing its fleeting bright greenness.

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 "new fern" has 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.
