I went to the frame shop and snagged my pastel back before they stared work on it and found supplies and did it myself.  The mat is not sized correctly, but I think it turned out just fine.  I did buy a mat board cutter and as soon as I learn how to use it I may or may not redo the mat on this.


I did make a friend at the other supply store and she offered me up all of her offcuts and some full sheets!  :heeha:

Thanks to a tip from Alice another money saver is to go buy art at thrift shops for the frames.
