Need your opinion


Hi! I finished Midnight Stroll last night and had this frame I was going to use it for. I love this frame, the color really makes the stars stand out. Do you think I should put the alphabet on the bottom to fill it in more?
Or does it look o.k. as it is?
I do have a miter saw, which I could cut it down, but would rather not. What do ya's think?
Thanks for the help!!

The stitching looks a little lost in the frame - have you thought about matting? Maybe a dark red or a blue, to draw the eye in.

I was going to make the same suggestion. Because there seems to be so much extra space on each side, that's probably the simplest solution (and added bonus it will look great too).

I think more alphabet would keep the eye from wandering and looking for more... it is such a cute design!

There is too much empty space for my taste, some people like this though. The stitching part is very beautiful, great job! i love the moon and the stars on it.

Julie said...

It's a great design, i like the idea of a contrasting mat in there

yep that is one beautiful frame and I think a mat would look really nice.

personally i like it as it is without alphabet like the others said though a mat would set it off!

Barbara said...

Another vote for a mat. ;)

I love this design!

Laura said...

I would go for adding the alphabet to fill in some of the space. It really is a cute design.

Very cute design...I'm sure whatever you decide will be lovely :)

Stephanie said...

Lovely design and stitching! I'm another voter for the mat option.

Very pretty piece. I like the option of a mat too ;)

Marita said...

I also was going to suggest a mat.

It is a great frame.

Beatrice said...

The frame is too pretty to cut. I would put a mat around it not, more stitching.
It is beautiful!

How about a nice green top mat with a gold undermat?

Very cute. I like the frame, but size wise it does make the piece a bit lost as others have said. Maybe a double mat with the green and gold to fill it in a bit?

Glad to hear you had a good time in Fl., great pictures. Also, glad that your taxes are done for the most part. That is such a great feeling when they are done and gone for the year.

Your new start Frappucinno is looking lovely, and ATS is looking great too. Sorry you didn't have much luck with stitching stores while on vacation, but sounds like you had plenty of other stuff to see and do.

So pretty! Don't cut-try a mat or two.

Carla said...

I agree with what has been suggested here...if you don't want to stitch the alphabet you should think of using a mat.

Barbara said...

I also vote for using a mat or double mat. Not sure about the alphabet - depends on what it looks like. The stitching is great as is - just need to surround it with a little mat color.
