Framing workshop, matboard

Our former chairperson, Tina, taught a workshop tonight on framing. She is a wonderful teacher!

We had earlier given her pictures, certificates, etc., that she resized for us in miniature. My choices were: (1) a picture of Vern and Sean on our first camping/fishing trip, (2) Vern as coach of Leanne's softball team, and (3) Vern's parents. In the upper right hand corner you can see the miniaturized copies of each picture. and in the lower right hand is the first frame I made.

And here is the framed picture.

I'll try to expand on the framing tomorrow.

MEE member, Sandra, announced that she had LOTS of matboard available to club members and, in fact, brought in a stack of it for us.

I picked up these:
The top piece is 19 1/2" x 8 1/2"
 Was pleased to have those pieces, then spotted this one:

This piece is 9 1/8" x 9 1/8". 
I think this piece will make a wonderful counter top and top for the island in the kitchen room.
