    (Hey, at this point, it is. lol...)

    I've always wanted to use this LJ Senelar, and love it with this Christensen print.

    Beautiful! Only difference for me would be the matching Senelar gold fillet 102212 in lieu of the gold mat. The fillet matches the finish and curve of the inner part of the frame (absolutely not a criticism).

    Vintage? Wasn't this done in the 1980'S?

    Good look, but if that's vintage, I must be antique...Grumble, grumble...

    More like the '90's. lol.....it was a joke. (But don't they call a twenty year old car a classic?) :p

    Glad you do. I often use reverse bevels. Seeing this close-up detail makes me wish I'd done that thing where they cut the window so there's extra fabric to wrap around the reversed bevel. I've never done it with a pre-made fabric mat, but it seems pretty cool. (Then, I forget. ha ha.)

    Here are the mat and moulding #'s: Outer mat C5558. Inner mat B4301. The inner mat is perfect with for this print, and it shimmers. Frame: Larson Juhl #28212. I've had the print at home for about 22 years, but couldn't ever frame it. Finally decided to sell it to someone who could. It was really lovely, and fun to do my favorite design.

    That works very well on that image. I like the reverse bevels too.

    I like it too. Best thing about it is that it is a radical departure from the minimalistic drek which, depressingly, seems to have dominated framing here in Australia for the past few years.

    "I like my minimalistic drek just a little on the Aussie side"? :p
