Christine Sweeny, owner of FrameWorks is a CPF creditential holder from the Professonal Picture Framing Association and is well known throughout the industry for her high standards and creativity. Here is what she has to say about three recent framing memorabilia projects:

Autographed Masters Tournament Flag

"This framing project was sent to a fund raising auction in New York where it raised $8,000! It is a signed Masters Tournament flag, which we were asked to frame. We selected a green suede mat to match the logo, and inlaid a red suede mat into the green mat. The flag was sewn to the bottom green mat to create the appearance that the flag is flying. It was finished with a simple wooden frame. We added an engraved plate on the bottom with the names of the golfers who had autographed it. The total retail cost was $345."

South African Mini Masks

"A customer returned from South Africa with these hand-carved wooden masks and asked that we create a way to frame them. The masks are sewn to the natural burlap back. We added a reverse fillet, which is like a mini-frame surrounding the burlap 'island'. This was then floated on a backing

board of the same burlap. A shadow box frame was selected to accommodate the depth of the masks with the sides of the framelined with the same burlap. Museum glass was used to create an extraordinarily clear display. The total retail cost was $550."

Butterfly Women

"These are three portraits made from butterfly wings that we framed individually and then put in a larger frame that is lined with black linen. The total retail cost was $225."
