African Woman Framed!




This is African Woman by Bleu de Soie framed! I decided to pull the small of amount of teal in her as the main mat color. She was very easy to pick colors and a frame for. The frame is not a plain frame-it looks like it has an African feel to it. The picture is clickable. I love having her hanging up in my home. Otherwise, it's a cool morning here in Florida about 40 degrees-but it's nice. The kids are off to school and I intend to make an appointment for beautification also known as a hair appointment!LOL Thank you all the great comments on my cappuccino finish! Have a great day!

She looks great Sharon! It was 47 this morning when I went to work. Brrr! I think it's supposed to freeze tonight. I am not going to want to go to my car at 6am tomorrow morning, for sure!

Beautiful! I think the teal makes her stand out even more and draws your attention to the stitching. Lovely choice!

Oh, Sharon! She's beautiful! Love the teal color you chose for the main mat. Really makes it pop. The frame is perfect for it. The diamond/triangle design along the edge mimics the design in her dress. I know you must be thrilled to pieces to have her in your home.
