I feel like the last couple of weeks, all I do is post about art. I swear, I do have other projects on the go… just none I’m ready to share quite yet. So, in keeping with the current theme, I thought I’d share a little framing mishap. As you might have noticed yesterday (if you pay attention to details like me…) one of those mattes is DEFINITELY a different shade of white than the rest. I mean, it’s pretty much full-on cream. I know I may sound crazy, but it’s driving me NUTS. All of the other mattes are much cooler and this super warm cream matte totally sticks out.
I think I’m going to have to just suck it up and have another matte cut… which means I’m out $20. Not the most exorbitant expense or anything, but frustrating nonetheless, given that I just had that one made 2 weeks ago!
This is kind of a persistent problem with me. I feel relatively confident in many other areas of design and colour selection, but when it comes to picking the right white, or whites that complement each other, I always seem to get it wrong. Does anyone have any advice or tricks they use? I mean, maybe no one notices the discrepancy but me… but it makes me CRAZY.
*Please note that I am aware that this is a minor issue in the grand scheme of… well, everything. xo
