Easy Peasy

The ready made frame.
It's sort of frowned on in the professional picture framing community.
It's soooo cheap,
But it's so easy to use.
Tear it out of a magazine
Insert in frame
Presto! It's art. 
The art doesn't even have to be a perfect fit.
That's what the mat is for.
Crop what you want, cover the rest.
That's the idea anyway
(It's great when the art is a perfect fit too).

Today I present seven new meshes
for the art enthusiast who might not be able
to afford the price of custom picture framing.

We've all been there ...
Even framers. 

They call this style a gallery frame.
Generally speaking, galleries want to showcase the art
Not the frame.
By unifying the look of the frame,
it visually goes away to allow the viewer to see just the art.

Where'd it go??!

When the art is all different sizes, having the same size
outer frame can also remove the importance of how a piece has been framed.

So effective.

So mix
Each mesh has 15 images
(5x5 has a volume 1 & 2 where is lacks an orientation)
That's 120 images to choose from
and there is a look for everyone.
A real mix and match.
Use it in your sleek modern penthouse - go you!
Your kitten obsessed tween's bedroom
Your University dorm room with two other fangirls ...
As a backsplash in your concrete kitchen
In your space challenged Studio apartment

There is look for everyone.
A smattering of styles.
Anything can be art if you like it.
And it looks so much better in a frame.
Pinkie swear.

  1. Outstanding! Love it! Thank you!

  2. I love your stuff!

    However, I tried to install some things and Delphy's Dashboard says some of it conflicts with itself. Like, you pulp art conflicts with your esoteric art, your female academic nudes conflicts with the general (male?) academic nudes, etc. Just FYI.

  3. Hi Unknown - no worries! Conflicts are not conflicts when it's by the same creator. In fact - it's extremely rare to have a real conflict with objects - conflicts mostly relate to mods. Sim Logical used to have a post about it - sadly, they've closed their doors, but you can get a brief overview at Crinrict's here

  4. Unknown - this is the link to the article on SimLogical - I was able to find it - some kind soul took screen shots and posted it into a PDF here:
