Hello everyone. Once again, I'm asking for your suggestions. The natural wood was my first choice but dark wood grain did not look good with this dark linen, in my humble opinion. So I chose a brown crackle finish for it (although it doesn't look bad on the light primer). Since this is my first hornbook type thingamabob hickey, I'll tell you how I plan to mount it, and you tell me a better way.
I do not want a trim around it so the corners must be mitered. I will stitch them into place, trim and Tacky glue for extra hold. I plan on a thin layer of cotton batting beneath the stitchery, no pouf, just for softness. The inside board is not a thick mount board but a thin mat since I want it sort of flat. When I finally get the corners right and the entire piece is fixed on the mat, I will use E6000 in a few spots to glue to the hornbook type thingamabob hickey. No plans for tacks around the piece, no trim ....but ... should I trim it and pouf it? Floss cording in the linen color, thin hemp cord, chenille? I think I'm doing the actual prep and attach OK, but how do you think the final finish should look? What do you do? Should I put a hole for hanging in the handle? Any suggestions or help would be welcomed. I would like to have the offer listed this Friday.
We're having perfect weather today, I hope you are having a good day.
