I have finished it and here's how it turned out....
It's a whopping 18x22" and is quite impressive in person!
I'm going to place it on the gift table at the wedding unwrapped so everyone can see it.
I hope that they like it.
If you recall or take a look at the previous steps I shared I had painted the entire frame and added the blue harlequin. After all of the paint had dried I went back and sanded the front of the frame - Black only - and distressed it a bit with sand paper. It make the blue & white background look very crisp against the distressed black.
I then glued on 2 types of black trim to finish off the frame. A round 1/2" cord around the outside and a flat braided trim around the opening. Popped in my artwork (Thank you Tracey for figuring out the PS stuff!!!) and ta-da! Wedding gift ready to give.
