TO MAT OR NOT TO MAT YOUR ARTWORK & PHOTOGRAPHS . . .



Have you ever wondered why mats are used in framing artwork and photographs?  

Martha Stewart shares some matting examples here :


Well, they serve several purposes.  One of the main purposes is to protect the piece in which you are framing.   Artwork and photographs over time, and with temperature changes, can stick to the glass if there is no barrier in between the piece and the glass. Glossy photographs are the most likely to stick to glass – matte finish papers usually won’t.


A piece of fine art should be allowed to ‘breathe’ in the frame (expand and contract) and the mat allows for that. The mat serves as a layer of protection so that the image is not in contact with the glass.  Especially if you have an original piece of art (like a pastel) or a photograph that you want to preserve for years to come.  



No Mat vs Mat


Another way that mats are used is to make an image stand out.  When you mat your image it can help by adding depth and dimension to your piece, thus making the eye focus in on the image.  It can also help enhance certain colors in the piece making them pop off the page.  If you would like to add more depth and dimension to your work you can double or even triple mat your piece.  Also, if you have a small image, instead of enlarging it you can put a larger mat on it, making the piece overall a lot bigger.

Most picture framers will have dozens of colors and textures to choose from to help enhance your piece and help you show off your precious piece of artwork and photographs, as well as show off a little of your personality at the same time. 


 

Double Mat



Always choose mats that are acid-free so they will not harm your artwork or photographs and the bevel will not yellow over time.  

So…. to mat or not? Some pieces of art need to be matted; pastels (so the color doesn’t transfer to the glass), needlework, shiny photos, and delicate papers like rice paper. 

It also comes down to budget  – single mat vs triple mat – and personal preference. Same with the width of mats. I love the look of a wide mat on a piece of art… others don’t.

What To Do After Your Pet Passes  

 

Life can be difficult after the passing of a pet. One is often faced with sadness, loss and longing. So Willow Creek Pet Crematoriums provides pet pick-up at your most convenient time. It is our hope that this will help ease your load. 


WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER YOU CALL WILLOW CREEK

 

After you call Willow Creek, we will:

 

1. Arrange a pick up (or) drop off date/time for your pet. *Willow Creek will pick up in Saskatoon and all surrounding communities. 

 

2. Discuss your options, whether you prefer a shared, individual or private cremation for your pet. 

 

3. Discuss whether or not you want your pet's cremains returned to you. If you do choose to have them returned to you, you will need to choose whether or not to purchase a permanent urn for your pet's cremains, as they are an up-charge, or stick with the basic-temporary urn that it comes with any cremation, as any individual & private packages come with Basic-Temporary Urns.

 

4. Willow Creek will then contact you and arrange a drop-off/pick up time post-cremation.



WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR PETS CREMAINS


After you have received your pet's cremains you have many options to consider when deciding how you can honour the life of your loved pet. 


Here are a few ideas:

 

-Store them securely in an urn and place on your mantle or somewhere on display to reflect upon your time with them.

 

-Place them in a necklace that sits close to your heart

 

-Scatter them somewhere your pet loved to be: The park, the yard, the garden, the lake (check your local bylaws/restrictions first) 

 

-Put sealed cremains in their favourite stuffed toy

 

-Bury your pet's cremains with a memorial/headstone/garden stone.
