This light-colored, simple shadowbox picture frame features the look of wood grain over a gesso base. The width is 3/4” and flat across the face, while the rabbet depth is a generous 1-3/4”. This frame is ideal for original artwork that requires a lot of depth, and also for unique shadowboxes where a light feel is desired.
Botanical art, collage, and bird or butterfly themes are all appropriate pairings with this light-colored shadowbox picture frame moulding. For the creative DIYer, try mounting various printed papers on a background, and then float certain items such as photographs and keepsakes, directly onto the backing material.
Color combinations that do well with this light-colored, simple shadowbox picture frame include light pastel colors for a warm, beach or tropical feel, and also light sand or cream colors, and of course light green such as Wise Green 9527 or Sage Advice 9525 in our acid free archival selections. For an earthy orange that complements the warmth of this shadowbox frame, consider Peanut Butter 9583.
Finally, consider this light-colored, simple shadowbox picture frame for a gallery style of picture framing, in which a large 8-ply mat surrounds the art, and several pieces are framed identically in a series. This look is especially pleasant in a “white cube” gallery setting, where a lot of natural light enters a bright contemporary room.
