This is a unique photo collage mat, which is made using board that is coated with a layer of sand on one side. This mat has a palm leaf design in many variations of greens, blues, and pinks, created with colored sand.
There are three openings to fit standard size photos and one square opening, allowing for a little overlap at the edges of the photos. It works well for standard snapshots and school photos. The mat can be turned in any direction to accommodate various photo orientations or layouts.
The mat is hinged to a backboard on which you can attach your photos. The sand mat is sold unframed. (I do not provide framing services.) Unlike my sand paintings, this mat is designed to be placed under glass.
COLORS: Green, pink, blue, lavender, and tan
SIZE: Fits 8x10" frame. Allow for 3/16" thickness for both mat and backing board.
OPENING SIZES: 4x6", 3-1/4"x 3-1/4", and two 1-1/2"x 2-1/4"
CARE: Do not expose to moisture or direct sunlight. Sunlight can affect artwork by fading colors or warping the board. Moisture can separate the surface paper from the board.

REPRESENTATION OF ITEMS: The photographs which depict my products are the best representation I can provide of what the actual pieces look like, however there may be some variation in color due to viewing on different computer monitors.

If something is included, it will be listed in the item description.
****IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Due to Nature Loft Art Studio moving, processing times are longer for customized/personalized orders, and it may take up to 2 weeks for your item to ship out. Beach Sand Paintings will still process within 3 weeks.*****
Your artwork will be created when you supply the personalized information you want inscribed on your piece at the time you place your order, and also send your approval to Nature Loft Art, once you receive the studio confirmation message containing the details of your order. Please send your confirmation message back promptly to avoid delay of your order. If Nature Loft Art does not hear back from you within 3 days, it will be assumed that all details are correct and your customized or personalized order will be created with the information contained in the confirmation message. You will be responsible for any errors, if you do not confirm the details of your order, therefore it is important to keep communication open with the studio after you place your order, and until you have received your order shipment. Occasionally, there will be a question or situation that comes up when creating the work, that I will want to contact you about, although this is rare.
Each piece is unique to each customer. I strive to create artwork as close to the listing photos as possible, however variations will exist. The photos in the listing represent a prototype. For example, with the customized Beach Sand Paintings, shells will be a similar assortment, but may not be exactly the same.
Please allow 3 weeks for a Beach Sand Painting to be created for you. This does not include shipping time. If you need the item in less than 3 weeks, please convo me.
A personalized Christmas ornament will take 3-5 days before shipping to create. (***See IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT above***)
