I just recently decided to paint a frame, mat, and background for my family pictures. My house is very open, and because of this is painted a universal pale beige. When we had our family pictures taken and framed, I lived in a different house, so they were all framed in white. They were great against a medium jade wall, and popped beautifully. White frames against the current house walls looked awful, hence my decision to paint a frame for them. I marked off the areas to be framed with your tape, pressed the tape into the textures as hard as I could, then painted a brown frame, and a background color. The result is a rather uniform fuzzy edge all around the pictures. It's kind of like an eye test, if you squint. After I finished it and pulled the tape off, at first I was disappointed - then the result began to grow on me. Now I like it, but if I had known beforehand, I think I would have spackled the texture out of the frame, then used the tape. I could send you a picture if you want - it is kind of interesting.
