Question Cutting art paper to fit odd frame size

Hi I think I first posted this question to the wrong forum. I know how to cut paper (pastel) to fit a standard sized frame. But I can't remember how to cut the paper to fit an 8 x 10 image into an odd sized frame. I have a 10.5 x 21 frame I would like to use but I need to resize the image.

Thanks for any help!

Re: Cutting art paper to fit odd frame size

Not sure what you're asking - matting an 8x10 painting to put into a 10.5x21 frame is going to look strange because the frame is so much longer than the painting.

If you are talking about resizing a digital image from 8 x 10 to 10.5x21 - then again it's going to look odd, out of proportion, because the image ratios are so different you'd have to stretch the image in one direction making things look too long and skinny, or too fat and short.

Same here. Proportions make a difference. What do you desire as an end product?
