Framing artwork

Hi, I'm trying to frame a piece of artwork. I'm unable to find a framing kit because of its odd dimensions. Can anyone guide me how to frame it myself from scratch? I have seen wooden frame borders in Home Depot but I'm not sure how to proceed from there. Should I have glass cut to size or is there any lighter material that I can use instead of glass? (I had once bought a framing kit that had a thin, light plastic sheet instead of glass and I had liked it.) How do I then join the glass/replacement piece and framing borders, etc. Please note that I'm a novice so please be generous while giving advice/comments.

Thanks.

Sorry but framing pictures is something I've never done, might have better success asking this up in the Carpentry & Woodworking Forum, here's that link.
