Inspiration Wednesday number 18 at last complete.
Staring at pages of black gesso for far too long is not productive.....so I just plunged in and kept on going!!
Have not done anything quite like this before and that's why I was hesitant to start!
In the end it's much better than I could have imagined!! Who knew? ;)
I had hoped to learn a bit more about the application of the acrylic paint to make the flowers....but I'm afraid Donna's video was on fast forward at the nitty gritty points!!
I ended up doing a mixture of one stroke type painting and just making a mess ;) The leaves really need a bit of practise.....but I really like the way the vase turned out :)
I decided to keep the inclusion in and tried to make it become part of the pages.
Donna mentioned a chalk board effect but she went down a different path....I decided to give it a go on the back of the inclusion. Needs a bit more practise I think.
After dithering so long to start putting the colours down I'm quite pleased at the effect.....although it does look best from a distance!!!! Rofl
Thanks for looking
