Welcome to another month at Creative Embellishments, This month is all about monochromatic. I originally was going to make this project for the month of February not totally thinking about the big picture. I had all intentions but then I pulled out the challenge for April and said “well what what was I thinking?”
This project started out with ATC’s and some mixed media paper. I wasn’t sure if I was going to do watercolour but changed that up quick. (I am not a big watercolour girl.)
I used some matte black embossing paste and the Triangle, circle and Square stencils to add a bold background. I new I needed to have more texture and dimension so I dug in my stash and found some matching circles, rectangle and triangle panels.
I painted each of them white and matched up twine and flowers. I picked out some mini leaves and painted them contrasting black and highlighted with some matching wax before finishing it all off with a sentiment.
I made a short video of the creative process.
Here are a few close-ups.
