Anyhow, this afternoon I decided to have a crack at a small version on canvas....
I needed to find a small photo - preferably black and white - to use... obviously I don't have any of me - but I did find some that I took on a visit to Kew Gardens - I used to love black and white photography, but haven't done any for ages now... But I'm waffling. I found a suitable picture that I could crop without losing the focal part of the picture.
Anyhow I used some glimmer mists (a gold, a silver and key lime pie) I chose some green Prima flowers. to tie in with the natural theme, some leftover sparkly mesh and a couple of flourishes which I 'painted' black with archival ink and then added some Treasure Gold (white fire) and a couple of metal flowers.
When you've finished placing everything on (though I did add the black drops last of all) you give it a squirt with black - this is sooo scary, and my black (Black Marble Dylusion) did end up a bit heavy handed in places.
