Black canvas


Hello, and thanks for visiting today, I've finally finished this little 6" x 6" canvas which has been on my desk for a number of weeks in various stages - good job I didn't need it in a hurry!

It was originally given a coat of white gesso.  I added some embossing paste through a couple of stencils and stuck on bits of lace,  paper and clay roses, die cuts, a metal bird and butterfly.
Then, I decided it should be black, so it got a couple of coats of black Adirondack.  Next came the Copper and Silver gilding wax.  I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of black card and heat embossed with Copper EP, cut to fit and then some wax was brushed on the edges.

That's all for  now, hope you've had a good weekend.

Ooh, that's very cool! Love the gilding over the black and brilliant use of stencilled texture amongst the embellishments - I love those wild flowers.

Oh this is a beauty and so incredibly elegant.
There is a gorgeous sense of drama, the gilding against the black and also the use of texture paste. Stunning!

A stunning canvas Avril. I'll admit I have always shied away from going a black based one for fear of losing all the detail and your inspiration has persuaded me to have a go so thank you.
