Black & White


The background is a piece of thick cardboard with a piece of orange coloured fruit netting attached.  I covered the netting with a piece of tissue paper and used mod podge to adhere it to the card.  I initially painted with gesso and once dry painted over with white and pearl acrylic dabbers.  The music image is coated in ice resin.  The stitching down each side is hand stitched and is quite thick as I used black embroidery thread.

You have such wonderful ideas. This works so well and that background is fabulous. The black stitching brings it all together.

Don't know how I missed this. Love the background you have done - what a clever idea. I love texture and this certainly fills the bill. BTW you have reminded me about the ice resin - wonder if I have enough dollars to get some?

Gorgeous. Love black and white anyway, but I love the texture here and the whole look of it.
