Pretty as a Picture, a Dark Monochromatic Layout with Karine

Dear crafty souls,

It's Karine here today to share with you another layout I made with the most amazing mixed media products ever!

I don't know if I was in a bad mood, but I ended up creating a pretty dark layout. Lets take a look at it.

Pretty as a Picture


I started out my layout by adding some white gesso on the background in a roughly diamond shape.  I then added some Lava Flow Paste-Eez through a stencil. I love the dark lines it created.


Over the white gesso, I splattered some No One's Chrome Inklingz, some Before Dawn Vibez and some Hi Ho Silver Blingz. 


I chose a frame (the Frame Maria's from 2Crafty Chipboard) and I painted it with Gritty Graphite Texturez. I love the uneven look I got with the Texturez.


Over my frame, I laid some ivy chipboards, which I painted with Shimmerz Tar, Tar AcriTonez. I love the black against the background and the Gritty Graphite chipboard.


I also painted my title piece with Shimmerz Tar, Tar AcriTonez, but I dry brushed some No One's Chrome Inklingz over the edges to make it stand out a bit more.
