Challenge #218 - White on Black
This week's challenge was to use a black tile and tangle with white; you can see the challenge here along with everyone else's entries.
It's been quite a long time since I have done anything on black; one of the reasons is that I always mess up and instead of doing highlights with the pencil at the end, I do "shading" as usual, and it just looks wrong! Today I kept thinking to myself "highlights!", "highlights!", "highlights!"... and... it looks completely different than my other ones :). I had fun!
The journal from a file folder I was working on last week... it went through a very, very, very ugly phase. I almost threw it in the trash, but then thought... well if it is trash anyway, let me play with it, it certainly cannot get any worse.
So I went crazy with it :) and now it looks completely different than it did last week, but it is growing on me. Mind you, I'm still not happy with it but hope I will eventually "fix" it.
I did not put all the pages in yet (and just put rubber bands for now), but will finish it in the next few days as we have a long weekend coming up :). Here are some really bad pictures of it right now, just so you can see more or less what it looks like. I will get better pictures when it is done and it is actually light out.
I also received the envelopes back from the swap and will try to take pictures and post - most had glitter on them, so I need to do something with that as I don't want glitter everywhere. :)
