The embellished black wood monogram



Thanks for the encouraging feedback on my embellished white wood monogram. Here is the "dark" version with the black wood monogram. [sinister music plays in the background...]


I decided to do a tone-on-tone play with black.


I started with some black leather from an old bag that I adhered to the wood monogram with gel medium. Then I trimmed off the excess leather [now this took an extremely long time because apparently you need shears to cut through leather..]


Then I adhered lace using gel medium. The white under the lace you see is gel medium...it dries clear. Now, you can use any adhesive you want. I like gel medium because it gives me time to move an element around if I don't like it and it isn't sticky to touch.


Then I finished with a large black sequinned bloom and a Prima charm.

What do you think?
