Some people say that black is an absence of color.
Well...I have to disagree. ;)
And so I thought I would encourage my students to find the beauty in black...
This is a sample from my new 2014 Black Beauty class during which we create the cover of a journal.
I will never get tired of playing with gels, inks and paints to get some texture magic going on.. I designed this journal having this particular idea in mind - it just had to be sturdy enough to endure all the mixed-media action I'm so passionate about.
Obviously, there are lots of heavy embellishments involved and during this class we end up with one-of-a-kind creations to prove that black can be beautiful, too.
Never flat, never dull! Amazingly deep and iridescent!
You can find the journals of my design (large & small) in our shop, there's also a wide variety of Mechanicals - my metal embellishments and all sorts of media to create the feeling of depth: my favorite Silks acrylic paints, Primary Elements pigments, inks of all different kinds and many more!
So...have I convinced you that black can be exciting...?! ;)
