Black with Two February Challenge Entry

Hi Everyone,
Here is the mood board from Black with Two:

And here is my entry:

Here is a close up:  

I creates this page by firstly coating the black cardstock with black gesso. While this may sound a little over the top, I wanted the color to stay out of the cardstock where it loses it's vibrancy. Next I used moulding paste through a stencil. I then let that dry and while that was happening I chose my photos and the papers to match both the photos and the mood board. I very loosely followed the idea of the sketch and followed the idea of the picture with alternating colors. I then ripped the papers to the correct height and then cut them to the required length. I also distressed the photos and glued them onto the photo mat. When the background was dry I completed my page.  

See you all again soon.
