Matt or Shiny?

Now that is the question?
Hello and welcome, today I have a contribution to the Craft Barn's 'Opposites' week. There will be inspiration galore this week on the blog, do join us if you can!


I made three pictures and I really enjoyed getting all painty.
Pop over to the CB blog for the lowdown ( :D ) on how I changed/ decorated the frames. The outside frames are metallic and really shiny and the recesses are dark and matt, this absorbs light, an effect that I find fascinating :D








I have been a bit busy this last week we had a lovely reunion at home with some of my family from Australia it was a lot of fun :D
Thank you for stopping by, hugs Gay x
 
This is what I used,
Treasure Gold: Onyxite, White Fire and Aquamarine.
