The Project: Design Elements

I’m making progress on my shadow box project that I wrote about yesterday.  Since it’s about my trip to New Orleans, I wanted it to have that New Orleans/Mardis Gras feel.  Since I’ve been thinking about it, I knew I wanted the Harlequin pattern.  Yesterday I added that to a basic white matte.  But something just didn’t look right.  I’d intended to spray paint the frame (currently white) a glossy black to contrast with the rest of the white matte.  After the Harlequin pattern was done, I decided to reverse that.

So I painted the rest of the matte black.  I like the look and can’t wait for it to dry to start assembling.

It’s interesting, one of the things I said I wanted to do (More or Less) was to create more.

So far, so good.
