L'amour with the Gold and Gray

"Gray is the color of intellect, knowledge and wisdom.  It is perceived as classic, refined, dignified, and conservative.  Gray is a perfect neutral that lives between the extremes of black and white, which is why designers often use it as a background color." ~Quote: Author Unknown~  

Add a bit of gold and it becomes magical!

Here is a quick run down on the particulars of the project.... on these canvases, I used Dixie Belle Manatee Gray for the base and accented the pieces with a French print stencil that I had on hand. Additional colors used on the canvases were Mason Dixon Gray and Cotton.


I used the IOD furniture Stamp Craquelure, along with another stencil of birds and butterflies, which really made the gold frames pop.


Additional elements of the project that I used, was size and gold leafing.  Dixie Belle Gold Guilding Wax on frames.  DB satin top coat with a couple drops of Up in Smoke VooDoo gel stain to seal in the pictures.
