Black and white week

Chainflower in black and white

Have been busy learning and using Tempera paint this week. The things I ordered finally arrived.
I have loved working with white paint on the black CARB paper. This week I colored canvases with black tempera . When i sprinkled the black color on the first canvas I liked the pattern so I took a photo of that. Then I made the canvas black. When dry I created the white chain art on the black canvas. Think it worked out pretty well. :)

I have also walked the forest to find nice birch bark. I will share what I found next week. :)

Linking up with the following memes. My thanks to the hosts:
