Black and White Harlequin Art Niche

This art niche is in a kitchen, so it was fun to get a little playful.  The home owner had her mind set on black and white harlequin.  I wanted to age the process a little bit so it didn't look novelty.  I applied a crackle texture, then a watered down beige glaze.  Next, I stencilled on the diamond patter with black, but using a dry brush technique.  The results are below:

Lovely indeed.  I love the candle/chandelier hanging in the niche!

Use your imagination, and color those are niches!  It makes a BIG difference!

Have a great day...can you believe it is the last day of January?  We have already gone through a month in 2012.  Time flies...so absorb each day!
