White on White

Good morning, everyone!!  Today's challenge is a fun one: White on white, use white products on white paper! Or if that is just too difficult, white with one other colour.

Have a look at what our team created:
I've wanted to try a white on white layout for a while and this was the perfect chance. I had a lot of fun, I love the soft look of the page and the fact that the picture is the main focus.

Don't you ever wanna become a butterfly? Just imagine the world without butterflies. It would be a sadder place without the joy that the sight of a butterfly brings! I said hello to the beautiful flowers and butterflies.

"Nice to meet you!"

I love white on white - it's the perfect excuse to work with layers and structures, gesso and paste. I was out of white burlap, and the corrugated words had a cover with gesso, too.

I have to admit that this challenge brought me a lot of anxiety.  I've been scrapping for over a decade now, and I know my style well enough to be secure in saying that monochromatic pages are NOT ME.  So, I was super grateful that Anna allowed one other color.  A few shades of black got me through, and I'm super pleased with the outcome.  It's really just a haphazard mix of yummy goodies and textures to show off a picture of my exhausted, little, newborn bear on our adventure home from the hospital.

For this layout, I decided to use a bunch of different textures - I used thick paper, cardstock, a doily, a tag and a fabric banner - plus I sprinkled in some sequins and wood veneers to finish off the all white look.

For me, the trick to this challenge was finding the right photo. I think surrounding this particular picture with layers of white cardstock, vellum, washi and thread is a great way to keep the focus on the photo. I couldn't help but use the colorful flowers and alpha as embellishments, though.

We hope the design team has inspired you to have a go! You have until 7th June to link up your layouts to the side bar.

10th May - Pink, Black and Gold

Hey, everyone!!  Today's challenge is a fun one - we've picked a totally fun color scheme that we would love for you to use on your project: pink, black and gold!

Here is what our designers came up with:

As most of my pages are boy pages/masculine pages, I really enjoy when I have an excuse to use pink :-) The photo in mylayout is taken a week ago, when some of the neighbours surprised me on my birthday by popping by in the evening with a bottle of champaign,  just to celebrate me :-)

I've had this stack of ballet photos of my daughter, sitting on my desk, waiting for just such an occasion as this palette, for nearly two months.  So, as soon as our new challenge came across the DT Blog, I knew they'd be the perfect place to start.  A mix of leftover goodies from several recent Noel Mignon kits provided the foundation.

Such a fun color combination to work with!  I used some of my fun Pink Paislee Bella Rouge papers to create this layout.  I was also inspired by the current Sketchy Saturday at Paper Issues.


Here is my LO created with shades of pink, gold for the title and a touch of black for the written


This was really a challenge for I don't really have  gold  in my stash! But two or three papers were enough ! The result was a surprise for me! I totally love this color combination!!

Did the design team do a great job with this challenge?!

You have until 7th June to link up your layouts.

Happy Scrapping!
