The Challenge + One

Well I have finally finished my White + One layout for over at Colorful Creations, I have been working on it since the challenge was first posted but have had to put it on the back burner a couple of times to finish of other projects.  Which is the great thing over at CC, you have a month to get it done so it allows you time to participate if you have other more pressing deadlines.  So here was this months requirements. 

Create a layout using the following criteria (white plus kraft paper).  What this means is you are to create a layout using only TWO colors and one of those colors MUST be WHITE the other color is KRAFT paper.

I really love these sorts of  challenges, it gets you delving through your stash, and its amazing the little pieces of this and that you find.  I generally put it all aside so that is close at hand when I start creating.

I started with  my base Kraft sheet and randomly stamped with white stazon then embossed.  Glue down some doily and then added some stitching.  Oh and some paint splattering!!!

Unfortunately you cannot see the detail on the little mask, which I just had to add to my page as a bit of a fun piece.  I used a prima mask with textured paste to give it some detail, once that dried I spritzed with Maya silver mist and added kindy glitz, so much better to see this in real life.

Other Products used: Prima flowers, Dusty Attic Mask, Stickers are Basic Grey and Fancy Pants, Melissa Francis Resin charms, Sassafras Papers, Prima Build a Stamp, MM Patterned Paper, Hambly Transparencies, Twine, Word Stamps.  And if you have a fabric stash of bridal lace check that out for pieces you can cut off, I have a huge stash of fabric and it was only recently brought to my attention some of the details lace work that can be cut up and utilised on your layouts.

Well thanks for looking and why not pop on over to Colorful Creations and grow with us.  

Again thank you to those who have stopped by and left your lovely comments they really are appreciated.
