24th April - White with One

Today's challenge is...

White with One - we want to see your white and one colour of your choice layouts. (We will allow a little bit of black in accents)

I enjoyed so much this challenge, even thought it was not easy for me at all. I use a lot of colors in my scrapbook process, and I like the colors' contrast on my page. My choosen color is gold. I wanted to add dimenzion for my white background, so I designed a floral background cutfile. The petals' and leaves' shadow draw a lovely pattens on my paper. You can download this free background file from my blog (click on my name). I hope you will enjoy it!

The design team's layouts...

For this challenge, I decided to go pink and use a lot of texture (this is not anything new for me) but I also added some twine and a flare button (this is unusual for me). I enjoyed working on the white background as it helped me showcase the different shades of pink Heidi Swapp mists - how pretty do they look sprinkled all over the modelling paste design?! I am looking forward to seeing your creations and colour choices :)


What else could I choose for this challenge than pink as this is my favourite colour in scrapbooking? I love the spring at home and miss it so much. This is why I documented a beautiful tulip from my Mother's garden. Every flowers has a story there, it's just lovely.  I decorated my layout with branches what I cut out with Sizzix and Silhouette Cameo.

I tend to struggle with monochromatic palettes, because they often make a page look flat.  However, playing around with lots of shades of the same color, in combination with mists and paints and loads of layers, seemed to diminish my trepidation.  I just love how this one, of my kiddos showing off a little of their Kansas City Royals fever, turned out.


I thought I would find this challenge hard as I like to scrap with several colours. But I found that when I chose various patterns in my chosen teal colour I liked the effect just as much. Teal is my favourite colour to use in my scrapping at the moment, will you be choosing your favourite colour for this challenge too?


Decided to change my style up and do a 8 1/2 by 11 inch layout. I Love how my layout turned out using bits and pieces from Dear Lizzy "Happy Place" and Crate Paper "Hello Love" collections. I hv to say this was defiantly a challenge as  love to use more than several colours. 


I have to say I did indeed find this a challenge! I have chosen pink and gone very girly for my layout. I just loved this digital floral frame cut file and think it is the feature of my layout. I have sewn on my layout to add some texture. I can't wait to see all your creations and what colour you choose!

This time the one colour I used was mint colour.(Heidi Swapp-sweetmint ink)
First, I created the ink droplets by blowing through a straw which made the pattern.
I like mint color. Which colour do you like?!

I chose to use blue for my layout - it symbolizes the sky on a layout about spring.  I admit that it was in part so that I could use the new roll of washi tape with different shades of blue in it.  The title, being a bold shot black on page of placid blues, is meant to "awaken" the viewer.  Did it work?

I hope that's given you lots of inspiration to get you started on your White with One layouts. We would love to see what you create, please link up your layouts to the side bar.
Happy Scrapping!
