Round 2 Fun in White!
Heading into Round 2 of the Supreme Scrap Tournament. First up, I've never done a single monochromatic lay out in my life. I am thankful that this tournament really challenges us to work outside our comfort zone.
I only had 2 black and white photos. So my choices were limited. And I was only choosing between white and kraft for my monochromatic colors.
It took me three hours to make this double lay out. Apparently it takes a lot of work and time to do this.
I ended up using like 5 sheets of white cardstocks for this lay out. I punched 2 sheets of paper using different border punchers. The more intricate the punch, the better. I wanted to recreate the beautiful lace work of the bridal gown. With the strips of paper border strips, I glued them down on the white cardstocks. I was measuring with ruler, sometimes I do get OC.
Next up, I piled on trims and die cuts. Those die cuts were cut in white foam, but they had a grey tinge on them. So I had to paint over them with gesso.
I finally get to use my Maya Road White sequins which I have been hoarding for the longest time!
I added resins from Prima and white paper flowers.
Lastly, the title I DO, I used white thickers from American Crafts.
Who knew I had so many white embellishments in the house?
Will be making more monochromatic lay outs in the future? Probably not. It was a arduous process. And monochromatic is never my first choice. I like to live my life in full color!
