The colour of white!

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

Doodlebug recently challenged it's designers to work with one colour and really showcase how a single hue can make a strong statement on our projects. Now I put my hand up for Lily White which seemed like a good idea at the time...

PROJECT | Colour Challenge Layout

... until I struggled with getting the design to work on a white background. So, I had to deviate from the plan just a little and use coloured cardstock to make the white pop.

WHERE THE IDEA CAME FROM | My doodle pad. As I've mentioned before, I cannot start a project without having a design drawn on paper so I spend quite some time scribbling down ideas until something resonates with me.

Finally I had some fun adding splashes of white ink to soften the overall appearance of the circle around my photo.

ANNND that why is it boys always have the longest, lushest lashes?? My grand Boy's are STUNNING:):) Let's see if THIS comment 'sticks':):)

  5. It looks amazing. Love how soft this page is and your awesome stitching.

  6. I just love love this one! and need to ask you permission to "lift"... I have not had time to create the other one you so kindly allowed me to copy. I just created one inspired by your stitching which I just love!
