White..with 1 March Challenge

Hi there! This is my entry for the March challenge over at White..with 1. They have chosen Hemlock as their colour this month and it's just gorgeous!


I dipped a paintbrush into some Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist for the background behind the photo and a Zig pen from the Chalk Collection (shock horror! I didn't use a gel pen!) created a border for the layout. The Chalkboard Mist was also used to colour the family and border chipboards from A2Z Scraplets. The word family in the circle was coated in Heavy Gesso by Finnabair for that lovely thick white. This photo is one of my favourites, it's just a quick, dodgy one snapped with my phone in December 2013. Sam had unwrapped a present, put the ribbon around my neck and gave me a smooch. I love moments like these, don't you? :)


Some Kaisercraft embellies - rhinestone flourishes, resin flowers, and collectables from the gorgeous Blue Bay collection were added, along with a super cute Prima birdie.



I really wanted to have journaling, but I just couldn't get it to suit anywhere I placed it and then I realised it could work as hidden journaling! So I popped it behind the photo and voila, perfect :D

Until next time, as always... Keep calm and craft on!
