More Black and White Themed layouts ....

It's me Wendy with my last 2 layouts for the month

Firstly let me apologise for the photo, the light has been awful here for taking photos and unfortunately the white cardstock has come out looking a little stripey!!

Anyway white is the colour of the day today ... with my favourite black and a hint of dark teal blue.

Using a pack of Core’dinations all in the family fade to black cardstock (these packs are awesome value!) I’ve used white, black and grey cardstock together with a blue card from the Aqua Blues pack.

I cut up strips of the white, black and blue card and then weaved them together to make a panel which I then mounted on a piece of black cardstock.

I covered two thirds of my white cardstock with some Imaginisce To Love Cherish Katherine paper (reverse side) and after positioning my panel and photo on the page I played with some further strips to ‘frame’ my photo.

I added little off cuts of the card randomly on the strips and added ‘Chill Out’ and ‘Cool’ from the my2angels boys ribbon to two pieces of card and mounted them on 3D tape.

I have also used the small B&B mirrored hearts from the Love & Kisses and 2 buttons and 1 photo corner which I have covered in a white enamel but the same effect can be achieved with white paintn or ink and some dimentional magic. For my title I have used some Rusty Pickle Alphas (which have unfortunately sold out forever since RP are no longer!) and some Jenni Bowlin Circle Alphas.

and my second layout

This photo was taken at one of my DS’s football games and I got to thinking ... that come rain or shine he plays footy on a Saturday morning! And come rain or shine we go to watch him!! He plays #6 and has done for a few years now so I included that in my title too!

Using a pack of Core’dinations All In the Family Fade to Black cardstock I’ve used white for the background and some black for a side panel.

I used some Bo Bunny Mama Razzi Aperature (dark side) as a strip down the side and to mount my cut out photo on, together with a strip of left over Websters Lifes Portrait Reflections from last months pack.

I mounted my photo onto white cardstock which I inked in the colours of my LO. I punched a border on the Websters paper and have then added my title discreetly on the spots of the paper using Jenni Bowlin Tiny Circles alpha (a new fav of mine and the colour matched perfectly!). I’ve used both a black and a brown of this alpha and added some brackets and a #4 from AC Thickers Jewelry Box black alpha. The brackets I put around the ‘6’ on the Jenni Bowlin Adore Bingo Card.

To finish I added some Buzz & Bloom clouds, lightly rubbed with white ink, a painted chipboard sun and rain drops cut from some left over Mama Razzi paper. (Unfortunately we didn’t know that B&B were closing when I used the clouds on my LO, but Tracy a new stock of the Scrapware clouds which are just as gorgeous!)

Other materials:

Chipboard flower, painted with yellow paint and a Pearl paint.

I have absolutely LOVED this month SO much ... thanks you for the B&W theme it was awesome!!! Wendy:)

You are very welcome Wendy, I have loved everything the DT has sent through this month - the Black and White theme has been a real winner and so inspiring.

I will be back in a few days with my attempts at the black and white theme ... my mojo decided to visit me a few times over the weekend so I managed to grab the little bugger with both hands and create before he left again!
