Monochromatic Layouts

Every so often I need a little inspiration to have a play and there is nothing like a challenge blog to get your creative mojo going, White with One gives us 1 colour to use with white and this month's in Mauve.  I also like to set MYSELF a challenge every so often and this one was to use a bundle of flowers and bling, those who know me well know that is not usually my thing but I am pretty happy with the results.

 The girl on the swing die is a tattered lace die, unfortunately is has been discontinued - we are down to our very last one.  I have just simply cut the two ropes of the swing at the top. One of the things I love about tattered lace dies is their versatility and how many different ways you can use them

Another of Tattered Lace's discontinued dies is the Heart Dream Catcher - another one that we are down to the last few

 Monochromatic layouts can be tricky and having a bundle of acessories that are all the right colour is not something that we all have at our fingertips.  I have been having a play with Colr Burst from Ken Oliver and whilst it does some pretty cool stuff with water and explosions of colour it is also a very easy Pigment Powder to use and disolves really well in water to make a mist, to colour water colour paper with (the paper used for the Journalling to die up flowers to get them to the right tone) to dip flowers and feathers into for just that right colouring - it just works



 And as much as I tell you guys use your own handwriting, I made a spelling mistake on this one so had to cover it up - a couple of oval tags and some Mini Alphas were just what the doctor ordered.

And some Decorative Wood pieces to finish it off!
