This weeks it's the turn of our lovely Valerie to challenge us to use various shades of winter whites in our projects - white, shimmer white, off-white, ecru, eggshell, etc.
Here's what she said about this color choice, "Well, it wasn't planned, but this theme has a striking significance for those of us here on the East Coast who have just endured a big winter snow storm! All of nature is drooping under the weight of a heavy white winter blanket! Mother Nature really does provide the most beautiful inspiration!"
I have created a journal page for Val's challenge, I hope she approves.. it was great fun and very relaxing :o))
I painted my blank page with a dry brush and some white acrylics.. stamping Journey Collage with Pumice Stone Distress ink onto scrap paper and then onto my page so it wasn't quite as strong a print.. I did this filling up the page..
Friend was stamped directly onto my page using black archival ink for a strong image and then onto spare cardstock which I then cut out and placed over the original stamped image but slightly to the left to create a shadow..
I left the page fairly clean (unusual for one of my journal pages!!) and also around the image.. I wanted to words to blend into the back ground but the image to stand alone.. I really like this page.. the splatters were made using teal ink.
Thank you for calling and leaving a comment if you get the chance. Please remember the challenges are weekly but are open all month long and any stamps can be used..
