I decided to continue my 6x12 streak for another month and pulled out a photo of my husband and me from last year's holiday party. I've wanted to use this photo for a long time, but it was quite black and I wasn't sure what to do with it. I decided to cut around the edges of our body and glue it against the bottom of my page. Then I added the chipboard banner from Chalk Studio.
After that, I pulled out the chipboard sheet from the Lost and Found 3 - Oliver line and added the gold banner. Once I saw the two together, I decided to challenge myself and see if I could keep the whole layout just black & white & gold. Here's what I ended up with:
Even though the lack of color on this page is very much unlike me, I kind of like how it turned out. I ended up cutting up the Label Stickers in the Chalk Studio and then stamped on them in white so I could create the lines I like and then journal. I also added a few banners from the Lost and Found 3 and the enamel dots from Cut & Paste.
On the top, I added one tiny bit of journaling between the banners and cut out the extra gold from the Lost and Found 2's Adore paper and the circle gold is behind one of the brads in Lost and Found 3. I always make a point to take my embellishments apart and rearrange them as I see fit.
I hope you like the regal look of the black, white and gold page, as much as I do. If you haven't tried one, I highly recommend it and if you just want to start small, how about trying to do some journaling with white pen this week?
Thank you so much for letting me share and see you in October!
