I'm back to share another layout from the awesome 'My Story' Range available at All About Scrapbooks. Last week I did a bright funky page about myself and my daughter, and I was really taken with the gold accents.
So this week I decided to do a monochromatic page, using black, white and pops of gold.
I smeared some gesso over the paper, and then some gold paint. I then gathered together scraps that happened to be sitting on my desk from other layouts, from both the My Story range and also the Basic Grey Barista Range. I also added a Simple Stories Frame - I am really loving the look of frames in the background of my layouts. I like how it adds depth and layering without 'blocking' everything. I love mixing up ranges.....at first it can be a little scary, but starting with a monochromatic theme can really help at first, as you are really only searching for one colour to mix.
I added embellishments to the layers - lots of word stickers, which I'm also a little obsessed with! I cut a few arrows out of a 12x12 paper. The gold in this paper range is stunning. I love how it went so well with my bright, fresh layout from last week, but also feels so 'classy' added to black and white.
Of course a layout of mine at the moment wouldn't be complete without a few sequins.......here's a close up...
Back again soon!
I am so LOVING playing with these amazing products!!
