January Layout with White..with 1 - Placid Blue

January was a crazy month for scrapbooking and getting anything done. My family and I moved from 1 state to another just before christmas and are just starting to settle in and find out feet. I have yet to find the local scrapping shop or spotlight - i think my hubby is happy with this.

January's  layout was done as a collaboration between White.. with 1 and sketchabilities.
WW1 supplied the colour and sketchabilities supplied the sketch and they had to be used together!



I had an absolute ball with this layout and used an image I had been storing for a while of a good friends little girl - Alexis. She has the bluest eyes and this was perfect for her!

Layout Details:
Background was washed with Making Memories (yes, that old!) 'cornflour blue' paint and a sponge.
Circles were done using white stickles paint.
Tags and blue paper and white fabric doilies are from the stash.
The white flower is from the current 'Just Add Paper Kit - Coral Glitz Kit at D-lish scraps.
The feathers, bows and birds are all hand poured resin and from this ebay shop.

White with 1 .. December Layout - Paloma

This colour absolutely screams winter and christmas to me it is a really silvery grey!
 Even though our Christmad here in Australia is full of sunshine, heat and icecream! ..

 I could resist using this image of my lil folks eating their icecreams and making icecream faces for me at the same time. I dont want them to get any bigger, they are awesome as they are right now.

Items used on this layout:
  • Honeycomb Mask on background mixed with grey paint and gesso for texture and height.
  • Parts of it were also 'swiped' with the same paint mix and a credit card to make it less even.
  • Fonts are by AC Thickers and HS Ghost alpha (from years ago!)
  • The flair is from D-lish scraps in one of their past 'just add paper kits'.
 The embellishments of the doily and chevron are from Charms Creations and were gifted to the Creative Team at White.. with 1 for this months layout.  s.

White.. With 1 Challenge (radiant orchid) Oct 2014

This one had me stumped for quite a few days! .. and I set the colour for the challenge - it was all my own doing!

Purple is not usually a colour I work with so it took a lot of thinking and agonising rather than just jumping in. A real challenge for sure.

I dont have much of a stash of anything purple (my girl is a pink and orange fan - I prefer red).
So the choices were very limited on what I had to use so I ended up using some TA Glimmer Mist in
'Pashmina' to have a play on the spotty BB white cardstock background. Just applied it using an eye dropper in big amounts and 'chased' the ink around the page with a straw being careful not to breathe it on or spit on the layout! It came out brilliantly!.

Also included bits & pieces from all over the place including a white paper ball swizzle stick from e2c earlier this year! .. I handmade the dotty flair button using some fabric I had and some sheer organza type netting (think it was from a HS collection YEARS AGO!) was bundled up behind the button using helmar 450 and held in place with a peg until it set.
The bow was made using some d-lish glitter washi tape and just cut & folded into a bow. The clouds are from Studio Calico (I think).

Have you checked out what the rest of the WW1 design team did this month? ..
Lots of different and gorgeous inspiration to be seen!

  • There is also a line of the light pink bling to the left of the page.
  • Yellow chevron bag under the photo.
