White with 1 challenge - Lavendar Lane

Well, I have to say the White with 1 challenge was a massive challenge for me!

Lavendar Lane is definitely not my thing. Actually, I recently sorted through all my papers to make room for new stock and I got rid of almost all shades of purple.

But I'm not one to shy away from a scrappy challenge :)

Right from the start, I wanted to scrap a black and white photo with this page.

The page turned out quite minimalist indeed.

I used Close To My Heart ink in Pansy to stencil the sun burst.
Then I hand stitched over some of the rays.

Papers were from Hip Kit Club and Close To My Heart.
I added some white tissue paper for a bit of texture.

I inked the XOXO wood veneer with CTMH pansy ink. It came out a little too dark so I hid part of the wood veneer beneath the photo.

How cute is that bulldog clip! Perfect colour too.

My journaling cluster included a sticker journal tab and tissue paper.
I added some stapling to give some texture.

Scattered over the page were sequins, gems and tiny florals.

Thanks for popping by :)
