THE CATCH OF THE DAY



Hi everyone, here is my latest layout using a sketch from Scrap That  - October and an all white challenge at the Flying Unicorn for my inspiration.
The trouble is because everything is white its hard to pick out the details!
Anyway, here is what I did,
I started off with some white bazzill cardstock and used it for matting my photos and for the background.
I then used some home made paste (I will share the recipe later) and a Prima honeycomb mask and I masked up the four corners of the page. I was quite pleased with the results as the honeycomb came out really well.
I adhered a large doily and added the photos.
Then I die cut three small retro hearts and three small butterflies plus a larger butterfly.
I made a scalloped border (unfortunately you cant really see it, and  stuck that down. I used some ric rak in white on top and I painted some holey border in white for another border.
I then started to add my flowers and pearls, and a hand made stick pin in white pearls.
I added a title and the date and there you have it, an all white page. Why not give it a try. See sketch below.


Here are some close ups
