Black and White scrapbooking

Hello and Welcome to our monthly Scrapbooking Blog Hop!!

This month, the theme was decided by Mae and we are to use Black and White photos!!  

Which I really found a challenge!!  So I'm very happy with the final result!

I never use black and white photos, and I always use my photos as a starting point for the colours of my page...... so I had to make the decision myself about what I wanted to create!! ARGH!!

My starting point was some paper from the Delightfully Eclectic paper pack (currently on special this month woohooo!) which features a little strawberry which mirrors the location of our photos!

This paper gave me my colour scheme of Calypso Coral and Bubble Bath.  

I've used the Tropical Leaf bundle to embellish the photos along with the Timeless Arrangements dies for a little extra interest around the Basic Black background piece.  

The amazing Alphabet dies combined with adhesive sheet worked well for my title, and then I doodled free hand around the edge using a Black marker.  

A few Dots around the outside edges finished off my page.  

Make sure you keep hopping to see everyone's great projects!!

Here's the list of everybody in the hop in case you get lost along the way!!

  1. Julia, do you know that I always used to start with my photos BUT these days I seem to scrap the layout and then find my photos... Soo I feel your pain, as that really does help in the choice of colour...
    Love that you have used that Online Exclusives product for your layout as I have seen lots of cards made with it, not too many layouts... Love what you have done with it too... AND I don't own those papers either so it is lovely to see them used as your only get a small sneak peak of the DSP.
    Thanks for your participation in our Blog Hop each month...
    Cheers Shaz
