123 challenge blog - April

Well it's been a little while crafters, but I'm glad to be back today sharing with you my entry into the 123 Challenge Blog for April..
I LOVE WHITE ON WHITE! So this was definitely a fun layout for me this morning!


This layout features a photo of Moona (the teddy bear friend from Hunter's Prep class last year, that got to spend a week at everyone's house) on the Yeppoon main beach..  To me, it defines the whole sense and magic of the word "peaceful"..
I started out by using a white shimmer cardstock for the base. Two more designer white papers were torn and placed on top.. I found it easier to use a strip of off cut to get it all the strips organised and then stuck the entire thing onto the layout..  
Due to the lighting I started to get a little worried that the layout was not going to show up as true white as it actually is.. Unfortunately, that is exactly what has happened no matter where I tried to take the photo.. But I can promise that it is ALL WHITE!
Once the paper was stuck down, I wiped a random layer of White Gesso on top.. You can't see this well in the photo, but can IRL.
Then using a Memory Maze Pebble stencil, I used clear Impasto and sprinkled generously with Distress Clear Rock Glitter..
The photo I have coloured the edges with the white Gesso and coloured the beautiful Memory Maze chipboard doily piece with Gesso and a top sprinkle of White embossing powder..
To me - White on White is all about LAYERING and TEXTURES!
The chipboard flowers have been painted with White Paint..
The embellishments were then added;  the title, the paper & fabric flowers, white pearls and a Memory Maze Bling piece..
This is such a stunning page IRL.. I loved making it!!
