Black and White

Day off babysitting today so on my list as well as the mundane was playing!
I had been browsing on Pinterest during breakfast and some of the artwork stirred me into action.
I collected together a selection of mainly black materials and then discovered that I would need some white.
I started by brayering my Schoolgirls Story Bumper book page with Fresco Little Black Dress making sure that I left the black and white drawing clear.
With Dylusions black ink, I spritzed through a chevron stencil.
Next I put together a collage of images, papers and washi tape.
I embellished my page with ribbon, tiny flowers, bit of die cut, buttons and Liquid Pearls in black and white.
Finally I wrote in white pen and stood back.
It's one of those "where did that come from?" moments. I really enjoyed putting it together and that's the main reason for doing it. It gave me a few follow up ideas too…..happy days!

  2. Very cool. I have a couple of old girls annual type books. Puts idea on the evergrowing list.

  3. Wow Hazel that's stunning love all your embellishment but just having black and white is really effective. Love that you were inspired to create for yourself by others. One of the things I love about art, it's all connected somehow! Xxx
