You cannot imagine how desperately I wanted to just flick a bit of black paint here and there on my clean, white background. It was sooooooo frustrating. Thanks Catie LOL! In the end I used my embellishments to create textural interest and detail. The twine and wire were a great starting point.
Working with embellishments from D-lish Scraps certainly helped me to pull this layout together. I've used .. a white Bitty Bag, a strip of Bling from an old Just Add Paper kit, a black Mini Wooden Peg, Flair Buttons from the kraft monochrome pack, a black polka dot Pick 'n' Place Bow, black Coloured Wire, Freckled Fawn wood chips, a white, circle, scalloped Journal It and newly released black D-lish Dots.
Funnily enough, despite the lack of mixed media, or maybe because of it, I love this layout. It was great to be pushed so far outside my comfort zone. Thanks for the inspiration Catie although I almost dread to think what you have in store for us next!
