Going Bold with Black & White

Jessy has a bold layout for us today with lots of black and white! Just like her, I am loving the look of black and white more and more each day!! I love how her choice of background papers allow all of the light and bright colors to really pop! It's such a great use of contrast!!

These days, I really love these colors: black & white! In fact, I'm beginning to notice that I am slowly drawn to black and white more & more each time. Haha! 

I absolutely adore the black & white patterned papers that Maggie designed for her collections. Particularly, I really love the black & white diagonal stripe from the Flea Market collection and of course the famous black & white polka dots from the Styleboard collection. 

I wanted to create mostly black & white for my layout with a hint of pastel colors. So I chose to adhere half of the diagonal b&w stripe patterned paper onto a white cardstock. Then, I layered the rest of the patterned paper on top of each other. In between the papers, I added a chipboard frame, doily, vellum and some stickers. 



To give a personal touch to my layout, I painted those flowers with gelatos & cut them out. It was pretty fun & easy to paint. Give it a try the next time you create your layout!  Thank you for stopping by today! Xoxo Jessy
