Welcome, Daisies, to another TN Tuesday post! Today, Evelyne, Candy, and I are exploring memory keeping layouts with a black and white theme. Let’s have a look!
Evelyne was on vacation when she created this gorgeous layout, so she had limited supplies from the July South Beach kits with her – but sometimes, less is more, and this streamlined layout is just lovely!
Here is what Evelyne says about her spread:
For this project I decided to use only black and white to put the photo in the foreground. Being on vacation I used very few things but sometimes less is better! The left page has a vertical line of washi, a stamp (if I remember the stamp is from last summer) and the date; while the right page has the title stamped (inspired by the sketch of the month of August), a tag and 2 diecuts, I just added a clip! I really like the final effect because it reminds me of the feeling of serenity I experienced in the photo.
I particularly like how the photo provides a bright pop of color against the black and white embellishments:
Much like Evelyne, I chose black and white embellishments and journaling to complement the color in the photographs in my spread. I chose a plain grid layout and added black and white die cuts to create a pattern on one side, with some plain journaling on the other to balance it all out. Since the topic of the spread is my grandmother’s cooking, the food and drink theme of the Farmer’s Market kit is just perfect:
A thin black mat and a bit of the chicken wire acetate provide a nice base for the photos, and once that was done, it was a simple matter to choose die cuts to frame the whole thing.
On the opposite page, a pen line and a single die cut help to pull the whole thing together.
Finally, here is an absolutely gorgeous completely black and white layout by Candy – just stunning!
She explains her thought process here:
For this black and white theme, I decided on black & white pattern paper (taken from this month’s kit) on one side and a solid black on the other. Then I decided to use some of the black and white die cuts on one side and a simple journaling card and a photo on the other. It was so easy and simple to put together and I will always be a big fan of the whole black and white theme.
I love the balance between solid and pattern in this layout!
