Hi Friends and Happy Monday! My monochromatic layout today will make you think pink! I fell in love with the new Sweet Baby Girl line from Bella Blvd and just knew I could use these baby products on a page for my 4 year old. Read on for some tips about going monochromatic on your project.
- Bella Blvd Sweet Baby Girl Just a Wink
- Bella Blvd Sweet Baby Girl She Stole My Heart
- Bella Blvd Sweet Baby Girl Pretty as a Posy
- Bella Blvd Sweet Baby Girl Paper Pieces
- Foam Adhesive
- Cloud Punch (these dies by WPlus9 would be perfect!)
- Hero Arts Spray Unicorn White
- Dylusions Spray Ink Slate Gray
- White Gesso
- thread and tissue paper from my stash
I started with a thin layer of white gesso on the Just a Wink paper, keeping the gesso on the top half only; once dry I added a few splatters of white spray ink and then dried it with my heat gun. I used several layers of tissue paper behind my photo, tearing one edge to keep the feeling light and fluffy on my page.
I went though the Paper Pieces pack and pulled out all the pink elements; I knew I was going to layer my background paper on top of the pink She Stole My Heart paper so that was where the idea for this monochromatic page started. I decided to just run with it and make everything pink! I tucked a few of the pink labels on the side of the photo then added little pink thread nests tucked in the layers for texture. When going monochromatic really try to keep your embellishments in the same color family to get the wow factor from going all one color.
I used pink and white banners from the Paper Pieces below the photo, then added my title to the right of this area using Thickers.
I wanted a bit more dimension on the page so I used an old cloud punch from my stash on the Pretty as a Posy paper, then adhered two of the clouds with foam adhesive.
The final step was trimming off a bit from the left and right sides of my layout then adhering all of it to the hearts paper; I used more white spray ink and the slate gray ink for a few more splatters.
I honestly don’t think I’ve ever done a monochromatic page and I have to say I really like the end result. Choose one of your favorite colors and create a monochromatic layout, I think you’ll love the statement it makes! Happy Crafting!
