WOW #161: It’s a White Out (and a winner!)

09 Jan

When I look out my office window all I see is whiteness.   Snow is falling from the white cloud-filled sky and adding even more layers to a ground already covered with a white blanket of snow.   It’s so beautiful and pure and lovely…and inspiring!  Yes – all of the beautiful whiteness has inspired me to create a scrapbook page!  (I know, you are shocked…)  I decided to pull out a bunch of WHITE supplies and create a layout!

Here’s the result:

As you can see, when you remove the element of color, the textures play a much bigger role in the design.  Here are some of the details:

I used white foam, chipboard, fabric, flocking, pearls, ribbons, embossing, glitter, stickers, and even stitching.

I have made several cards using all white, for some reason I can't link to them.

LOVE your layout. White is beautiful when you use texture. No wonder wedding gowns are white. They show off the beautiful bride and the textures of lace and fabrics make her beautiful!
