XOXO November Challenge: Black


How does that inspire you? That's what we want to know this month over at the True XOXO Girls Challenge Blog. Head over to check out how the other talented ladies were inspired, but before you go, here's my interpretation, featuring my favorite shot of my Rileigh about 8 years ago at Christmas time with hubby:

I started by misting black cardstock with my own recipe of white acrylic paint mist, followed by a black acrylic paint mist. This chipboard heart from stuff2scrap features the same mists, with the addition of twine from The Twinery and some Glossy Accents around the edge. I love that stuff! I couldn't stop with just the heart...I added some to the title as well, highlighting the MLS alpha "love," covering the Doodlebug alpha "those," and underlining the Bella Blvd. alpha "big eyes."
Misted the Petaloo and Kaisercraft flowers here, adding Kaisercraft black pearls. More twine.
See the Cotton Candy and Diamond Stickles down there? I used papers from the Witching Hour kit from the Scraptastic Club, Echo Park goodness :) Distressed with my cute little Heidi Swapp edge distresser.
The little dots you see are Glossy Accents, and the twine here is stitched across the bottom.
There you have it! Head over to XOXO and check out what the other ladies did with this word prompt, and show us how this prompt inspires you for your chance to be a guest designer!!!!

Oh yeah- I really like this new photo-makes all your elements POP!!! That's a CHIPBOARD heart? It looks acrylic!!! Great job on that!! Fantastic design- I'm totally drooling to hear more about mixing your own mist from acrylic- that's fabulous! Thanks for swinging by my blog- I have added your family names to my "thinking of" list today. :) Hugs Momma!
