White on White

Happy Monday! We have a new challenge for you up on the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge blog.

This week we are talking all things "white."

There really are so many shades of white, from cream to navajo and with applications from nautical to patriotic to winter. How will you use white this week? Will it be with gesso? ink? pen? Or perhaps you will transform simple white cardstock…

I just can't seem to get enough of white lately. I just love layers upon layers of varying shades of white. There is something so soft and ethereal about that look...
To create this mixed media piece, I layered up lots of my scraps, in varying shades of white...
 ... along with a Crate Paper Prize Ribbon, some lovely die cuts, and the slightest bit of green watercolor to pull in the colors from that crate paper embellishment...
Once I had them all glued down with Matte Medium, I finished things off with some misting and pen work. Such a quick and easy way to make the most of my scraps!

Now it's your turn! I can't wait to see what you do with white this week.

Go get crafty and link-up with us! Every week a random winner is chosen to win a $50 spending spree from
