I made this monochromatic white layout for the Kerri Bradford Studio design team back in June and I wanted to share it here with you today to hopefully inspire you to create a textured layout!
To make this layout, I die cut the dahlia background from scratch cardstock and use it as a stencil along with modeling paste to create a texture on a white cardstock background. Die cut “bloom” from smooth white cardstock and adhere it near the bottom. Punch butterflies from cardstock and machine stitch through the centers. Paint three wood veneer butterflies white. Die cut a larger butterfly from vellum and hand stitch the details (trim it in half). Layer a black & white photo over doilies and tags above the title then adhere all the butterflies above and below. Accent with ribbons, a button, pearl stickpins, and a typed caption. Write the journaling on a small doily and finish the title with Thickers.
Monochromatic layouts and projects are some of my favorite to create because it challenges me to only use what I have in front of my face – I pull all of the product first and then I can only use that! As limiting as it is, it’s also quite freeing! Hope that makes sense 😉
Have you ever made a monochromatic page before? What did you think? I LOVE the texture and dimension that are created when only one color is used! Give it a try!
