Black and White with a Pop of Color...

For Challenge #161 at Creatalicious Challenges, we had to create artwork that used the colors Black and White with one color.
I made my focus color Lagoon (teal).


I used the digital image Mermaid Treasure Map Girl from Hannah Lynn.



I colored in the digital image with my Close to my Heart Watercolor Pencils.

My sentiment is a retired stamp from Close to my Heart.
I used black cardstock as my base. 
With layers of Close to my Heart paper from the So Much Happy Paper Packet.


I added white enamel dots for some dimension. 

I hope you enjoyed my creation.

Journey Two Page Scrapbooking Layout

Happy Sunday!

Here is an adorable two page layout of my son, that I created for the Pile It On! Lots of Layers Challenge. 



The two  12 x 12 base pages are Sweet Leaf cardstock by Close to my Heart.
I used the darker shade side of the cardstock.



The two strips along the side are from the So Much Happy Paper Packet. 

The strip to the right, has the Sapphire Zip Strip still attached for an accent piece.


There is also a piece of Sapphire cardstock from Close to my Heart. 
I used the darker shade see of the cardstock.


The Title for the layout is from the So Much Happy Picture My Life card pack.


The is one of the larger 6 x 4 sized cards.



The small green/blue circle is from the So Much Happy Complements pack.


I tried to keep the layout simple, so that the focus would really be on the photos and the message in my journaling.


I hope you enjoyed my layout!
