Welcome to June ...

Our colour this month might just take you boldly where no-one has gone before ... introducing

We hope you like our inclusion of a sketch courtesy of PageMaps to help inspire you further. You don't have to use this to put in an entry but we'd love it if you do :)

 Courtesy of  PAGE MAPS

and some totally amazing inspiration from our wonderful team ...

(in no particular order)

Melinda France (Australia)
Love these Cocoa Vanilla papers for this colour... and the sketch was great to work with too.

Lisa Marie Watling (South Africa)
I flipped the sketch on its side.

Michelle Van Oudtshoorn (New Zealand)
I have cut my white card stock down to 11,5 x 11,5 and mounted this on a grey paper., adding texture and inking to the background. I have also used washi tape, and have brushed over my white flowers with the grey/black ink. The gorgeous title is a 2 Crafty chippie which I have inked.

Lisa Johnston (Australia)
 I added lots of fun embellishments and layers.

Tanya Heritage (Australia)

Louise Turner (Australia)
Totally loved busting my stash for this one! Managed to find lots of grey/black/white to combine the page - Lots of paper elements with a tiny bit of splatter!

Jessica Toulmin (New Zealand)
Using a deer head silhouette I found on the internet, I pierced holes in the outline and hand stitched it using Space Frontier dark grey embroidery thread. I used a black and white photo, along with minimal embellishing so that the hand stitched deer head was the focus of the layout.

Natsuko Suzuki (Japan)
I used a cut-file for the background and added stickers, flairs and wash tape. I also stamped in some of them.

For me this color is classy so I immediately thought of my bunny with a tux  I used stamp doily to add some « chic » and fancy design.

Caroline Elliam (Canada)
I used a stencil with gel medium to create a resist for the pattern strip at the top. I used Blazing black spray from Lindy's over it once dry. Finally, I've clustered the elements of the sketch to fit into my own style.

Note:  This is Caroline's final month with us here on White..with 1 and we are so sad to see her leave our little team as her work is simply amazing.  All the very best from all of us and don't forget to come back and visit with us sometimes :)
