Welcome to April ...

Welcome to our April challenge.

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.

Tracey Campbell (Australia)
Going back 9 years with these photos, when lime was announced as the colour this month I knew I had to pull these photos of Paige out from her 1st Birthday. I loved her in the green gingham dress with her strawberry blonde hair, both ate long gone now.

Toni Herron (Australia)
Lime Chaser was a fun colour challenge for me. I had the perfect Lime papers, but they got a bit lost together. I threw in a slightly darker Lime and it all just went “pow”. The multiple textured elements on this layout will have your hand running over it for ages!

Annemarie Caister (New Zealand)
I turned this page around to accommodate a portrait photo. This sketch was great for using up scraps of papers which I embossed with some of my embossing folders in my stash then lightly dragged an ink pad over to highlight the embossing.

Julie Schinkel (Australia)
Playing off the sketch, I decided to make my own background using texture stamps rather than different patterned papers. Teamed with a bright lime green background made for a great boys page.

Laurie Leahey (USA)
Used embossing powder and a stencil for the background.

Jane Taylor (England UK)

Emma Zapponne (Australia)
I decided to cut strips of old paper for the ‘patchwork’ look and then used oil pastels to add the pop of colour

We will have two main prizes each month throughout 2020 both selected by random draw.

The first will receive a delightful prize pack courtesy of White with 1. This is open to all entrants so anyone could be a winner.

The second winner will be an AUSTRALIAN / NEW ZEALAND entrant and will receive a prize from our monthly sponsor.  

Our sponsor this month is ...

"Hi,  I am Jodi, Owner/Designer at Corbett Creations Wood Veneers.  My laser cutting business came about because I would be constantly frustrated that I couldn't find the perfect title or embellishment to finish off layouts, projects or gifts.  I would then spend far too long trying to create the perfect embellishment and would sometimes rope my husband in to help me with all this cool tools in the man shed!  He has a love for wood also and together we purchased our laser.  I love being able to design and cut the perfect piece for someone to finish telling their story - the perfect title, the hard to find themed embellishment, a custom piece for the home or a meaningful gift, really makes me feel so happy because I know that their search is over and they have the perfect piece that they desired.  I love to create in wood, chipboard, cardstock, paper and acrylic with so many different mediums I can create so many embellishments and titles - the possibilities are endless.

Good luck with your entries in the challenge, I look forward to seeing everyone's work.

Plus there will be a special "Admin Choice" winner who will receive a small prize from me and an invitation to guest with us next month. 

To enter please visit our Facebook public group White with 1 challenges and put your entry directly into our monthly album under photos.
