Stuck blog hoppers please scroll down - there's still plenty of time to join in the fun and pick up some great prizes along the way :)))
This challenge at Studio Calico is super easy and irresistable - simply use black and white photos with any of the gorgeous Studio Calico products. Now I love other peoples' black and white photos but I don't often change my photos because my memories are in colour and I tend to feel that there is something 'missing' when there is no colour in my photo (weird eh!).
Anyway, I chose these two photo of our family in San francisco. I wanted the focus of the page the be on my son and his cute pronunciation of the word San Francisco (Fran-hi-sisco). In both of these photos, although other family members are present, Benji stands out because of his quirky expressions and I think that the black and white photos really emphasise this. My papers are a combination of 'Abroad' and 'Take Note' (two of my favourite SC collections). I aded a little yellow spray ink to blend in my grey background paper with the rest of my brighter coloured papers. Lots of strips of washi tape add splashes of colour and interesting detail to the page. I like to use bright coloured papers with black and white photos to really make them 'pop'.
The cute wood grain thickers are part of the Amy Tangerine line from American Craft. They are so versatile and seem to blend in with any colour scheme.
Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting my blog :)))
