City Skyline- GDT for White With 1

For the Scrap That! Blog hop scroll to the next post

Good morning every one!! Well for some of you it might be good afternoon or good night!! What's important is the GOOD!!

I have a new layout to share with you today!!

I was thrilled to win a feature at White With 1 last month. I was also very happy that they invited me to play in September with them as a Guest Designer!!

The challenge is as follows:

you must use WHITE+ BLACK+ ORANGE

(no other colors should be on your layout)

Taking inspiration from my recent seminar with Finn I created this really grungy layout using only those 3 colors.

One of my favourite things I did was doodling the skyline in black ink to imitate the photo!! not sure what you think but I love it!!

this picture was taken above the CN tower overlooking downtown Toronto!

Here is the result of my efforts!!



I dug into my junk box yet again and found lots of yummy treasures to add to this layout!!


Here you can see the doodled skyline better


I also like the dripping and the stamping on this layout!!



 
Materials used
White Cardstock
Prima Canvas resist flowers

Finally I just wanted to wish my Grandmother a happy birthday. Today would have been her 88th birthday. Safta I hope that wherever you are, you know we love you and we miss you!! Happy Birthday!!
