You

I made this layout for a challenge at Lets Get Shabby. November's challenge was to make a monochromatic layout. Meaning: TONES/SHADING OF ONLY ONE COLOUR. That means - no adding in white or black as an extra colour or any other colour no matter how small it may be..... except for the photo. For this challenge I used beige/brown tones for the layout. I inked the papers light brown and used an old crochet doily that my grandmother gave me recently.  Then I took the big flowered flourish from Dusty Attic and I painted it in cream colour. I then inked the edges in light brown and added thin brown lines. For the title I used white chipboard letters and inked them in brown too. I also used 2 different clocks as layers. The smaller one is light brown with dark brown numbers. Finally I used some brown flowers and a tag for journaling. I hid the tag under the picture (see close-up below). It has a dark brown Treble on it. I do believe I meet the criteria on this layout.  I love doing monochromatic layouts. They always look so delicate.
