I thought I'd have a go at the White With 1 challenge this month. The colour this month is pistachio. This is not a colour I've used much but I'll have a go at anything!
I thought I'd do something different and not use a photo of my kids! These are the heifers we currently have on our farm. Sometimes they come right up to our kitchen just to check out what we're doing. Cows are really intelligent creatures and they definitely get curious about what we do.
To make the title, I used some old puffy letter stickers, placed them where I wanted the title to be then sprayed the area with a Dylusions spray. I then removed the letter stickers and when the spray was completely dry, I outlined the stenciled letters in a thick pen. I also did a little stamping with a white ink just to give the sprayed area a bit more interest.
Here's a close-up. Hmm, that spray looks a bit more like it's real life colour here.
I clustered some Manor House Creations flowers under the photo, twisting the stems to give the impression they are spiraling down the page. I also added twists of pistachio ribbon to reinforce this theme. I used an older gingham ribbon as this always seems quite "country" to me.
I stamped some farm animals from Stampin' Up! along the bottom to add to the farm feel. I usually don't go for this more cutesy style but I felt the simple black and white images added to the page. I sprayed a wooden KaiserCraft tree with white Dylusions to add to this rural feel.
