All in White: Penny

This challenge was indeed a challenge! I had never tried to make an all white layout before, and this one put me to the test! I took this photo of my granddaughter Madison quite some time ago, just waiting on the right layout to use it on, and it seemed to fit perfectly with this theme. I ended up making almost all of my embellishments for this challenge just because most of the "all white" embellishments that I had, ended up having some other colors on them even if they were just in small amounts. For the flowers I used mainly McGill punches, Versa Mark ink, and glitter, with an assortment of brads and sequins, to hold them in place. To give this layout added texture I used mulberry paper, and various edged scissors on an assortment of paper strips. The bows on this layout were pre-made.
The dress I free hand drew, and then I pleated torn paper to give it a ruffled effect, then I added the lace, and sequins. I also added a piece of vellum which I had stamped images on, with white ink.

I wasn't prepared for the hardest part of this challenge however and that was in taking the photo of an all white page! After several failed attempts I finally had to take it outside to get a decent shot and even then the name portion of this layout, which I used bling on, didn't quite show up as well as I'd wished it would have. Good luck on your own "white" layout, I think I may try another one soon. Happy Scrapping! Love Penny
