MESSY MONDAY: Anna Allan; Embellish in Monochrome...

Hello APOCD friends.
I received my DT kit last week and I immediately started playing.
I was super keen to try out that Higgins black ink - so out it came, along with the paintbrush and off I went!

My background is all ink - brushstrokes and ink splatters.
Then all my embellishments are sticking to the black and white theme, with a splash of cream mixed throughout as well.

I've used the papers, stickers, alphas, and flair from the kit and have added some word/phrase stickers from my own stash. I've also added some stencil, whipped spackle, and cotton detail to my page as well.

I chose photos that stood out but stayed with the neutral colour scheme. These silly shots of my big girl being her crazy self were perfect and I love how they look against the monochrome background.
The title -- I mounted the diagonal letter stickers onto white cardstock and cut around them to add a border which, I felt, made them pop out from the background more.

I thoroughly enjoyed creating this layout.
I hope you enjoyed seeing it!

Until next time...



  1. I found the ink a little challenging as it's out of my normal range of supplies - but I LOVE this layout. The monochrome is fantastic! Thanks for the inspiration
