JAI # 19 - Just Add Monochramatic- Scrapbooking Challenge

Hi Everyone,

This months Scrapbooking challenge is a Theme challenge.

Julys Challenge is to use Monochromatic colours for your Scrapbooking Layout

Monochromatic is using only one colour way and you can use all shades of that colour and any neutral (but the focus colour has to be the main feature of your Layout) 

Here is my example this month- It features a pregnancy photo I took of my son and his partner at the just over half way mark- in 6 weeks or as nature decides I will have a new little grandson added to our family. My featured colour is in shades of Teal- aka 'Pool Party', happens to make a nice alternative to the usual blue choices for boysie layouts.

I;ve also given some of my new stamps a go on this layout

So I've done some hand stitching and I used my hole guide with the Stampin Up piercing mats as seen below. They give you such a precise and tidy line. I've added some stitching thread to my layout.

So why not click on the JAI badge below and see what our other members of the JAI team have done for this challenge and hopefully inspired enough to have a go yourself.

Have a great week,

EnjoyRuthy x
