White with One (Blueberry) November Challenge

My boy

White With One this month have joined with Charms Creations and Creative Scrappers to develop an awesome challenge. I don't often use blue in my designs, let alone blueberry. I contacted Charm and bought some blueberry bits to put into the layout. They are really well made and you can tell Charm puts a lot of love and care into each piece. The layout provided by Creative Scrappers seemed simple enough, that was until I started to put some papers onto the white page background, that's when I realised it was actually quite a challenge. The free digital download pack of blueberry created by Amy Prior, available on the WW1 blog page was a huge help.

This is what I came up with. I had packed all my bits and pieces in my little black carry bag. Carefully chosen the photo and printed off the download from WW1. I did all this because I was off on a camping trip and I love to scrapbook while I'm camping. I got to a beautiful relaxing spot, set up camp, got out my scrapbooking supplies I'd packed and realised I had forgotten to pack double sided tape!!! So this piece has been put entirely together using Gesso, and some glossy accents. Not bad I think.

I've had this photo of my son for a little while now. He's such a clown, he makes me laugh all the time. This is him wearing his sisters glasses. The look on his face sums him up in one! WALLY!

I couldn't wait to use this Marrakesh Chipboard Panel from Blue Fern Studios that I purchased the other week. Such an awesome pattern.

This beautiful chevron is handmade by Charms Creations. I've also used some plastic mesh and sequin mesh along with a Tim Holtz stamp Spill, Finnabair Checkered Clear Stamp along with her Prima Sunrise Sunset Checkered 12x12 stencil. I've also used my favourite "words" stamp, Tim Holtz stamp collection Going Somewhere

Dictionary pages layered with Gesso. Blueberry paper pieces edged with Black Soot distress ink.

Stamping up Mosaic Punch using the Blueberry digital download pack.

Love heart button from one of the Charms Creations embellishments. Some cotton circles.

Chip board pieces from the Marrakesh Panel covered with Blueberry patterned paper another of Charm Creations handmade pieces and it's done!

Thanks for checking in.

Pop on over to my Face Book page Pastiche Scrapbook Studio and check out my other creations.



I've added a stitch heart from the Charms Creations collection. I feel it helps to align the lo a little better. What do you think? 

Apologies for the quality of the photo. I took it on my phone.
