Geez Louise!

Have you ever tried doing a white monochromatic layout? It's kinda hard. But that's the current mixer at Mix it Up, so here's my go at it.
It took me forever because I was experimenting with different ways to add some texture without adding any colour. Some worked, some didn't.

Vintage lace around paper circle. Patterned paper covered with a wash of white acrylic paint and Pewter Liquid Pearls. I should have let the paper dry before continuing on with my layout, but I didn't and now it's curved. Hope it flattens out in the album.

KI butterfly lace cardstock layered under Bazzill Just the Edge (in white covered with Pink Paislee Coconut glitter). Butterfly stamped and embossed with Stampin' Up! silver ink and embossing powder.

I used a fair bit of silver. I counted that as close enough to white. Love this Thickers font. I think I have about 5 set in different colours and materials.

And I snuck in a wee bit of green bling. But I don't think it takes away from the overall monochromatic feel. I tried out using silver embossing powder and stamping an image while it was still warm. Very subtle but I'll definately be experimenting a bit more with this technique again 'cause I like it.
I love how this layout turned out and learned a few new things in the process. But I don't think I'll be tackling another white on white on white project any time in the near future!
