White With 1 October Challenge "Just Love You"

Hi everyone. This is my layout I have just finished for this months challenge over at the White With 1 blog. This months challenge was to do "White +Black+Paint/Mist". I absolutely love this colour scheme, very striking, plus I always use paints & mists anyway, so this challenge was for me.

Firstly I would like to point out my background as I am very happy how it turned out. I have layered up printed tissue by Collections with lots of muslin, loads of gesso & fininshed off with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmermist. I am really happy with the whole "texture" of this backgrounnd.
As the background is so "busy" I have just kept the rest fairly simple to create a nice balance. I have used this gorgeous "Dusty Attic" chippie tree. So love this tree.I have simply painted both the tree & the words just plain matt black to create total contrast to the busy background. Lastly I have finished of with some flowers & some yummy skeleton leaves, roses & beautiful metal disc all from Green Tara of course. Until next time.    Cheers Di  xx
